How do plants grow in space (ISS)

I always wondered how we would grow plants in space. Anybody has some info on this?

Turns out, very well... In fact the lack of gravity doesn't even influence the direction of growth of the plant or the roots as much as thought before. They use the light as guidance when gravity is not in the equation. Look at this short video on growing plants outer space on the ISS in the module called VEGGIE.
