Are Aeroponic Sprayers versus Hydroponic Drippers I am about to enter the final flowering phase of my first aeroponic grow â€“ which was 4 pots in a 35 gallon tank using sprayers + an air stone. I had â€˜mixed' results â€“ partially due to my nubie incompetence in messing up the nute concentrations and nute burning in the early days and nearly killing a few plants which never really recovered fully. (By contrast, 2 of the plants are monsters and are nearly 4 feet â€“ so tall that they will soon be hitting the overhead HID lights.) For my next grow, I want to build my own system and am debating between 2 different 2 set ups. 1) hydro-aeroponic â€“ same 35 gallon tank, perhaps with 6 (rather than 4) plants, and the air stone + aero sprayers set up inside the tank underneath the netti pots 2) 9 different 5 gallon buckets, which would fit perfectly in my 3 grow tent, each with an individual air stone + small submersible pump + drip tubes that would be positioned in a circle around the plant stem and buried in the medium. The water pump + air pump would be turned on 24/7. Strictly speaking, this is NOT an aeroponic system as there is NO spraying going on â€“ merely a constant drip. (This would be a LOT easier for me.) My question: In terms of maxing out yield in minimum time, is SPRAYING (as opposed to dripping) really any superior to the drip-drip I will get from well arranged drip tubes? The sprayers I am using in my present system, which was custom built by a super-guru of Hydro growing, are merely shooting a little weak stream of water. Further, both the aero spraying system and the drip system with have reservoirs with an air stone running 24/7. So, will the aeroponic-spraying method REALLY significantly add the ultimate yield/weight at harvest â€“ and take fewer weeks to get to harvest??? I personally do not understand how the little stream of water from an aeroponic sprayer will really add to my end yield weight in comparison to a drip drip from a tube feed. But, then again, I am a newbie and nearly massacred half my crop due to nute burn!!
