                                                         General Hydroponics
                                                           By Ranbhir Bhalla

   General Hydroponics was established in 1970's by a group of innovative scientists, engineers and
technicians with a view to take forward the revolutionary concept of Hydroponics. Today General
hydroponics is a leading name in the hydroponics field. They have factories all over North America and
Europe. Hydroponic cultivation by NASA on the International Space Station is done with assistance
from General Hydroponics.

Hydroponics is an innovative technique for soil-less cultivation of plants in nutrient rich solutions.
Hydroponics has some typical advantages over the conventional methods like the plants are healthier
and grow mature early. They require less space and even if the gardener is out for a long time the
plants don't suffer. Hydroponics consume less space and water.

General Hydroponics products are used for hi-tech gardening, commercial crop production and for
agricultural experiments in laboratories and Universities across the globe. The scientist and
nutritionists at General Hydroponics are currently developing new hydroponic systems and perfecting
nutrient formulas. These techniques and nutrient formulae will enhance yield, flavor and vitamin &
mineral content in food crops. The Farm Division at General Hydroponics is testing many varieties of
plants for growth rate, yield, flavor, nutrition, appearance, shelf life and hydroponic viability. Various
techniques for growing top-quality crops of higher nutritional value are in experimental stages.

Three basic hydroponics techniques are used by General Hydroponics. In the first one, called nutrient
film technique, roots of plants are suspended in nutrient mixture containing trough. The second one
called aeroponics includes suspension of plants in mist and nutrients are supplied through an air pump.
The third technique is aggregate system. The roots of plants are placed between inert materials like
clay pebbles or foam chips dipped in nutrient solution.

Since hydroponics are not grown in soil they rely on nutrient solution mixed in water for their growth.
Standard fertilizers are simply inadequate for them. Thus specially formulated fertilizers like General
Hydroponics Nutrients are used for them. These are hydroponic fertilizer mixtures used under pH
buffer of pH range 5 to 6. The nutrient mixture is changed every two weeks and during this time only
more water is added to the plant. This is so because if the concentration of nutrient solution rises
above a certain level this might burn the plant roots. General Hydroponics Nutrients are reliable,
adaptable and pH buffered hydroponic nutrients. NASA uses their Flora-Series for space flight

                                                                By Susan Fielding

 Hydroponics is the cultivation of plants in a nutrient rich solution rather than in soil. It involves growing
plants inside without using real sunlight. The word hydroponics comes from two Greek words, meaning
"water working".

If you enjoy gardening, but have limiting factors such as very little gardening space, problems with
pests or unsuitable weather conditions, then hydroponics could be the answer for you. For many
people, the thought of successfully gardening indoors all year around has only been a dream.
However, with hydroponics this is possible.

General hydroponics is a hobby many people are picking up today. Hydroponics is simpler than what
most people think, and is proven to have several advantages over regular soil gardening. The following
are some of the many benefits of growing plants using hydroponics:

Less space is required, and plants can be grown closer together. Growing plants with hydroponics is
possible almost anywhere.

Less water is required as there is no soil which soaks it up before it reaches your plant’s roots.
Hydroponics is great in areas where there are water restrictions, as less water is lost to evaporation.
When you water your regular garden plants, approximately 10% of the water actually makes it to the

No pests or diseases. You don't have to worry about pest control, and because your plants are grown
indoors, there are fewer problems with diseases such as mould and fungi.

Reduced maintenance time. Once your hydroponics system is set up, all you need to do is change the
nutrient solution on a regular basis. This only takes a few minutes. There is no need for any weeding.

Types of plants grown with hydroponics:

Nearly all plants can be grown using hydroponics. The most common are vegetables such as
tomatoes, lettuce, cucumbers, and peppers. Other plants include flowers and herbs.

Although hydroponics is possible for most plant species, a limiting factor is the amount of physical
support required. If you are growing climbing plants, you will need to provide them with extra support.

Hydroponics supplies:

Hydroponics gardening supplies can be found at most good gardening stores nowadays. Before
visiting your local store, it is a good idea to do some research online first, so you know what you need.
You can also purchase supplies online.

Your grow lights are one of the most important factors for hydroponics gardening. Hydroponics stores
sell individual parts as well as complete growing systems. These will include the hydroponics and
lighting systems, fans, and timers, etc.

In conclusion, a hydroponics system will initially take a bit of time and effort to set up, but in the end it
will be well worth it.
