Hydroponic farming has made it much easier to farm greens like lettuce, spinach, Swiss chard, and kale, herbs like basil, parsley, oregano, cilantro, and tomatoes. Growing hydroponic gardens has become a new trend in the past few months in India.
“For people who look for nontoxic, chemical free organic vegetables, greens and fruits, this one is the best ways of achieving a healthier lifestyle,” says Mr Dinesh Madaram, a bonsai designer.
Retired IPS officer Reddanna, who has nearly 300 plants in his house at Masab Tank, told Deccan Chronicle that this sort of plantation ensures easy growing of vegetables, green leafy and other medical purposes plants. He also grows plants like the insulin plant, which is regularly used to control diabetes, karpora tulsi and lemon grass, which keeps off mosquitoes.
Mr Paparao, another resident of Masab Tank, says the city lacks greenery and hydroponic farming process is needed for a healthier tomorrow.
