Hydroponic Gardening Versus Regular Gardening

I am not an expert when it comes to gardening but I do enjoy it and it is one of the things that gives me joy to do around here. My husband on the other hand, knows more than me and I consider him as an expert when it comes to gardening. He is also knows a lot about this hydroponic gardening which he has been doing for how many years. All I know about the hydroponic is you can do it either outdoor or indoor and the plants does not requires dirt but just planted in this tiny clay balls that's called hydroballs, I'm not really sure.
 
Anyway, as you may all know, my husband built a greenhouse specifically for his hydroponics. Right now, he's got some lettuces, tomatoes, herbs, eggplants, peppers and water spinach planted in there hydroponically. What amazes me about this hydroponic gardening is how big the plants gets compare to regular gardening!

Below you can see the difference of the Eggplant planted in hydroponic versus the one that is planted in dirt...
As you notice, the left pic which is in hydroponic, you can see how big the leaves are compare to the one on the right which is an Eggplant planted in dirt! And the funny thing about this is, before my husband planted the Eggplant hydroponically, it was smallest plants in the bunch but now it is the biggest! That's just one of the beauties of planting in hydroponics!
