Explaining the meaning of hydroponic farming, Shilpa added: “For those of you who don’t know what Hydroponic Farming is, here’s something for you: The science of soil-less gardening is called hydroponics. It basically involves growing healthy plants without the use of a traditional soil medium by using a nutrient like a mineral-rich water solution instead. A plant just needs select nutrients, some water, and sunlight to grow.”

The actress also revealed the salad ingredients that she has grown in the farm: “And just like that we have bok choy, mint, lettuce, kale, basil, and so many more greens to devour. Very few things feel as wonderful as seeing your passion come to fruition.”
