Aeroponics is one of the most advanced options for growing plants without soil. Technically, Aeroponics is a subclass of hydroponics, and our normal hydroponic nutrient ranges work perfectly well in Aeroponic systems. Plants in Aeroponic systems have access to nutrients, water, and oxygen at all times, so plants have the potential for unparalleled growth.
In Aeroponic systems, the plants are suspended above the enclosed reservoir chamber, pumps create a pressurised mist of nutrient solution that covers the exposed roots. The size of the droplet produced is extremely important to your plant's health. Too large a droplet, and it limits the root's access to oxygen. Too small a droplet, encourages root hair growth without any lateral branching. The systems sold here are all produce an ideal droplet size. Using our Aeroponic growing systems will allow your plants to grow a dense network of roots with enough root hairs to uptake nutrients at a fast rate, leading to supercharged growth. Read the buyer's guide below for more information on Aeroponics.
One of the largest benefits of using an aeroponic system, is the small amount of media used to support the root zone. This lack of a matrix means there's not as much waste between cycles and a much smaller chance for salt to build-up which could lead to toxicity, negatively affecting plant health. Without a substrate, it's also much harder for pathogenic organisms to get a grip and spread between plants.
Amazon aeroponic system
The Amazon Aeroponic System is one of the few commercially available aeroponic systems that can support a plant through its entire life cycle; vegetative growth and flower. Amazon aeroponic systems can be tailored to your requirements depending on how many plants you want to be housed in the system – It can have anywhere from 4 to 32 holes, just in get contact when you make your purchase to specify how many holes you require.
Xtreme propagators are an aeroponic option for ensuring the highest possible strike rate when your cuttings root. They’re available in several sizes, so you can keep propagating your favourite cultivar at whatever scale you choose. X-streams are only large enough to support a plant through its early stages, it must be moved onto a larger hydroponic system once rooted in an x-stream
You’ve got to maintain the cleanliness of your spray heads for your aeroponic system to continue functioning properly. Consider running something like drip-clean between cycles to dissolve anything that could block up your system – you could even run drip-clean whilst plants are in the system at a low dilution rate.
We also carry spares and components for both the Amazon and the X-Stream, which can be handy to keep your system running in the event of a failure. The moving parts are the most likely to fail, so it’s sensible to have a pump and replacement spray heads to hand.
