The main benefit of using a hydroponic system is the ability to control high energy sources to maximise plant growth precisely. Plants use energy in light, known as photosynthetic assimilation, to create specific organs such as foliage (Basil, Lettuce,), flowers (Rose, Gerbera), or fruit (Tomato, Cucumber, Eggplant). All these organs require a significant amount of photon energy to lead to their creation.
It is up to the gardener to adapt the duration of illumination (and intensity) according to the stage of growth of the cultivated species. Some plants see their life cycle entirely "guided" by the duration of illumination whereas others require specific low light periods (e.g. cuttings in rooting phase require a lower illumination than a young plant).
