Online PR News – 30-September-2011 – – Phoenix, Arizona – Phoenix Hydroponics, a new store carrying products and supplies for growing plants and vegetables without soil, has recently opened its store in Phoenix, Arizona near the Dear Valley Airport.
Phoenix Hydroponics, started in 2011, realizes that even though organic food is favorable against those genetically modified or chemically treated, the additional price for these foods at the supermarket can be a turnoff for many consumers. Phoenix Hydroponics seeks to make organic food available at a cheap price for those willing to put in a little extra effort.
Roy Spaulding, owner and founder of Phoenix Hydroponics, opened the store to promote healthy, organic eating with a do-it-yourself flair. While traditional gardening requires a wealth of training and supplies, the simplicity of hydroponics is Phoenix Hydroponics’ way of proliferating home gardening without the required time investment. Those with green-thumb aspirations can jump into gardening quickly and easily with a visit to Phoenix Hydroponics. “I want to make vegetables simple for people,” says Spaulding, “there’s a sense of fulfillment in eating what you grow – a healthy feeling of accomplishment.”
Spaulding, an arborist with a background in horticulture, has been interested in home gardening for as long as he can remember. In his youth, he looks back on gardening as fun activity shared between family members. Now with a family of his own, Spaulding sees the same excitement in the eyes of his children as they nurture the garden together. By offering a wide array of different growing systems and nutrients as well as a host of classes on hydroponics right out of his store, Spaulding hopes to elevate hydroponics from an exotic, new-age practice to a healthy and common family activity.
Hydroponics is defined simply as the method of growing plants sans soil. This makes the entire growing process cleanlier, simpler and more easily controlled. Fruits and vegetables grown through hydroponics also grow larger and faster than traditional growing methods and also carry more nutritious benefits. This is due to the fact that the gardener can more accurately and effectively control the vitamin intake of the plants and does not ascribe to a more general sprinkle-and-pray method. When feeding plants grown through hydroponics, the nutrition is infused directly to the plant at the perfect time in the plant’s development for maximal yield of fruits and vegetables. Hydroponic growth systems count as organic under all definitions.
