Maybe you're new to the hydroponic method and wondering if any plant whatsoever can be grown with hydroponics. Using the right techniques and methodology, the answer is pretty much yes however that doesn't mean every plant should be grown this way.
Worm castings (also called “vermicast,” “vermicompost,” or, more simply, worm poop) are extremely nutrient-rich, far outpacing conventional fertilizers (and even organic compost) in terms of effectiveness. As worms digest the material they consume, they break down complex nutrients, making them more bioavailable for plants.
