Aeroponic, Hydroponic and Aquaponic

by Josiah, age 11 So how this works, is the aero in aeroponic stands for air. Hydro in hydroponic stands for water. Aqua in aquaponic stands for aquaculture which means life. And ponics, in the last part of each word, means to grow. These plants grow so much better than a regular garden, they also use 95% less water. That is great because that means you don’t need to water it every day. Also there are no pesticides so that every thing you eat wont get you sick. Oh wow this is the best part, you can do this in space with 0 gravity wow!Read More →

We feed it every 2 weeks and water it every week or more like every 2 days. The tomato plant has almost reached 20,tomatoes the roots for the tomatoRead More →
