Modern day families are increasingly becoming environmentally  health conscious. It is, therefore, no surprise that organically grown  vegetables are fast replacing the flower pots in balconies and terrace  gardens. Taking a step forward, city dwellers are now adopting  Hydroponics the art of growing plants without soil.

Soil-less  farming has picked up because people have become aware about saving  water and eating chemical-free food.
