The results o( this 'ro1ect 'roved that hydro'onics is a (aster easier and more e((icient way to grow lettuce seedlings. The seedlings were noticed to be growing twice as (aster com'ared to when grown normally. The researcher had a negative mindset as to what the outcome o( this research would be however the results have 'roven to be uite di((erent (rom what she had e0'ected. A#ST0ACT This e0'eriment was set out to carry out a research on the e((ectiveness o( growing 'lants with other mediums instead o( water to test the e((ectiveness o( hydro'onics.Then a(ter realiing the goal o( the e0'eriment the growth o( the 'lants were observed and com'ared to see whether one medium reacts better to hydro'onics  better than the other. The theory was 'roven success(ul and a number o( e0tensive research was connected to the e0'eriment all surrounding hydro'onics. 1iterature revie2 *I( you give a 'lant e0actly what it needs when it needs it in the amount that it needs the 'lant will be as healthy as is genetically 'ossible. ith hydro'onics this is an easy tas+, in soil it is (ar more di((icult./- ashington Mills4 boo+) The great Art o( Agriculture #6637 I( you grow two genetically identical 'lants using soil (or one and hydro'onics (or the other you will almost immediately see the di((erence this (actor ma+es. 8aster  better growth and much greater yields are 1ust some o( the many reasons that hydro'onics is being ada'ted around the world (or commercial (ood 'roduction as well as a growing number o( home hobby gardeners.*In a well-balanced hydro'onics system a 'lant can receive almost everything it needs. 9unlight is never the limiting (actor in a growing system this is because the amount o( energy hitting a given 'iece o( land is absolutely gigantic. The best cro' $  we can do right now by way o( 'hotosynthesis is genetically engineered corn and it still only uses :$.3; o( yearly sunlight. There(ore the limiting (actors are water and nutrients. An awesome hydro'onic system will 'rovide these limiting (actors (or these 'lants./- Lewis %hrissy4s boo+) 9tabiliation o( the <rowth o( Agriculture (or the 8uture <eneration #==$7<rowing medium is the material in which the roots o( the 'lant are growing. This covers a vast variety o( substances which include oc+wool 'erlite vermiculite coconut (iber gravel sand sawdust charcoal styro-(oam and many more. The growing medium is an inert substance that doesn>t su''ly any nutrition to the  'lants. All the nutrition comes (rom the nutrient solution water and (ertilier combined7. ?ou can there(ore easily control everything the 'lants receive. The strength and '@ o( the nutrient solution is easy to ad1ust so that the 'lants receive  1ust the right amount o( (ood. The watering!(eeding cycles can be controlled by an ine0'ensive timer so that the 'lants get watered on schedule as needed. !eto&olog #.The materials were diligently gathered these included, si0 large bowls're(erably trans'arent7 eighteen lettuce seedlings the three mediumschosen, water sawdust and charcoal7 three needed nutrients namelyabstract A macro nutrients, itrogen Botassium and Bhos'horous7 & traceelements7 and % calcium nitrates7.2.8our containers were (illed to the brim with the three media each o( themedium were re'licated twice in two similar designated containers.3.They were moistened a(terwards to (acilitate (or the trans'lanting o( thedelicate lettuce seedlings.C.8our lettuces were 'lanted in each container 5.A com'osite liuid (ertilier was used to 'rovide nutrients to 'lant on a daily basis (or si0 additional wee+s.
