Hi, this is Steve for Expert village, and today we are going to be talking about the difference between Soil and Hydroponic Organic gardening. One of the main differences between soil and organic is with soil your hands will get dirty with Hydroponic it's a soilless technique so your less likely to have soil and dirt in your house or on your fingernails. The other thing is people say you don't want your food tasting like dirt, so you won't have that when you are growing Hydroponically. The most important thing about Hydroponic growing is your not using soil, it's a soilless technique. There are many different ways you can do it, but what you want to make sure you do is use when your doing it Hydroponically is a good organic nutrient that is derived from all kind of organic amendments like the fish meals, composed Seabird Guanos, Kelp Meals, Worm Castings, Bat Guanos, and things of that nature rather than chemical nutrients. With the Hydroponic system the plants tend to grow faster, and your able to control the way the plant grows, because you'll give the plants a good nutrient balanced watering so the roots don't have to grow to look for the nutrients it's given to them so you have a smaller root structure and a bigger plant.
