Hydroponic Plants and Aeroponic Plants: Plantscape without Soil

Landscape is for exteriors and plantscape works for exterior-interiors- blended spaces of exterior and interiors. The phenomena which has been incorporated in interiors for carbon absorption is ‘Hydroponic plants’ and ‘Aeroponic plants’. Plant scape can enrich and change the ambience of space. This is done through a system without growing them in soil. Through a carefully designed system of ducts we can actually grow plants on a false ceiling. It helps in air purification in co-working spaces or office spaces enriching the indoor air quality.

Hydroponic Plants

Hydroponics is a type of horticulture and a subset of hydroculture, which is a method of growing plants, usually crops, without soil, by using mineral nutrient solutions in an aqueous solventTerrestrial plants may be grown with only their roots exposed to the nutritious liquid, or, in addition, the roots may be physically supported by an inert medium such as perlitegravel, or other substrates.

Aeroponic Plants

Aeroponic systems nourish plants with nothing more than nutrient-laden mist. The concept builds off that of hydroponic systems, in which the roots are held in a soilless growing medium, such as coco coir, over which nutrient-laden water is periodically pumped. Aeroponics simply dispenses with the growing medium, leaving the roots to dangle in the air, where they are periodically puffed by specially-designed misting devices.
