Aeroponics, especially High-Pressure Aeroponics (HPA), is a relatively new growing method. In High-Pressure Aeroponics systems, roots are suspended in the air and sprayed with an atomized solution of nutrients at specific intervals, while the rest of the plant is left to grow up and above the root chamber. This allows the roots to be exposed to more oxygen than traditional soil or hydroponics methods.Continue reading
One of the most hotly contested debates in agriculture has been that of organic hydroponics. Is it truly possible to cultivate soilless plants organically?

But these days, natural plant nutrition has evolved to the point where this is less of a concern. There are all kinds of organic formulations that claim to be suitable for hydroponnics.
And yet, many growers claim that organic growing will never actually be possible through a hydroponics system.
We’ll explore this debate in depth, and take a look at arguments from both sides of the fence to finally put this debate to rest.
