Doing NFT Hydroponics as a hobby

NFT Hydroponics is probably one of the most interesting hobbies that you can get. To see a plant growing from seed to harvest in record times in only a thin layer of water (with a bit of nutrients) can be very satisfying. There are so many studies and interesting stuff you can do. Photography and plant behaviour studies like in the photos below is but just a drop in the sea.
