Poptren.suara.com – On the site Epic Gardening written by William Frederick Gericke, a plant physiologist, in 1936 has introduced hydroponic techniques which are now growing. He researched and found that apart from soil, plants can also grow in solution and water, although at first this discovery was doubtful.
Hydroponic techniques are becoming a trend because they save space and tend to be easy to maintain. This method will provide access to water, oxygen and nutrients that plants need directly to the roots so that plants can survive.
Hydroponic techniques are divided into several systems, such as aggregate culture hydroponics. The technique uses sand, gravel, rice husk, charcoal and sterile materials as media. Another with water culture hydroponic techniques. Water culture is a technique that uses micro and macro nutrient solutions in the planting medium where the solution is placed at the bottom of the planting medium with the aim that the plant roots can absorb and touch the nutrient-rich solution.
There is also a hydroponic technique nutrient film. This technique is applied in narrow and long ditches with a planting medium made of thin and stainless metal plates. This technique works by giving artificial nutrients to ditch water to be absorbed by plants later. Over time a thin layer will appear around the roots of the plant which serves as food for hydroponic plants.

Another thing with tidal hydroponic techniques. This technique is called the technique of flooding the plant with nutrients in one cycle. This technique is much preferred by plant lovers because it does not need to continuously provide nutrients for plants.
Ever heard of aeroponic techniques? This technique is a high-tech and effective hydroponic system for raising plants. Aeroponics makes plants and their roots will continue to experience air suspension. You can also use an air pump storage area to spray oxygen to the roots of plants which allows the roots to continue to get nutrients and oxygen so that plants can grow bigger and healthier faster.
