Green herbs growing out of plastic tub in home hydroponic system
January 27, 2020

Hydroponics continues to be a popular topic in the horticulture industry, but usually it is on a very large greenhouse scale.  

Why is it so popular? Well, it's because your plants can grow 30% to 40% faster. And it is just pretty darn cool.

Did you know that you can build a hydroponic system at home?

This particular system you can build is a passive hydroponic system, meaning that nutrients, which are in a fluid solution, are drawn up and absorbed by the growing medium — a wick or some other device — and passed through contact to the roots.
