Is Hydroponics Aquaponics Aeroponics Safe For Planting?

Few years back, I went to Synagogue Church owned by Pastor TB Joshua at Ikotun in Lagos. That was the first time I would see a live flower growing without soil. That was Hydroponics system of planting.

Here I how I understand the terms:

Hydroponics:

Is a method used to grow plant without soil. They use mineral nutrient solutions in a water solvent.

Aquaponics:

uses a symbiotic combination in which plants are fed by the aquatic animals’ discharge or waste.

Or let me just say it’s a system of aquaculture in which the waste produced by farmed fish or other aquatic creatures supplies the nutrients for plants growth, which in turn purify the water.

Aeroponics:

is an indoor gardening practice in which plants are grown and nourished by suspending their root structures in air and regularly spraying them with a nutrient.

I have not really seen this systems used for planting anything other than flowers in Nigeria.

It’s trending and becoming a viral thing. I just would see why a Nigerian would want to use any of these system for a serious farming. We have good lands around us and to manage them could be a bit expensive.

To my own opinion, I think Hydroponics, Aquaponics and Aeroponics, are very interesting and sound civilised but using it as a Nigerian would just be cool. Especially for a rice farming or maybe a watermelon farming.
