Hydroponic Growers and Retailers

Did you know that fresh Connecticut Grown produce is available year round, even in winter? Connecticut’s hydroponic growers are producing fresh lettuce, peppers, herbs and more right now.
Hydroponics is a method of growing plants in a water based, nutrient rich solution. Hydroponics does not use soil. The basic premise is to allow the plant roots to come in direct contact with the nutrient solution, while also having access to oxygen, which is essential for proper growth.
