Want to learn more about Aeroponic gardening? Commonly known as tower gardening/farming. This type of gardening takes a lot of work. However, with time it produces healthy crops.

Understanding Aeroponic Gardening

This type of gardening involves growing plants without the use of soil. Instead, it relies on air to deliver a nutrient-rich mist to the plant’s roots. Its main purpose is cultivating plants in air or misty environments, eliminating the need for soil.

Aeroponic loosely translates to working air. The production of crops in tower-like gardens has become a modern way of gardening. Tower gardens help with saving space.

The fundamental principles involve suspending the plants in semi-closed environments and feeding the dangling roots and lower stems of your crops with a nutrient-rich water solution. This organic, nutrient-rich solution is easily digested by the plants, making your crops grow faster. 

The mist provided in the closed environment is delivered directly to the roots. Aeroponics maximises nutrient absorption while putting less stress on your plants which in turn leads to it producing healthier crops.
