Hydroponics is a method of growing cannabis that replaces soil with water to minimise the risk of contamination.

Instead of planting its roots in soil, in hydroponic cultivation the roots of cannabis plants are exposed to water-based nutrient solutions. Some hydroponic systems flood the roots in stages allowing them to dry out in between, whilst others ensure constant contact between the roots and water-based nutrient solutions.
