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 Seed Germination

By 1985, GTi introduced second generation aeroponics hardware, known by as the 'Genesis Growing System'.

This second generation aeroponic apparatus was a closed-looped system. It utilized recycled effluent precisely controlled by a microprocessor. Aeroponic graduated to the capability of supporting seed germination, thus making GTi's the world's first plant and harvest aeroponic system.

Many of these open-loop unit and closed-loop aeroponic systems are still in operation today.
In a true aeroponic apparatus, the plant is totally suspended in air, giving the plant access to 100% of the available oxygen in the air. This maximizes the level of oxygen surrounding the stem and root system, accelerating and promoting root growth within the plant. While there is a constant available source of oxygen, the intermittent hydro-atomizing of a spray/mist of the water-nutrient solution provides the necessary moisture and essential minerals to keep plants turgid and alive.
