  • Is AeroGarden hydroponic or aeroponic?

    Yes! The AeroGarden uses a specific Aeroponic technology called Ein Gedi Aeroponics, which grows plant roots outward into air space, and then down into a highly oxygenated nutrient solution.

    Why does AeroGarden grow so fast?

    The lower portion of the plant roots are submerged in a nutrient-rich water solution and roots near the base of the plant are exposed, allowing access to more oxygen. The higher oxygen levels delivered to the roots of the plants improves nutrient delivery, and in turn the plants grow faster and healthier.

    What type of hydroponics does AeroGarden use?

    As the name implies, the AeroGarden uses a subset of hydroponics called aeroponics, which is one of the six main hydroponic systems. AeroGarden systems allow for plant roots to grow outward into air space, and then down into a highly oxygenated nutrient solution.
