Apparently, growing houseplants using a technique known as hydroponics helps your houseplants to live longer and healthier, with less maintenance on your part. Basically, hydroponics involves growing houseplants in pots containing pebbles and water rather than soil.
I'd like to begin, but it seems like a very cumbersome process left best to commercial buildings and more experienced plant people than me. I found some basic instructions on how to start using hydroponics here.
Does anyone out there possess any experience with using hydroponics and wouldn't mind sharing some basic insights?
I frankly have no idea where to begin with this or whether I've strayed into territory that the average green thumb leaves alone for good reason.
