Hydroponic gardening is a way of growing plants which gives us the ability to control all aspects of their growth and development. With careful control, plants can flourish to a far greater extent than those grown naturally in soil.
The reasons for this staggering growth is the ability to allow the roots of the plant open access to oxygen by leaving them exposed to the air, plus the ability to provide the plants with an unlimited supply of nutrients which are added directly into the water supply, which in turn is also unlimited.
It follows that if the advantages of hydroponics are based on maintaining a high level of control at the root zone, then to maximise results further you must have the same level of control over the other aspects of that environment. Namely, temperature, light and humidity. This can only be done by growing plants indoors.
In addition, growing indoors in a controlled environment means the plants can remain free of pests and soil carried diseases.
These days all the tools you need to grow plants indoors are readily available, and technological advances mean they are improving all the time. Lighting systems, fans, Co2 generators and atmospheric controllers combined with a quality hydroponic system mean that you can supply your plants with the optimum environment for their growth, which can be tailored to suit the species you are growing. In Britain, where our climate can alter drastically in a matter of hours and our levels of sunlight are often limited by cloud cover, indoor gardening is an ideal solution.
