Aeroponic System

Aeroponics is one of the most high tech growing systems. It is very expensive and complicated technique and is usually used by professional growers. Requires heavy maintenance and great attention to detail, close monitoring and have a total reliance on constant electricity. There’s no growing media used. The roots hang in the air and are periodically sprayed with a nutrient solution, usually every few minutes. The timer that controls the pump should run for a few seconds every 2-3 minutes.

Air cultures optimize access to air for successful plant growth. Aeroponics is a technological leap forward from traditional hydroponics. It uses both water and air to produce more colorful, better tasting, better smelling, and incredibly nutritious fruits and vegetables.

Because the roots are exposed to the air, the roots will dry out rapidly if the misting cycles are interrupted.
