Hydroponics is a way to skip the soil, sub in a different material to support the roots of the plant, and grow crops directly in nutrient-rich water. Many approaches to designing hydroponic systems, are possible but the  elements are the same, you need: 

Fresh water, with a balanced pH. Most plants like water with a pH level around 6–6.5.  Adjust the acidity of your water with over-the-counter solutions found at your local hardware, garden, or hydroponic store.

Oxygen. as for traditional farming, roots can get the oxygen needed for respiration from pockets of air in the soil. it is necessary  to leave space between the base of your plant and the water reservoir, or you will need oxygenate your container , buying an air stone or installing an air pump.

Nutrients. magnesium, phosphorus, calcium,etc  are the essential nutrients to stay your plant healthy and productive –– like plants growing in the ground need healthy soil and fertilizer.
