Aeroponics is a unique sub-division of hydroponics whereby no growing medium is required. Instead, the roots of the plants are sprayed directly with water rich in nutrients. Here are some of the advantages of Aeroponics which make it a better system over hydroponics
Before you can make money with hydro farming, you need understand if you want to run a commercial or subsistence farm. Also, do you want to run your farm indoors or outdoors? Answering these questions will largely define your next moves as you set up your hydroponics farm.
Aeroponics is simply growing your plants in an environment where their roots are sprayed with a nutrient mix using nuzzles on pipes instead of submerging the roots in a solution of the nutrient mix. The roots are suspended freely in the roots zone.
Vertical farming is no rocket science. It simply involves growing by stacking planes of crops over each other. It minimizes space requirement when you need to plant numerous crops. Vertical farming is mostly practiced indoors because it facilitates plant growth all year round.
Aquaponics is an agricultural system that merges hydroponics and fish farming, having fish farming as the source of nutrients for your hydroponics garden. It is 100% natural and more environment-friendly.
If you need to cut costs on electricity and water supply, then you should consider practicing outdoor hydroponics. Rainwater and Sunlight are readily available outdoors, and you can utilize them at no cost in growing your hydroponics garden.
