Hydroponics and "vertical gardening" utilize soil less methods to provide nutrients to plants, typically in a controlled environment. This sections contains hydroponics information for the home gardener. Hydroponic Gardening Home.
Hydroponics is a subset of hydroculture and is a method of growing plants using mineral nutrient solutions, in water, without soil. (wikipedia)
- Wikipedia: Hydroponics is a subset of hydroculture, the method of growing plants without soil, using mineral nutrient solutions in a water solvent. Terrestrial plants may be grown with only their roots exposed to the mineral solution, or the roots may be supported by an inert medium, such as perlite or gravel. The nutrients in hydroponics can come from an array of different sources; these can include but are not limited to byproduct from fish waste, duck manure, or normal nutrients.

- Aeroponics - Aeroponics is the process of growing plants in an air or mist environment without the use of soil or an aggregate medium. The word "aeroponic" is derived from the Greek meanings of aer and ponos. Aeroponic culture differs from both conventional hydroponics, aquaponics, and in-vitro growing.
- Anthroponics - Anthroponics is a type of hydroponics system that uses human waste like urine as the source of nutrients for the cultivated plants.
- Aquaponics - Aquaponics refers to any system that combines conventional aquaculture with hydroponics in a symbiotic environment. In normal aquaculture, excretions from the animals being raised can accumulate in the water, increasing toxicity.
- Fogponics - Fogponics is an advanced form of aeroponics which uses water in a vaporised form to transfer nutrients and oxygen to enclosed suspended plant roots. Using the same general idea behind aeroponics, fogponics uses a 5-30 m mist within the rooting chamber and as use for a foliar feeding mechanism.
- Folkewall - The Folkewall is a construction with the dual functions of growing plants and purifying waste water. It was designed by Folke G nther in Sweden.
- Grow box - A grow box is a partially or completely enclosed system for raising plants indoors or in small areas. Grow boxes are used for a number of reasons, including lack of available outdoor space or the desire to grow vegetables, herbs or flowers during cold weather months.
