The aeros is a Deep Water Culture (DWC) system that is also known as a bubbler system. These are very popular hydroponic systems that require very little growing media. However, it does require a lot of nutrient/water solution. The aeros is available in 1 plant or 2 plant options and also a 4 plant recirculating option. The plant is supported in a net pot filled with a growing media such as Clay Pebbles and the roots are submerged in a highly oxygenated nutrient/water solution. The aeros includes an air pump and submersible airstone(s) to provide a large amount of oxygen to the roots of the plant and this results in rapid growth.
The bubbles produced by the airstone keep the nutrient/water solution constantly moving and oxygen-rich and so the roots stay healthy. It is important to monitor the EC and pH levels closely with this system in order to gain optimum results. This is easy-to-do by simply removing the inspection port cover and taking a pH/EC reading. Full instructions are supplied. The aeros IV includes 4 aeros modules and a separate nutrient solution master tank with a level indicator. The nutrient solution is recirculated around the whole system with a high-quality pump to ensure that each plant receives the correct amount of solution. The two twin outlet air pumps and a submersible airstone in each pot provides a large amount of oxygen to the roots of the plant resulting in rapid growth.
