For saving space and soil, this method also has several
other benefits, including no soil-borne diseases, no
weeds to pull and no soil to till, run-of-the-mill side
benefits of soil-less gardening.

Aeroponic Propagation (Cloning)

For the first time in agricultural history, greenhouse growers could propagate and grow inside a self-contained aeroponic system.

GTi's apparatus cut-away of vegetative cutting propagated aeroponically, achieved 1983

Numerous plant species could now be started by vegetative cuttings. It gave growers an opportunity to clone all types of plants, trees, shrubs, cacti, and ground covers from a simple stem cutting.

Suddenly aeroponics surpassed hydroponics and tissue culture as means for sterile propagation of plant species. With the Genesis Machine any grower could clone plants, plants that were traditionally considered hard to root. Plants could be cloned and grown using aeroponics by the hundreds or even thousands. Cloning became easy because the aeroponic apparatus initiated faster and cleaner root development. And it cloned them fast, according to Colorado State University (Hughes, 1983).
