Hydroponics allows greater ease for delivering the exact plant needs than soil, in turn creating healthier plants. Many hydroponic systems use nutrient film technique where the plant is growing directly from water, however not so many people are aware of the use of growing mediums. The medium is flushed with the nutrient water solution while the PH level is controlled to stabilize nutrient intake. Systems can range from complex, to very simple household pot plants, or they can be built into other systems with a nutrient water pipe.
