What does “Hydro” mean?

Short for hydroponics, a form of gardening with nutrients dissolved in water rather than soil. Amateur and hobbyist growers benefit from hydroponic growing due to ease of production and lack of need for soil. It also does not require as much water as traditional gardening. While many vegetables can be grown with this method, it's become a popular choice for those who grow cannabis. Hydro-grown weed is known for higher levels of THC.

Example usage:

“Hydro is the best option for growing indoors--as long as you've got enough space for the equipment.”
