AeroponX uses a process of growing plants in an air or mist environment (aeroponics). AeroponX is unlike geoponics, which uses soil; hydroponics, which uses a liquid nutrient solution; or aquaponics which uses water and fish waste.
In a basic AeroponX system, the leaves extend above the plant support structure, exposed to LED lighting. The roots of the plant extend below into a computerized chamber that delivers nutrient mists according to the needs of the plant, growth algorithms, & the desired cultivation.
The result is more crop cycles with less water, more nutrients, consistent pricing, cultivated for unique tastes & colors.
AeroponX participates in MIT's open agriculture program.
Microgreens are tiny vegetables and herbs that are harvested at their maximum nutrient density, during formation of the first ‘true leaves’ of the plant. In 2012, a study published at the University of Maryland concluded that microgreens contain between 4 and 40 times the nutrient density of their full grown relatives. A tablespoon of raw microgreens equals a full serving of vegetables.
In addition to their superfood properties, microgreens pack tremendous fresh flavor into a small bite. Sunflower shoots are crisp, crunchy, and taste similar to roasted sunflower seeds. Micro cilantro combines the flavor of coriander with fresh herbal cilantro. Radish, arugula, and mustard microgreens make up our ‘Spicy Mix’, with notes of horseradish, wasabi, and pepper - excellent on tacos, salads, sandwiches, fish, and by itself! Of course, microgreens are beautiful as a garnish on any dish.
