AERO™ Aeroponic Culture Systems

Please note that ALIEN® AERO™ systems are not yet stocked in North America; they are expected in early 2024. The V-SYSTEM ultimate recirculating deep water culture system is available. If you have interest in the AERO systems, please contact us here for more information.

Control. Power. Simplicity. The ALIEN AERO system is everything you need to grow aeroponically (air culture) in a flexible and scalable modular system. Powered by a virtually silent RAIN™ pump, growers can finely tune the time and duration of their feeds to grow monster plants. Drain-to-waste or recirculating configurations are both possible with the standard AERO kits, which come with your choice of two pot sizes.

The AERO free-root system maximises nutrient delivery to grow high-yielding plants. Because the plant roots are suspended in the air and not embedded in any medium, harvesting and crop rotation can be done much faster. The net pots in which the plants sit incorporate a raised grid at the pots' base to prevent oversaturation of the minimal supportive growing medium, preventing common issues such as root rot and damping off.

Incredibly water efficient, our closed-loop aeroponics system enables faster growth and reduced costs, while using up to 95% less water than plants grown in soil.

Growing aeroponically has never been as easy or flexible!

AERO system features

The patent-pending Dual-Flow™ fittings are an oversized 2" / 50mm for a more free-flowing system. Slots located on the sides of the fitting allow water to pass through and enable total drainage of the pot so roots are never sitting in water.


Heat-reflective silver 2" / 50mm pipe for better flow and less heat introduction.

Copper-plated drain covers deter the roots from entering the pipework.


The 8 gallon / 30L or 4 gallon / 15L pots and lids are made from heat-reflective silver polymer. This helps keep nutrient solution temperatures cooler and relieves the water chiller from working as hard.

Pots have a raised drainage grid and sloped base to allow complete drainage.

Layout / Configuration Options

All ALIEN North America AERO kits come with enough pipe to have the header pot 39" / 100cm from the growing pots, making it easy to place the header outside of a grow tent. All 3- and 4-row kits provide enough pipe to create a 39" / 100cm aisle in the middle of rows for easy plant access.

15L AERO kits allow placement of pots on 14" to 24" (35cm - 60cm) plant centers.

30L AERO kits allow placement of pots on 18" to 30" (45cm - 75cm) plant centers.
