Do you believe in growing plants without soil?

May 28, 2009 8:39pm CST
I heard about hydrophonics which helps plants grow using mineral nutrient solution without soil. In short, having plants without soil and take care of it. Don't know if this can be eaten as vegetables. What do you think about this? If you haven't heard this,do you want to try? I am thinking of having one but don't know how to start but I think it is safe since there will be no pesticides or insects from the soil. Save from many pesticides and fertilizers products. What do you think? Do you believe in this new technology? or not?

Can you tell us how did she do? And what kind of plants are they? That's an interesting thing to do. Will like to try that out... Are you willing to share with us? Thanks!

I came across a recurring two-hour hydrophonics seminar in the Philippines. For a P1,500- fee, there's an inclusive starter kit. (next one's on Saturday Oct 16 2009) They're at Annapolis St, Greenhills near Annapolis MRT. Deo at (632)489-3243 would be glad to answer inquiries. Cheers
