The ALIEN® AERO™ system utilises the air culture technique allowing more control of the environment around the root zone. The nutrient solution is delivered by means of a powerful but quiet water pump to Micro sprinklers located on the underside of each lid. The interval and duration of the feeding can be very finely attuned to the needs of a specific plant species.
The fact that the plants are suspended in air and the roots are not entrapped in any kind of medium makes the harvesting and crop rotation quite simple and straightforward.
Eliminating the growing medium is very freeing for a plants’ roots: the extra oxygen they are exposed to results in faster growth. Aeroponic systems are also extremely water-efficient. These closed-loop systems can use 95 percent less water than plants grown in soil.
The AERO™ system can be used as a recirculating or RTW (run to waste) system.
What’s the difference between the “Black Series” and “PRO Silver Series”?
PRO Silver Series features
The patent pending Dual-Flow™ fittings are an oversized 50mm for a more free flowing system. These fittings are over 3x the internal size of the 32mm. They enable the water to pass through slots located on the sides of the fitting, allowing total drainage of the pot.
Heat-reflective silver 50mm pipe is used vs the Black Series green 32mm.
The pots and lids are also produced from heat-reflective silver polymer.
The Silver Series feature copper plated drain covers which deter the roots from entering the pipework.
