Ultraponic (fogponic) System

Ultraponics or Fogponics is one of the most recent techniques. It is an advanced form of aeroponics (the same system as aeroponics except fogponics utilize a 5-30 µm mist within the rooting chamber, while Aeroponics uses a 50-80 micron droplet size) which uses water in a vaporised form to transfer nutrients and oxygen to the plant roots.


  The nutrient solution is vaporized on the roots with an ultrasonic atomizer. The ultrasonic atomizer is an electrical device which transforms the the water  into a mist of very fine droplets (about 5 microns).  Plants best absorb particles from the 1-25 µm range, the smaller particulate size means faster absorption. These droplets are so fine that they can be absorbed immediately through the pores of the roots. The mist circulates in the container in which the roots are housed using a fan and is ideal for plants, adding healthy moisture to any dry environment.

The Mist maker unit uses no chemicals, no dry ice and no heat.- it’s a cool safe mist that just uses normal water.
 This technique is particularly suitable for the horticultural industry.

  1. HI NOT TRYED IT YET BUT I LOOK FORWORD TO IT LOVE THE ROOTS THE PLANT LOOKS AFTER IT'S SELF WEED OUT PEACE

  2. The system is not viable since the solution gets heated up despite on-off cycle of the transducer nebulizer thereby damaging the plant roots. Moreover, the delicate device does not withstand round the clock operation & becomes defunct within a short period.

  3. you have nop experience or you would know your comment is bunk. Thats why you have a fogger unit and circulate the water and pump the fog to each plant separately. Not that hard to figure out
