As long as they have enough water, nutrients, sunlight, and carbon dioxide, plants can thrive without a speck of dirt. In fact, growing them in a hydroponic system like the Miracle-Gro® Twelve™ Indoor Growing System actually gives you lots of benefits over growing in soil.
6 Reasons to Skip the Dirt and Grow with Miracle-Gro® Twelve™
Did you know that plants don’t actually need to be grown in soil? As long as they have enough water, nutrients, sunlight, and carbon dioxide, they can thrive without a speck of dirt. The way you do it is to grow them in a hydroponic (aka water-based) system like the Miracle-Gro® Twelve™ Indoor Growing System—a method that actually gives you lots of benefits over growing in soil. Here are a few:
1. You can grow your own food in your living room.
Since you’re not relying on soil and the Miracle-Gro® Twelve™ Indoor Growing System has a powerful grow light, you can move your garden where it’s most convenient: inside your home!
2. Have room for an end table? Then you’ve got room for a garden.
It’s amazing how much food you can grow in a small space. The Miracle-Gro® Twelve™ Indoor Growing System, which doubles as a sleek end table, has room for 4 full-sized plants to grow big and lush. The plant nutrition that comes with this hydroponic unit delivers nutrients right where they need to be, so roots don’t need to spread far and wide to look for food.
3. You can grow fresh produce year-round.
Who cares about “best planting time” when you’re growing indoors under a grow lamp? That’s right: Anytime—even winter—can now be prime tomato season!
4. You may see an earlier (and bigger!) harvest.
Since the Miracle-Gro® Twelve™ Indoor Growing System delivers all of the water and nutrients your plants need, your veggies and herbs don’t have to waste precious energy looking for those necessities the way they often have to when grown in soil. Plus, water provides more oxygen to the roots than soil does, allowing plants to absorb more nutrients. Both of these things mean your plants may actually grow faster than they would in soil—and produce more, too.
5. Your plants may need less water.
How could it be that a water-based system might actually require less water? The fact is, the Miracle-Gro® Twelve™ Indoor Growing System recirculates the water it uses, so the only water needed is the water the roots take up. In soil-based gardens, on the other hand, there’s no way to ensure all of the water added to the garden reaches thirsty roots, so some will inevitably be wasted through evaporation.
6. You won’t have to deal with as many problems.
There are many pests and diseases that depend on soil to survive. Take away the soil and you won’t have to spend a moment worrying about them.
Here’s one more important thing to know about the Miracle-Gro® Twelve™ Indoor Growing System: It’s super easy to use, even if you’ve never grown a thing before in your life. With all of these benefits, what are you waiting for?
