Aeroponics

¦er-ō-¦pä-niks | Noun

Definition:

A cultivation practice that involves suspending the plant roots in an environment of mist and air where they absorb water, nutrients, and oxygen. An aeroponic system is more temperamental than other types of cultivation practices and requires careful, consistent monitoring. Aeroponic cultivation allows for greater access to the oxygen in nutrient-rich solutions, which can lead to faster and more efficient growth than hydroponic or soil cultivation.
