Used to grow crops for citizen consumption.
If no pub or refrigerator is available to store food, or no Bartender is on duty to serve cooked Food, then citizens are able to eat meals directly off of full grown-plants. This costs no matter and is slightly more nutritious than replicator food, but is still less effective than cooked meals in terms of Morale.
Hydroponics Cultures grow more slowly if their health is low. Don't build more than your Botanists can keep up with.
A random crop is chosen when the Hydroponics Culture is first built, either Metacorn, Glowfruit, or Icky Pods. In order to get a different crop you will need to demolish and then rebuild the culture.
Botanists grow crops here, which is then harvested to feed people in Pubs.
