Hydroponics has two terms involved i.e. 'hydro' means water and phonics is toil. So people have defined hydroponics as the process of growing the plants in water. Photosynthesis is the process through which plants grow, using sunlight. Chlorophyll is present in their leaves and is essential for the growth.

This chemical composition helps to convert carbon dioxide (present in the atmosphere) and water (extracted from soil) into glucose and oxygen. Therefore, the presence of soil is not always important because components need by plants for growing are nutrients and water. It is possible to grow plants without soil if these two components get a substitute from any other source.

How Do Roots Get Support ?

Now, as this process doesn't have the support of soil, the question arises, how do these plants get the support? Here, the whole system of the roots get support by the medium of an inert such as rockwool, clay pellets, peat moss vermiculite etc. the basic concern lies here is to bring the plant in direct contact with the solution having required nutrients.
