Hydroponics is nothing new, it has been around for hundreds of years. It wasn’t taken seriously at first as a legitimate way to grow your own garden and/or turn a profit from the growing that you are doing, but today it is a whole industry in itself. There was little to know about it back in those days, but all it means is that water is used to grow plants. Today it is a booming industry, now that there is more knowledge about how to make it work.
- Hydroponics, or the practice of growing plants without soil, is thought to have been used in Ancient Babylon.
- In addition, relics show hydroponics being used in Ancient Egypt, China, and more.
- Modern hydroponics works with traditional farming to grow delicious fruits and vegetables.
“Hydroponics – the practice, not the name, has actually been around for thousands of years. It just wasn’t as popular back then because they had no place to plug in their LED lighting setups.”
