An advanced form of hydroponics, aeroponics grows plants in a high humidity environment without the use of soil. Instead, our plants’ roots hang in a chamber of nutrient rich mist that provides everything a plant needs without requiring it to expend unnecessary energy. This allows plants to grow much faster than their soil-based counter parts while using less water; typically 95% less in the case of most lettuce.
While aeroponics has been used as a research tool for 60+ years, it has only recently begun to gain traction as a viable method for farming at scale. We’re hoping our technology brings the initial setup and maintenance cost down to a point where scale can be realized.
