This is another interesting application of aeroponics. It is manufactured by Vertigro and represents a great way of saving greenhouse space. The system functions much in the same fashion as the system above except it shares a drain pipe with as many units as required. See the black hoses below growing cylinders. Vertigro is located in Florida near Epcot Center where these photos were taken. 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 the next section of this book You will learn how to build your own hydroponic and aeroponic systems that employ these advanced techniques.
