Protocol: Optimizing Hydroponic Growth Systems For Nutritional and Physiological Analysis Of Arabidopsis Thaliana and Other Plants 0

Hydroponic growth systems are a convenient platform for studying whole plant physiology. However, we found through trialing systems as they are described in the literature that our experiments were frequently confounded by factors that affected plant growth, including algal contamination and hypoxia. We also found the way in which the plants were grown made them poorly amenable to a number of common physiological assays.
