Aeroponics cultivates marijuana plants in which the roots are suspended in air and sprayed with water inside a chamber. Classified as a medium-less method, aeroponics began as a research approach in studying plants’ root systems.
Initially, there was little notion of using aeroponics for anything other than root-based research, but that has since changed. Aeroponics has become a recognized and beneficial method of cultivating plants.
Some of the benefits of aeroponics are the following:
- A considerable output of trichomes comes from crops cultivated in aeroponic systems.
- Because the plants’ root systems do not have to compete for space, aeroponic systems take up less room than hydroponic and outdoor grow facilities.
- Aeroponic systems have a faster grow cycle than soil-based growth facilities, in addition to a greater survival rate and less footprint.
