Hydroponics
and its Benefits

            With an easy and convenient process,
hydroponics gardening which already started a long time ago in the ancient city
of Babylon, has recently made its way through the Philippines. It is already
found in places of Cavite and Pampanga. Hydroponics is the way of growing
plants without using soil. (Baroña, 2017) Hydroponics garden gives a lot of
convenience to the person who owns it. According to an internet blogger who
claims himself as a person whose hobby is hydroponics gardening, Howard Resh
(2003), hydroponics gardening gives emotional benefits as it is a satisfying
and stress-dissolving hobby. It is labor-saving since soil is not needed
therefore it won’t attract weeds that competes with the plants for sunlight and
nutrients leaving the plants an unhealthy and unwanted image. Hydroponics also
helps conserve water as it is not necessary to water the plants every day
because the set-up itself includes water and nutrient together to grow the
plant as it only uses 1/20 to 1/30 amount of water from traditional, soil-based
gardening. It is also been proven that vegetables grown in hydroponics gardening
can have up to 50% more vitamin content than industrial crops.

containes eight enzymes that includes bradykinase. When bradykinase is applied
to the skin topically, it helps reduce extreme inflammation. While the minerals

gardening as a fertilizer, it contains calcium that moderates soil acidity. (Pleasant,
2013) Soil acidity determines the operation fertilizers that releases nitrogen
that is necessary for plant growing. Low soil acidity leaches plant nutrients
coming from the soil, the reason why it is necessary to keep the soil acidity
in moderation with the help of the calcium coming from the eggshells. The
optimum pH (soil acidity) ranges from 5.5 to 7.0. (Ward, 2016)
