Hydroponics is a hobby for some and necessity for some. Go to any part of the USA and you will find hydroponic farmers. Some have their garden in their backyards and even in their balconies and some have huge structures made in open areas for this form of farming.
is a hobby for some and necessity for some. Go to any part of the USA and you
will find hydroponic farmers. Some have their garden in their backyards and
even in their balconies and some have huge structures made in open areas for
this form of farming. Hydroponic farming has many benefits but the best benefit
is perhaps that one can completely control the farmin
One form of hydroponic farming is aeroponic farming. In this form of farming plants are grown without roots. This is made possible by creating cuttings and then planting them in growing medium like EZ Clone Classic. This product has foam discs in which the cuttings can be planted. These plants have enough moisture to sustain themselves without roots. Roots are, after all, used for absorbing moisture and nutrients. EZ Clone Classic is a great product made from recycled materials and you can use it as long as you wish to. If you want to recycle it after some time you can do that as well.
EZ Clone Classic has other great benefits too. It has low heat conductivity and it doesn't conduct electricity. It works as an excellent sealing material and is water proof. It is also resistant to UV light. Since it's made of elastic material you can expand it as well. If you want to create specific shapes of growing medium you can use this product to great effect. It is also approved by USDA, NSF and FDA for growing plants by being in contact with them.
What EZ Clone cannot provide to cuttings is light and this can be solved by the use of Mylar film. Mylar is a patented product of DuPont Tejjin Films. It is a specific type of plastic sheet made from PET. It is a wonderful product that is essential for any hydroponic farmer. Mylar film is able to reflect light. It has almost mirror like qualities that can reflect light to all the plants inside your hydroponic structure.
Plants need light to make food and grow. Since hydroponics requires artificial light the consumption of energy is, at times, very high. With Mylar film you can ensure that a small amount of light is optimally reflected and spread inside the hydroponic structure. This way the plants will get adequate light and the farmer can save a lot of money too.
Not every shop has items like EZ Clone Classic and Mylar film. If you have to use the standard mode of shopping you could find it difficult to procure these items. A better alternative is to use online stores. There are specialized online stores that sell these products and you can find them in Google. Buy the products and improve your hydroponics.
