What initially began as a method to do in-depth, root research, aeroponics is now a widely-accepted cultivation method.
This is a growing style where the roots are suspended in the air, as opposed to a growing medium like soil or coco coir, and the water and nutrients are delivered via a closed loop system that sprays the roots. If you’re a little green when it comes to gardening, this might not be the best option for you. But when done correctly by experienced cannabis growers, aeroponic systems can be very successful with larger plants and better yields.
How does it work?
Aeroponic plants are grown in net pots suspended over a misting system that continuously sprays the roots with a blend of water and important plant nutrients. This type of system requires three main parts to work successfully, a planter bed, a reservoir, and a pump.
The first part is the planter bed, the area cannabis plants grow out of which is constructed to keep the plant and roots separated. The second part is the reservoir, which is where the water and nutrients are stored, and also the area the roots will expand into. And the third part, the pump, is a high-pressure spray system that delivers the nutrient-rich water to the plant roots.
