We can grow plants in water without soil, then why soil is important for plants?

Yes, the plants can also be grown without soil, but they cannot grow without the necessities that soil provides such as minerals & nutrients, including nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium.

While the cost of planting in water is typically higher compared to soil, over the long-term.

Soil is important for plants because they grow best when planted on land in the soil where they can get support, nutrients, protection from adverse temperatures, an even supply of moisture, and oxygen around the roots.
