Default growing medium and feeding a nutrient solution


It's to my understanding that the term hydroponics means using an inert growing medium and feeding a nutrient solution, correct?

I germinated seeds each in it's own rockwool and it sprouted out of the cube in 3 days. I then placed each cube in a 6" pot w/ holes in the bottom containing vermiculite. I have a nutrient solution that includes the correct amount of hydrogen peroxide. I place 3 pots per 2 foot holding tray thats about 3" deep. If I pour the nutrient solution in the tray, the vermiculite should act like a wick and suck the solution up correct? Will this system work for me?
