Abstract

A portable aeroponic system (SAP), for plant growth (indoor cultivation), is a solution for people who do not have: physical space, technical knowledge and time to deal with plants in a conventional way (soil and substrate). Our device can meet the mentioned public, as well as, provide an additional value proposition: the well-being related to plant cultivation. The equipment development was initiated in PIPE-FAPESP program. However, a few technical advances need to be overcome. (AU)
