Aeroponics was introduced in 1982, a few years after the NFT system; it originally comes from Israel. Aeroponics is a system in which misters are used to continuously bathe the roots in very fine droplets. The smaller the droplets are, the better is the contact between the nutrient solution and the roots, and the better is the uptake of food and water. Given that, practically speaking, the roots are growing in air; they always have sufficient oxygen available and large yields become possible. The biggest disadvantages off aeroponic systems are the relatively high initial investment costs and the systems’ proneness to malfunction. Leaving a thin layer of water on the bottom of the misting room will ensure that plants don’t go without water if there should be a system failure.
