Hydroponics is the science of growing plants without soil. Plants grown in hydroponic systems will develop faster and they tend to produce higher yields. As a result, hydroponics is used extensively in commercial agriculture. But what about a hydroponics set-up in your home?

We challenged Jordan Weiss, a proud exponent of hydroponics, to break down some of the common barriers that exist between soil lovers and hydroponics.
