What is Aeroponics?
Aeroponic cultivation is a growing method that uses no soil.
The plant’s roots grow into a large, open rooting zone filled with nutrient mist.
How is this different from hydroponics?
Hydroponic systems typically feature flood & drain (ebb & flow) methods, which cause the roots to be fully covered with water. Aeroponic systems deliver nutrients and water through a high pressure mist, while allowing the roots proper oxygen flow.
Some important facts about roots…
A pine tree can only reach a limited size if grown in a small bucket of dirt. No matter how healthy the tree is, it will not grow larger. The small root system contained in the bucket simply will not support a larger tree.
The same tree re-planted into open ground where the roots have unlimited space will get much larger than it could in the bucket. The increasing surface area of the roots allows more water and nutrients to be absorbed, which in turn allows the plant to get larger.
The optimal conditions are created if the roots have room to grow and can reach a water source that is aerated with oxygen, such as a creek fed by a waterfall.
The Aeroponic Grow Chamber
How It Works
The Aeroponic Grow Chamber holds the water with dissolved nutrients (solution). Multiple lid configurations are available for nearly any size net pot.
The high pressure jet pump and proprietary spray manifold fill the chamber with a fine mist of nutrient solution. This mist is more easily absorbed by the roots. Any excess solution drains back into the chamber.
The cycle timer automatically runs the jet pump at your selected interval for regular nutrient delivery and maximum efficiency.
The pH meter with included reservoir & dosing pump automatically regulates the pH of your chamber to maintain optimal conditions for nutrient uptake.
The TDS meter allows constant monitoring of dissolved nutrient concentration for easy adjustments between reservoir changes.
The optional chiller keeps the solution cool to inhibit bacterial growth, while the chiller pump ensures the solution circulates continuously to prevent algae growth.
The Aeroponic Grow Chamber
Why It Works So Well
Room to Grow
The large amount of space inside the chamber provides roots enough room for continuous growth through the entire cycle.
Free to Breathe
The open area allows roots to breathe more freely than plants in dirt. Shelves support the roots so the bulk of the root mass remains exposed to air.
Drink It In
The small particle size of the nutrient mist allows the roots to uptake water and nutrients more efficiently.
Just like the pine tree growing near a creek fed by a waterfall, plants in the Aeroponic Grow Chamber will grow faster and larger, and produce higher yield with these conditions.
