The aeroponics revolution begins!

Earlier this summer, the company GroBox launched a Kickstarter campaign for a small-scale aeroponics growing system called FogBox.  This planter can fit on a desk, bookshelf, or windowsill, and it’s sleek, minimalistic design makes it just about the coolest thing we’ve seen all week. 

For those that don’t know, aeroponics is a growing method where the plant roots are exposed directly to air and misted with a nutrient solution. There is no soil, as used in traditional gardening, and no growing medium, as used in hydroponics.  The FogBox makes a slight adjustment though - rather than misting the roots, fog is used to transport the nutrients.
