  • Hydroponics is a method of growing plants in water without soil. In this water mineral nutrient solutions are mixed which are useful to grow a plant, of course these plants get nutrients equal to those which grow on soil. Here the mixture may contain the nutrients from fish waste, duck manure. So we can understand that here we need not use soil, but we use water with nutrients.
