Is anyone here experimenting with this?
I am currently constructing a aeroponic/aquaponic hybrid system indoors. My plan incorporates 80 planting sites utilizing both horizontal and vertical channels. My first stage is almost complete. It includes a 100 gallon reservoir, a vortex filter, a 4200gph external pump, a manifold to divert water to each of the three growing areas, the main line which feeds the giant independent wet/dry filter (which take the brunt of most of the water flow), and the first 28 planting sites.
I am utilizing a large pump to maintain water quality, increase aeration, increase my Nitrosomonas and Nirtobacter cultures, and to later expand my system. The large pump has relatively low power consumption given its flow rate and I do not expect that I will need any other equipment to maintain excellent dissolved oxygen levels. The nutrient delivery to the plant sites is controlled by the spray jets inside the channels. Mind you, I am aware that this is not a high pressure aeroponic system, but I liked the idea of testing a misting environment that used no growing medium.
Any insight would be appreciated. I have much more experience with fish than I do with plants. I am doing my best to learn, experiment, and improve.
