Indoor Air Plants
Hydroponics or Hydroculture technique is also growing in popularity. A good number of plants can be grown through this system. This involves growing indoor plants in a watertight container filled with support substrate (without the use of soil). Water and nutrients are supplied below the surface of the substrate. The purpose of the substrate is not only to act as a support media for the plant, but also to assist the movement of water and nutrients to plant roots. Commonly used mediums include expanded clay aggregates, coir, perlite, Vermiculite. Introduce water & nutrients through a water filled tube. Watering from the top may result in formation of salt crystals on the top layer of substrate. Hydroponics is much less messy since no soil is involved. Less frequent application of fertilizer is required and pest infestations are also greatly reduced.
