The basic principle of aeroponic plant cultivation is aerosol spraying in closed or semi-closed environments of a nutrient rich in minerals aqueous solution. The plant itself is fixed by a support system, and the roots simply hang in the air, irrigated with a nutrient solution. The mixture is fed to the roots continuously or at short intervals so that the roots do not have time to dry out. The leaves and stem of the plant are isolated from the spray area. The use of aeroponics allows the creation of fully automatic systems for growing plants, which are much simpler than systems using a substrate.
