Aeroponic cloning and growing is an offshoot of hydroponics. Typically, these methods of growing are used in well controlled environments such as indoor grow rooms and greenhouses. Given the ability to control all the parameters and create an ideal growing environment, one is able to exceed conventional standards and produce superior results. By growing indoors it is easy to monitor and adjust your plants, seedlings and clones to ensure they are receiving the optimal conditions suitable for the each stage.
Propagating aeroponically is arguably the best and easiest way to preserve your genetics, multiply crops and save you time and money. During the aeroponic cloning process, no medium is used and your cuttings produce roots in midair, making it very easy to see the progress. The perfect convergence of air, moisture and temperature produce roots that can be transplanted into any medium you so choose.
Unfortunately, like with all plant cloning, there is a chance of failure, most likely due to bacterial infection and pathogens resulting in root rot. While a thorough cleaning process and the use of EZ-CLONE Clear Rez does minimize such tragedies, it is still up to you the grower to make sure everything is done to avoid this.
EZ-CLONE Enterprises Inc. has spent the last few years extensively researching the true effectiveness and benefits of the use of an air pump in Aeroponic Systems. We have discovered that there are NO benefits to using an air pump, such as these common myths: faster root development, healthier roots or any effect on water temperature. We have concluded that the air pump simply can become a vessel for introducing harmful bacteria and pathogens into a closed system.
Remember, we are dealing with aeroponic cloning, which means our cuttings/roots are in midair, therefore absorbing all the oxygen they require. Furthermore, as the system cycles water by being sprayed through the misters and falling back onto itself, creating a cycle which oxygenates the water. Air stones / lines are just another thing to clean and can become a hassle. On your next cloning cycle, eliminate your air line and see for yourself. Results donât lie!
