While you are using water as your primary source of nutrients, there is still a need for a substrate where the seed is placed and the plant extends from. Your plants need stability and still be able to breathe and have space for their roots. There are many commonly used substrates, and following article, I will go over the most useful ones.

The water can only take in the nutrients at certain PH levels, so if your PH value is too high or too low, certain minerals might not be available to your plants. I included a chart in this Article, showing which nutrients are available at which PH levels.
