WLTX 19, LEXINGTON, S.C. — Vertical Roots, based out of Charleston, is expanding their hydroponic lettuce farms to a second location at the S.C. State Farmers Market in Lexington County.  

CEO of Vertical Roots, Don Taylor, explains hydroponics as farming without using soil as a medium.

 “The roots are hanging in the air and the water and water is running over the roots. So, we deliver water and nutrients to the plant with no dirt,” said Taylor
