Grow 30% More, 3X Faster,
with 95% Less Water
in 5% of the space.
An advanced form of hydroponics, aeroponics is the process of growing plants in an air or mist environment rather than soil. Aeroponic systems use water, liquid nutrients and a soilless growing medium to quickly and efficiently grow more colorful, tastier, better smelling and incredibly nutritious produce.
This aeroponic growing system is incredibly simple to operate and very low maintenance.
A low wattage submesible pump pushes the nutrient rich water from the bottom reservoir to the top of the tower and as it gets oxygenated, the nutrient rich water drips down on the roots of the plants feeding them exactly what they need to grow faster, bigger and easier.
Tower Garden® aeroponic technology is a patented versatile food production system which can be easily customized for a wide array of business and residential applications.
To start with, seeds are being placed inside a small natural rock-fiber cube for a soilless germination process. When seedlings are ready, we tuck them inside the grow-cavities of the tower, thus allowing the roots of the plants to grow inside the tower.
Tower Garden® is modular in size and can accommodate 52 plants per tower.
The reservoir at the base holds 20 gallons (113.6 L) of water, which we mix with our soluble “Aeroponic Power-Gro®” ionic mineral nutrient solution.
A low wattage submersible pump is placed inside the reservoir ‘to blast’ the nutrient solution through the center of the growing pots, all the way to the top of the tower.
When the nutrient solution reaches the top, it is then funnelled through a special device which makes it drizzle evenly on its ‘cascading journey’ back down to the bottom reservoir. As the liquid mixture is being showered down to feed the roots of the plants, our proprietary mineral solution gets oxygenated through gravity, thus creating unprecedented favorable conditions for nutrient absorption. Aside from using up to 95% less water than other conventional growing methods, vertical farming is space efficient as it can welcome between 250,000 to 500,000 plants per hectare!

Teacher Grows Plants and Minds with a School Tower Garden
Tower Garden also grows something you won’t find on a plant list: excited, engaged students. And with more than 30 lesson plans and learning materials, it’s never been easier for educators to introduce Tower Garden to the class.

GROWS 3X FASTER THAN SOIL-BASED GARDEN
1. Tower Garden can increase yields by an average of 30%.
The University of Mississippi compared product yield of crops grown in aeroponic growing systems and in soil. Researchers found the yields of plants grown with aeroponic technology were more than 30% bigger on average. Here’s the breakdown by crop:
- Basil – 19% increase
- Chard – 8% increase
- Red kale – 65% increase
- Parsley – 21% increase
- Bell pepper – 53% increase
- Cherry tomatoes – 35% increase
- Cucumber – 7% increase
- Squash – 50% increase
On a side note, the study also measured total phenolics, flavonoids and antioxidants in the produce grown. It turns out aeroponic and soil methods yield produce with comparable nutritional value.
2. Plants grow up to 3x more quickly.
3. Tower Garden uses as much as 98% less water.
Traditional agriculture uses approximately 80% of our water. This is a serious problem, especially for western states, where water is already in short supply. The good news? NASA found that aeroponic technology uses up to 98% less water.
4. A vertical design requires 90% less space.
Another known issue with traditional growing methods is that of space. You need a lot of it. And we have less and less of it—in fact, we lose about 3,000 acres of farmland to development daily. But growing vertically requires only 10% of the space traditional farming uses.
5. Pollution and pests are less of a problem.
How much do you really know about your backyard’s history? City soil is often contaminated with heavy metals, asbestos, petrochemicals and other pollutants—a number of which you can’t test for (I don’t know about you, but I don’t really want that stuff seeping into food I ultimately eat). Luckily, Tower Garden is a soilless growing system. So there’s no cause for concern about contaminated dirt.
Worried about pesticides? Thanks to a close-loop system that recycles water and nutrients, Tower Garden plants experience less stress. So they’re healthy enough to naturally resist most pests. Weeds are not an issue, of course, since they need soil to grow.
We are really passionate about tower gardens and organic food in general.
Our bodies deserve the best fresh foods and there is nothing like home grown food.
