I am trying to do an experiment to measure nutrient absorbtion and its relation to droplet size in ultrasonic fogponic systems. Fogponics has, in my opinion, more potential than aeroponics, but it has proven tricky to get right. There is a lot of noise on the internet regarding ultrasonic fogponics. Some people have made it work really good, others have had problems. Some say the problems are caused by the droplet size being too small to carry nutrients. In my opinion, the real reason seems more related to fog density and airflow.
I was thinking in making an experiment in where we weight a known amount of water and nutrients. We use an ultrasonic fogger to create the fog, and send it with a fan through a chilled tube. The collected liquid solution will be weighted and then boiled to get rid of the water. The solute will be weighted to find out the solute percentage and compare it with the pre fogged solution. I am going to use the water soluble miracle gro solution.
Do you think it should work?
