What do plants need to grow?

There are 5 main things that all plants need to survive:

  1. water,
  2. light,
  3. the right temperature (some like it much hotter than others),
  4. air,
  5. nutrients.

Surprisingly not all of them need soil to grow. In fact, in South Florida, we have orchids growing halfway up our palm trees.
