What are the advantages of choosing aeroponic tower system to grow lettuce?
The lettuce under the aeroponic tower system has a fast growth rate and a short growth cycle.
It usually takes about 5 weeks for lettuce to be harvested from seed. In addition, if we only pick mature external leaves, a new head of lettuce will grow every two weeks. This growth rate is very amazing, which can guarantee us an adequate supply of lettuce.
The green and healthy lettuce under the aeroponic tower system is in line with the pursuit of contemporary people.
Free from the limitation of soil, the aeroponic tower system does not need to be damaged by pests or increase the yield by applying excessive pesticides. The special nutrient solution has provided the internal conditions for the normal growth of crops.In addition to ensuring that there is no pesticide residue in the crops, the quality and appearance of vegetables cultivated by aerosol have been effectively improved. For example, the content of vitamin C can greatly exceed that of soil cultivated vegetables. According to analysis, in addition to delicious taste, the content of vitamin C in vegetables under the aeroponic tower system is more than three times higher than that under ordinary cultivation.
One of the biggest reasons why the aeroponic tower system is recommended for indoor cultivation of lettuce is that it covers a small area. For urban residents, the housing area is never enough, let alone for vegetable planting.The tower system can be used for vertical planting, and the movable pulley is installed at the bottom for easy movement at any time. Such a planting system that is easy to operate and does not occupy space is popular with family growers.
