Aeroponics Group Project

Summary Status

Prelimary Phase - Still Learning, planning and basic assembly


We are group of people who want to learn and experiment with aeroponics - growing plants without dirt. Aeroponics is different than Hydroponics in that the plant roots don't sit in water or get flushed with water. Aeroponics uses a spray mister or ultrasonic mister to transfer water and nutrients to the plant root system.

Vegetable Wish List

  • Lettuce
  • Spinach
  • Cherry Tomatoes
  • Cucumbers
  • Peppers
  • Strawberries

Our goal is to produce some amount of edible produce within 6 months!
