Hydroponics is a subset of hydroculture, which is the growing of plants in a soilless medium. Hydroponic growing uses mineral nutrient solutions to feed the plants in water, without soil.

Applying renewable energy sources, this group aims at raising plants indoors in grow cabinets. The research experiments will be verified using a pioneering system for simultaneous measurement of photosynthesis and chlorophyll fluorescence in different types of chambers.     

Different types of hydroponics:

  • Wicks system
  • Water culture system
  • Flood and drain system
  • Drip system
  • NFT system
  • Aeroponic system
