By Damian Jackson

Have you ever considered setting up your own hydroponic indoor garden? The advantages and benefits over soil based gardening are many.

Take a look at the following advantages of hydroponic indoor gardening:

1. You will not need to purchase any pesticides! The majority of garden pests thrive in the soil, as you won't be using soil, there is nowhere for the pests to go!

2. After your initial set up costs, indoor hydroponic gardens are around 20% lower than traditional gardening.

3. You will be able to fit more plants in a smaller area. Even though your plants will grow larger in most cases, this is true because the roots don't expand as much in hydroponic gardens. This is because they already have all the nutrients they need.

4. Maintenance time is greatly reduced in indoor hydroponic gardens! Weeding doesn't exist and there is no need to water the plants. In fact all you really need to do is pick the fruit or vegetables when required.

5. The yield is year round and permanent! This is because you have manipulated the growing conditions to be optimum all the time! When its off season, you can sell the crop for higher prices!

6. You can grow them anywhere; garden, greenhouse, rooftop, window ledge, bedroom, attic or cellar.

7. Hydroponic plants grow on average 40% larger than there soil based counterparts. This is because you have given them permanent access to all the nutrients they need and you've given them their ideal growing conditions.

8. A big problem for many novice gardeners is over or under watering! This problem is taken away in indoor hydroponic gardens as you don't need to water them. This can save you accidentally killing them.

9. For the reasons already listed above, hydroponic plants grow up to 50% faster than other methods of gardening! This has obvious advantages if you're feeding a large family or are planning on making some money out of it! - 29857
