|I am growing hydroponic tomatoes for a science report. I was just wondering what "ponics" means (I already know that "hydro" means "relating to water").|
|The name hydroponics comes from the Greek "hudor" for water and "ponos" for work, therefore the word hydroponics means "waterworking".|
The modern concept is that hydroponics means growing plants without soil. However, a more accurate definition is growing plants by supplying all necessary nutrients in the plants water supply.
