Growing plants without using soil are called “aeroponics,” and this method is known as “hydroponics.” The word “hydroponics” originates from the roots “hydro,” which refers to water, and “ponics,” which refers to an environment that has been artificially constructed. With these techniques, professional gardeners can stack plants in towers or trays to achieve a vertical arrangement that reaches nearly to the top of the greenhouse. Hydroponics and aeroponics are quite distinct methods of plant cultivation, yet, both are well suited for cultivating leafy greens, microgreens, and medicinal and culinary herbs.
Even though hydroponic systems need more water to start, that water is kept within the system and may be recycled several times. Cultivating root vegetables using some aeroponics systems is possible, although this option is not open to hydroponically produced plants.
Because hydroponic systems are typically simpler to construct and run, and because they allow a much greater margin for the mistake, they are the system type recommended for novices. Aeroponic systems are significantly more accurate and technically advanced, making them more prone to malfunctions and other complications.
