What is true aeroponics?

True high-pressure aeroponics fundamentals. The basics.

In an aeroponic system the plant’s root-zone is suspended into an environment where the roots protrude into an atomized nutrient solution; the leaves and crown, often called the “canopy”, extending above. The roots of the plant are separated by the plant support structure. The lowest stem and root system are sprayed or misted for short durations with a hydro-atomized pure water/nutrient solution.

What do you think?


  1. Could you do a video specifically on media. In my experience you need SOME media to support the literal plant. Even if that's polystyrene rings and a netcup or rockwool. The roots are still exposed to the mist, but the plant itself is also supported. I don't see how blindly following some arbitrary set of rules about 'true' aeroponics is praxis for building the best possible biosystem.

  2. I like your logical based approach, which you back up with the evidence to support your hypothesizes. By presenting the influences of the factors involved in the complete system, you increase the efficiency, while lowering the maintenance involved in keeping a system running. Keep the videos coming! Live long and prosper.

  3. Hey! I'm interested in designing an aeroponics system. Is there a group online somewhere where you meet? I have a computer science degree, and I am currently working as a software engineer for a data storage company. I am excited to automate the hell out of this.

  4. I'm having difficulty with the waist part of the system and the replenishing of nutrients. Are the nutrients recirculated when they drop back into the bucket? How much and how often do we add? Also when designing a system, what is the optimum number and placement of nozzles inside the grow room? Should they be placed on all four sides and how do we know the timing of the mist? Thank You for a wonderful series.

  5. OK. Root chamber needs to be between 65 to 75. What about outside temperature? Is there a range it has to be. I would like to know what happens if outside temperature drops bellow 50 while the root chamber is maintained 70.

  6. Good day, after watching your video about Aeroponics, I really get a much clearer picture. The previous video that I watched talks about how expensive it can be doing Aeroponics.
    Thank you so much.
