Hydroponics is commonly described as growing plants without soil. However, this is not strictly true. A better definition would be that hydroponics is ‘providing all of the plant’s nutrient requirements in soluble form as you water’. Therefore, put in its simplest form, this means you could grow a plant in soil of poor quality, by feeding it when you water it. 

Hydroponics is also often considered to be a watchword for indoor gardening as it is seen to cover everything. Some believe hydroponics to be very complicated, but this need not be the case, it is only as difficult or complicated as you make it. There is no doubt it is a more efficient method of growing plants.

pH is a measure of how acidic or alkaline the nutrient solution is. The pH scale runs from 0 to 14, 7 being neutral, below 7 is classed as acidic and above 7 classed as alkaline. The majority of plants prefer it to be mildly acidic when growing hydroponically, therefore somewhere between 5.8 and 6.5, as otherwise nutrient availability can be affected and some elements become unavailable to the plant.

Most tap water is between pH 7 and 8. Monitoring the pH is vital, as it helps to ensure that the plant has the necessary optimum amount of nutrient mixavailable to it. As you can see from the chart, some elements are less available to the plant when the pH is out of the optimum range. Please note that adding nutrient alters the pH of the overall solution.
