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.

Hydroponics (water culture)

Hydroponics (water culture) uses lots of water and essential minerals to sustain plant growth. Hydroponic growing requires the roots to be submerged in water or water soaked aggregate, with air bubbled into the mix. While in-vitro (meaning under glass) tissue culture utilizes an agar media to supply the necessary essentials to sustain cell growth.

Aeroponics offers something to plants that hydroponics, to a degree, can't get enough of – and that is air (Oxygen).

Oxygen in the air is what makes all plants live. Plants must have it and have lots of it. Or they become silted and die. Aeroponics is all about air --and lots of it-- especially when air is combined with micro-droplets of water. Add a few trace minerals and macro-nutrients to the water and almost any plant can grow to maturity in air.

Aeroponic systems are favored over other methods of hydroponics because the increased aeration of nutrient solution delivers more oxygen to plant roots, stimulating growth and preventing pathogen formation.
