Paper presents a new approach to nutrient delivery and control for microgravity plant growth. Nutrients are delivered by aeroponic misting of roots and leakage is prevented by flowing air. Plant germination and growth are explored for several seed holder concepts and found to be sensitive to holder material and configuration… CONTINUE READING
