This is another interesting application of aeroponics. It was invented by Vertigro and represents a great way of saving greenhouse space. The system functions much in the same fashion as an aeroponic system except it shares a drain pipe with as many units as required. See the black hoses below growing cylinders. Vertigro provided the systems pictured here for Disney's Epcot Center in Florida. As you can see, hydroponic system design represents equal opportunity for a challenge and progress. If you can master the basic skills of plumbing, which can be picked up best by DOING, you can have lots of fun experimenting and improving upon the hydroponic systems in use today. In a later section of this book you will learn how to build your own hydroponic and aeroponic systems that employ these advanced techniques.
