Default Imitating soil with Hydroponics

Hi I was wondering how I can imitate normal growing soil with a hydroponics system, because premade hydroponic solutions already come loaded with fertilizers. I want to keep a hydroponic system that imitates normal soil closely, how may i do that?

Post Hydroponics

Hi,

If hydroponics is the cultivation of plants without the use of organic soil,
Lets say you had

Soil vs hydroponics

I dont think it would make a diffrence because in soil both organics and

organics components need to be decomposed into inorganic elements.

Some examples are nitrogen , potassium, calcium and more...

In a garden where a gardener is growing things they are able to have weeds , and for hydroponics you have no weeds.


I'm not sure how you can , but you should try finding a book at the library.

I'm sorry if i was not a help to you.

Good Luck with your research.

Default This might help!!!

Hi, wisteria

Since you asked for the diffrence of hydroponics and soil , well

Hydroponics

1. No soil required
2. Plants are irrigated automatically
3. No water stress
4. Nutrients are available at all times
5. No weeds, No bugs


Soil


1. Soil required
2. Plants needs to be irrigated to minimisce water stress
3. Water stress
4. Nutrients must be added to soil
5. Bugs,Weeds

This is the diffrence between them.

Hope that helped you.
