What is Tower Garden Aeroponics?

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.

There couldn't be a better time to become food-independent, besides, you can start at any season, even in the colder months.  If getting healthy is also a priority, no better day than today to set yourself up for year-round space-saving vertical gardening.  The Tower Garden systems let you easily grow your own fresh, nutrient-rich food without soil.  The new Tower Garden HOME is ideal for indoor gardening, while the Tower Garden FLEX is slightly larger and can be used indoors or outdoors. 

How Tower Garden Works

Grow 30% More, 3x Faster, with 98% Less Water


Tower Garden will arrive at your doorstep with seeds, nutrients, supplies—everything you need to get growing. After about 20–25 minutes of minimal setup, here’s how your Tower Garden will function.

1. Plants grow in a soilless medium called rockwool

You’ll start seedlings using the kit we ship with every Tower Garden (unless you decide to buy seedlings). And when your seedlings are ready — usually about 3 weeks after germination — you'll plant them in your indoor or outdoor Tower Garden.

Instead of soil, Tower Garden plants grow in a medium called rockwool, which provides plant roots with oxygen and consistent moisture, encouraging rapid, healthy growth.

2. The reservoir stores the plant nutrient solution

Tower Garden Mineral Blend, our proprietary plant food, powers Tower Garden. Containing the pure earth minerals essential to healthy plant development, the Mineral Blend provides an all-natural “shortcut” for plants, which typically must source nutrients from decomposing organic matter in soil. The result is greater nutrient uptake and superior growth for a range of plants.

You'll fill the reservoir at the base of your Tower Garden with a mixture of Tower Garden Mineral Blend and water.

3. The solution cascades down the Tower Garden, nourishing plants

A low-wattage, submersible pump in the reservoir pushes the nutrient solution to the top of the Tower Garden through a small central pipe. The nutrient solution then drips down the inside of the Tower Garden, evenly cascading over the exposed plant roots.

A timer ensures this process repeats continuously—usually in 15-minute increments—to deliver the ideal amount of oxygen, water and nutrients to plants at the perfect time.

4. In a few weeks, plants are harvest‑ready!

Aside from a few minor maintenance tasks, such as checking water levels and cleaning the pump filter, Tower Garden will take care of itself. And in just a few short weeks, you’ll be enjoying abundant homegrown produce, harvested at its peak (so you can be at yours).
