Hydroponics

hy·dro·pon·ics/ˌhīdrəˈpäniks/

Noun: The process of growing plants in sand, gravel, or liquid, with added nutrients but without soil.

When I stayed at my friend’s house the other week she took me to a new grocery store near her.

I was blown away when I saw this lettuce.

Have you ever seen more beautiful lettuce?

Then, she took me to the observation deck to show me where it grows.

I will admit, I know nothing of the pros and cons of hydroponic growing systems.

But I do know I was mesmerized by the beauty, symmetry, and precise nature of the process.

It never ceased to amaze me what people’s minds can create.

Have a great day!

  1. I saw the hydroponics system in epcot a few years ago when we were in Disney. We went on the Land ride and it explained the process. They grow a ton of food there that way and then use it for the restaurants there. It was really cool.

  2. I thought of Epcot also. One of my favorite parts of the park, so interesting. I had no idea there were grocery stores where you can see the same things. Probably alot cheaper than going to Epcot!
