amazon aeroponic systems
Aeroponics is the ultimate growing method with the biggest yields and fastest growth.
We produced 7ft of growth in 5 weeks in several trials.
My favourite Nutriculture system is the Amazon. I have a soft spot for this system as I grew my first hydroponic plants in this. What I like about this system is that it helps plants grow so fast and it’s incredible to watch.
The Amazon’s mesh pots hang down into the misting chamber where nutrient solution is constantly sprayed around the roots. There’s always a perfect balance of nutrient solution and oxygen around the roots so they achieve optimum nutrient solution uptake and growth is explosive.
Propagate aeroponically in an X-Stream propagator or propagate in a coir pellet, either way just transplant straight to the Amazon with a handful of pebbles.
The Amazon is also the most space efficient grow system at just 38cms tall!
why they are great
Perfect for growers who want to:
- Use less media
- Grow fast-yielding plants in a small space
- Try aeroponics – the ultimate growing method

hints and tips
Pump – leave the pump on 24/7 – the roots need constant access to nutrient solution and oxygen.
Transplanting – Young plants started in 1” rockwool cubes, root riots or jiffy’s can be transplanted into the Amazon.
Like NFT, they must be root bound before they go into the system.
Plants under lights will take up water at a greater rate than they take up nutrient.
Over time the EC of the solution will rise.
Top up the tank with half strength nutrient solution, check EC and add extra nutrient if required.
Then adjust pH level and perform a solution change every 2-3 weeks to maintain the pH and EC balanced.
