Steven Ang’s -Hydroponic Farm

several varieties of lettuce are grown in this greenhouse

Steven Ang’s Vegetable Farm – One of the features of this vegetable farm is the Hydroponics (from the Greek words hydro water and ponos labor) is a method of growing plants using mineral nutrient solutions, without soil. Soil less culture.
Gericke originally defined hydroponics as crop growth in mineral nutrient solutions, with no solid medium for the roots. He objected in print to people who applied the term hydroponics to other types of soil less culture such as sand culture and gravel culture.

The distinction between hydroponics and soil less culture of plants has often been blurred. Soil less culture is a broader term than hydroponics; it only requires that no soils with clay or silt are used. Note that sand is a type of soil yet sand culture is considered a type of soil less culture. Hydroponics is a subset of soil less culture. Many types of soil less culture do not use the mineral nutrient solutions required for hydroponics.

Mr. Steven Ang is an active member of the Philippine Orchid Society , Philippine Horticultural Society , a certified  chef  and  an entrepreneur .

According to Mr. Ang,  he supplies several restaurants and supermarket in Metro Manila and surrounding areas. He had an interesting collections of cactus, hibiscus, roses in his farm.
