Aeroponic and Cloning Machines: A specialized form of hydroponics - no growing medium used - plant roots hang suspended in the air and are kept misted with nutrient solution.
Deep Water Culture (passive) Hydroponics Systems: The simplest hydroponics system - plant is placed in a container which stands in a tray of nutrient solution. Ideal for the beginner "hydroponicist".
Ebb and Flow Hydroponics Systems: (Flood and Drain) Tray holds plants above nutrient solution - pump floods them with nutrient solution, then drains.
Rotating Gardens: The gravity pull of rotating hydroponics gardens provide amazing results!
Top-feed Drip Hydroponics Systems: Pump delivers a continuous trickle of nutrient onto the top of the growing medium in this hydroponics system.
Vertical Gardens: These gardens take up very little floor space yet hold many dozens of plants in hydro systems six-foot tall or more.

Hydroponics is an established branch of agronomical science. Progress has been rapid, and results obtained in various
countries have proved it to be thoroughly practical and to have very definite advantages over conventional methods of horticulture.
The two chief merits of the soilless cultivation of plants are, first, much higher crop yields, and secondly, the fact that hydroponics
can be used in places where ordinary agriculture or gardening is impossible. Thus not only is it a profitable undertaking, but one
which has proved of great benefit to humanity.
People living in crowded city streets, without gardens, can grow fresh vegetables and fruits in window-boxes or on house tops.
By means of hydroponics all such places can be made to yield a regular and abundant supply of clean, health-giving greenstuff.
Not only town dwellers, but also country residents have cause to be thankful to soiless culture. Deserts, rocky and stony land in
mountainous districts or barren and sterile areas can be made productive at relatively low cost.
Other advantages include faster growth combined with relative freedom from soil diseases, and very consistent crops, the quality
of produce being excellent. There is also a considerable reduction in growing area, weeds are practically non-existent, while
standard methods and automatic operations mean less labor, less cost, and no hard manual work.
Some plants can be raised, out of season, better control of crops naturally results in addition to no dirt and no smells.
Waterlogging never occurs now. Chemically grown plants are not inferior to naturally reared ones in point of flavor, nor have
analyses shown any deficiency in vitamin content."
