Gardening has been said to help in relieving stress, and now it’s even easier and more convenient to enjoy this pastime if you choose hydroponic gardening for growing your plants. Hydroponics is a technique for growing vegetables and other plants using nutrient-enriched water rather than soil. There are lots of advantages to this method, and these days many people prefer it over traditional soil-based gardening.
Growing vegetables in this kind of setup is much faster compared to those that are grown with soil. The plants are oftentimes healthier, as well. This is because the nutrients in the water are more accessible to the roots of the plant. Soil actually slows down the process. When you add fertilizer and water to the soil, it takes time before the roots are able to absorb them.
As well, there’s almost no need for pesticides in soil-less gardening. This is because the breeding ground for most pests is usually in the soil. Soil also encourages the growth of fungi, another factor that gives the advantage to hydroponics when it comes to healthy plants.
Working with soil rather than water is also more complicated when it comes to growing vegetables. You need to assess the type of soil you have, and use fertilizers to enrich it to guarantee that your vegetables will grow. On top of that, soil gardening requires a lot of space, which many people do not have these days.
All that soil-less gardening requires is to add a special mix of nutrients to some water to make a solution in which the plants are grown. This is as simple as following the directions on the box. This is every bit as beneficial to the plants as the nutrients they would otherwise obtain from the soil. But don’t try these nutrients on your outdoor vegetable garden. Saturating your garden with both soil and hydroponic nutrients will be too much for your vegetables.
Water-based gardening is recommended for people who have a limited amount of space in their garden or those who want to maintain an indoor garden because natural light isn’t always available. Light is one of the most important factors for this kind of gardening so consider opting for a light especially designed for indoor plants. Both natural and artificial lighting are beneficial for vegetables grown hydroponically.
Hydroponic gardening does away with the limitations of a traditional garden. The best part is that you can enjoy fresh, nutritious vegetables throughout the year.
Hydroponics takes gardening to a whole new level. If you’re interested in learning how to grow a hydroponic garden, you need to know what you’re doing before you get started. Find out the essentials at Hydroponic Gardening.

How To Plant Cucumbers From Seeds – Organic Vegetable Garden
In this video, I will show you how I grow cucumbers from seed in cups. It is very easy and because of the short germination period is a fun project for kids as well. The cucumber I’m planting is Bush Cucumber.
I planted my cucumber seeds on April 27th, 2016
As always, the day before planting my cucumber seeds, I soaked them in water for 24 hours by putting them on a plate with paper towel underneath and above them and covering them with room temperature water.
I use bigger cups to plant my cucumber seeds because cucumbers don’t like to be transplanted too many times. To start my seeds, I used Jiffy Organic Seed Starting Mix which, in my opinion is the best for starting seeds indoors.
After I plant my cucumber seeds, I bottom water them by putting water in the tray and letting the soil absorb it (it takes about 20 minutes).
I keep the cups inside until the cucumber seeds germinate, and then slowly start introducing the seedlings to the intense Arizona sun 🙂
When time to water my cucumber seedlings, I again, bottom water them with 1 tea spoon of Liquid Organic Alaska Fish Fertilizer deluded in 1 gallon of water. And here in Arizona, once outside, I have to water my seedlings every night because the day temperatures are in the high 80s and low 90s.
I planted my cucumber plants into containers a month later, on May 30th.
