What is “Aeroponic growth”?

Aeroponics is the process of growing plants in an air or mist environment without the use of soil or an aggregate medium.

The word “aeroponic” is derived from the Greek words aer (ἀήρ, “air”) and ponos (πόνος, “labour”).

Aeroponic culture differs from both conventional hydroponics, aquaponics, and in-vitro (plant tissue culture) growing.  Unlike hydroponics, which uses a liquid nutrient solution as a growing medium and essential minerals to sustain plant growth, or aquaponics, which uses water and fish waste, aeroponics is conducted without a growing medium.

Today’s aeroponic systems are all industrial in appearance with large unattractive metal or plastic structures that are not suitable for display but rather are hidden away from the end consumer of the foodstuffs grown.

Systems supposedly intended for at home use appear more like a sterile environment found in food factories rather than a natural growing environment.

What’s unique about

Known aeroponic and hydroponic growing systems can have circular, oblong and oval features but are still clearly man-made designs.  The shapes and designs of currently known units are all designed with frames, usually rectilinear, that do not exist in the natural environment.

The desire for aeroponic growing systems with a more natural organic look is of interest. The ability to grow fresh fruits and vegetables in a highly efficient manner in the exact same location as consumed would be of great interest to various groups of people including consumers and restaurateurs.

BotaniX AeroponiX is developing a unique infrastructure to meet these needs and provide affordable, yet appealing and visually attractive, aeroponic growth platforms for a wide variety of public use.

We are excited about the future of home and light commercial aeroponics.

There are many opportunities for growth in the industry and for qualified investors to participate in the development, refinement, and production of emerging technologies to meet this previously unaddressed market space.
