Growing House Plants in Water

Can I grow indoor plants in water only? What do I do with indoor plants in water when the water begins to smell bad? Other than replacing all the water.

I have seen plants grow in these greatly expanding crystals.

They also say:
" Water by itself is not a sufficiently nutritional diet. We recommend adding a few drops of liquid minerals to help provide nutrients to your plants in this new and any other growth media for your plants."

They sell this stuff (above) but I think that liquid "Miracle-Gro" would also work. You'd only need a drop every few weeks or once a month.

Here's apicture of their website:

You can also add food coloring to the crystals:

what kind of crystals are those? and where can i find them? I have been rooting ivy's and i do not want to transfer them to soil. but would love to transfer into a larger vase with crystal or even the rocks. Would that be a good idea to do?
