Sansevirea or Snakeplants on Hydroculture
The term “hydroponics” is familiar to most people. Hydroponics involves growing plants in a liquid growing medium solution. Hydroponics has become quite popular in recent years, particularly in the growth of vegetables like lettuce and tomatoes.
Hydroculture is similar to hydroponics in many ways but has a key difference – instead of using a nutrient solution containing water as a growing medium, an inorganic solid growing medium (or inert) is used.
The inert growing medium is usually rock-based, typically something called “expanded clay aggregates.” Hydroculture can be regarded as “passive hydroponics” which means the plants are grown without soil, bark or peat moss.
