I have been devising a way to grow microgreens in large quantities using fogponics. This is a video that shows how nicely that is going.

Bucket fogponics

This is a Home Depot paint bucket w 2 gallons of nutrient solution in the bottom. An ultrasonic fogger is floating in the solution sending nutrient fog up to the roots of these plants suspended above the solution. The plants are growing like crazy.

Fogponics

Posted by Nika On March - 4 - 2013

Lately I have been experimenting with new indoor growing methods. One I am working on now is called Fogponics and is a variation of aeroponics (growing without soil). Fogponics uses a nebulized nutrient mist generated by ultrasonic foggers.

Ultrasonic foggers require an optimal depth for good fog output. You can buy floats for between $10 and $25 or even higher. This video covers my DIY solution to this problem. The depth of water over the fogger is about 1.5 inches or so.
