I also want the fuzzies, you can probably see my sprayers are more like jets than a mist. My shop does two types, although I have tried both and get very similar results. I just feel the other ones are more gentle.

Its hard to tell for sure, but it looks like you may have some fuzzies on the left front plant at the top.

From all my reading, and my limited experience so far, you really need super fine droplets - in the 50 micron size range - to get fuzzy roots. You need to be closer to fog than spray. That means hi-pressure sprayers, and all the other crap that goes with a hi-pressure system. It also helps to be a tinkerer who likes to fiddle with stuff, and gets off on the tech side of growing. I think you might like that as much as I do :slight_smile:

LP is much simpler, cheaper and easier to do than HP, but HP is more fun :slight_smile:

Not the best pictures. I’ll see if I can lift them out of the solution later when the lights switch on :+1:

Looking at that picture makes me wonder about a question I had as a kid - where does all the dirt go to make room for the roots?? Is it just compacted by the roots or does it all get converted to plant material?

I havent posted any root porn in a while, so here you go.

Im running a single plant from seed in a 48 gallon root chamber in a hi-pressure aeroponic setup. The chamber is two fabric pots stitched together to form a chamber 24" in diameter x about 26" tall. I figure the roots are now taking up somewhere around 30 gallons of that space. Its so full, I can no longer get decent pics of the entire root mass, so here is the best I can do for now.

Thats a 3" net pot the C99 plant is in. And, yes, the roots are growing on the ceiling of the chamber and behind some duct tape. You can see a new tap root heading up into the duct tape. The brown parts actually look off white to the eye, but there is too much contrast to the fuzzy white roots, so the flash makes it look brown.
