Theory of operation

Aeroponics is the most advanced means of cultivating plants. It has been show to outperform soil based cultivation by up to a factor of ten! The reason it is so effective is that since the roots are suspended midair, they receive the maximum amount of oxygenation possible while maintaining 100% humidity for exceptional growth potential.

The diagram at right details how the roots grow down through suspended baskets containing GroRox and into the misting chamber where they are gently sprayed with nutrient solution every few minutes.

To get started building this garden, you'll need mostly common parts which should be available in local garden and housewares stores. If you run into problems sourcing the parts, visit the FutureGarden store online at: There should a kit available by the time you read this which includes many of the harder to find items needed to build this garden.

A glimpse at the picture below quickly reveals how healthy roots should look. Full, white in color and just loving that Aeroponic chamber! These tomato plants grew so quickly under a 250W HPS lamp that we had to cut them down because they took over our office!
