Description

Hydroponics is the cultivation of plants by placing the roots in a liquid nutrient solution rather than in soil. Many of us, have placed a plant cutting in water and noticed that it sprouts roots and begins to grow. This is a simple form of hydroponics. Unfortunately, most plants will not sprout roots and all you get is dead stems and smelly water. This course will teach you the fundamentals of what to feed your plants and how best to do it, hydroponically.

Soon you will understand this scientific art and the course will break down the technical terminology and guide you through the process of successfully operating your own hydroponics set-up.
