How it works

Our plant growing
system is comprised of FOUR major components:
the growing chamber(26 1/4 inches square
by 20 inches tall)
Little Giant sump pump with attaching
nutrient misting arm
growing platform top with nine individual
repeat cycle timer used to control misting
Our system is
self-contained with NO external attachments.
Because the plant's
roots need oxygen in order to absorb nutrients, our growing chamber's depth
provides an abundant amount of oxygen.
You simply pour in
2 to 5 gallons of water and aeroponic nutrients. The
misting pump with the attached
misting arm sits inside the
growing chamber at the bottom were the
Set your repeat cycle
timer OFF time to 12 to 15 minutes and your
ON time(misting) to 10 seconds.
We set your misting
time to 6 seconds.
Plants are supported
in the holes in the growing cubes, with a
plant support disk, and are inserted
into the platform top. If your plants
need additional support, you can use a
plant stake in order to tie your
plants up. The plants roots are now suspended inside the growing
chamber where they develop strong roots.
misting device, which is located inside at the
top of the growing chamber, next to the plant's roots, periodically mist
with oxygenated nutrients. This gives the plants the energy they need
in order to grow faster and produce a larger crop.
No nutrients are
wasted because the nutrient spray is re-circulated after misting the roots.
The excess nutrients then fall back to the bottom of the
growing chamber to be re-circulated and
sprayed again, making this Aeroponic technique desirable to any grower.
germinating, rooting cuttings, and growing times are cut in half
grow your plants from seeds or cuttings
grow your plants to full term or transplant in soil
plants are stronger, larger, and of the highest quality and flavor
re-circulates the nutrients until the plants use it up
research has proven that Aeroponics is better than Hydroponics
initial investment is a little high but the savings to operate go on
no more growing medium to buy and discard in the land fills
less and less nutrients to buy
less energy cost because our system does not run continuously
cleaning and water changes are done in fifteen minutes or less by putting
a bucket below the chamber and opening the
valve and rinse
with about a half gallon of fresh water, let this drain, close drain valve
refill with fresh water and nutrients
and so on
After the growing chamber
and misting arm is functioning to your desired setting it is time to:
