BOGOR. Sunday (24/5), some volunteer of RZ invited the member of Junior Volunteer in Kawung Luwuk Residence, Tegalgundi Village, North Bogor to learn simple hydroponic system and practice how to make it.
Hydroponics is gardening without soil. In hydroponic gardening systems, plants are placed in a growing medium and nutrients are provided directly to the roots. The use of hydroponics broadens the ability to garden in small spaces where adequate land is scarce and in arid or barren conditions not conducive to propagation.
Hydroponics Offers Many Benefits such as complete control over nutrient balance, no yard needed, water-saving, and affordable.
In this opportunity, they learned how to make it from used plastic bottles. They were instructed to cut the bottles and filled the bottle with soil and fabric as its axis. “They enjoyed this training. We hope that they can apply it at their home for better environment,” Putra, a volunteer of RZ, said. ***
