An Overview of Aquaculture and Hydroponics

Aquaculture is among the more beneficial form of gardening. When looking to put together a quality garden, people usually have to have soil in order to plant the various plants they want to grow. However a method known as hydroponics is one way in which you can put together a quality garden without needing soil. With this method people will be able to grow plants using nutrient solutions. They will be able to do this by only using water. This was a method that was devised in the 18th century so it has been around for a while.


There are many advantages to using this particular gardening method. The first advantage is that you don’t need to use soil. The next advantage is that water stays in the system and can be used again which will lower water costs. Gardeners will also be able to control nutrition levels and lower nutrient costs as well. Due to this being a controlled system, no nutrition pollution is put into the environment. People also get high yields that are stable. Another advantage is that pests and disease are easy to get rid of due to mobility of the container. It is also easier to harvest and there is no pesticide damage as well.


One of the main techniques in using aquaculture is to use a static solution culture. This is when plants are grown in containers such as a mason jar. The solution level is low and therefore allows the roots of the plant to get the necessary amount of oxygen to grow. People can also use a Mariotte bottle in order to automatically maintain the solution levels of the plants. Then there is continuous flow solution culture which allows you to have the nutrient solution often flow past roots. As a result is easier to automate and not have to worry about making temperature adjustments and regulate nutrients as often.


When using aquaculture people will have a more simple and efficient way to garden. They will also be able to preserve the environment and not have to worry about using soil in order to grow plants. With this method you can also use grow tents too.
