Aeroponic or Ebb and flow?

Simple question. What do you think works better?

Ebb and FLow


But I would choose DWC over either one.

ebb and flow; though i would agree with hawks, DWC over either just make sure you can control your room temp.

Or reservoir temp if that's what your going for.  Also remember the larger the reservoir you have the more stable your pH is going to stay and the less your going to have to top off to maintain PPM.  When I was doing DWC I used a 6 bucket recirculating system that had a 50 gallon reservoir backing it up.  The more the merrier!!

I'm planning on combining the two.:yesnod:

I'm going to do this by flooding the lower root zones and fogging the upper root zones.

No clue which is better, but have read good things about mixing the two.

pulled from another site....

When combined with the gentle stream of fresh air that carries the fog along, upper plant roots (a.k.a. "air roots") receive the complete benefits of having unlimited access to water, nutrition and Oxygen.
When combined with existing flood and drain (ebb&flo), sprayer type aeroponics, or even certain types of drip systems which are designed to provide the bulk of nutrient solution required during production, the result is a superior, multi-layer root system that is unequivocally capable of capturing everything needed for the plants above to thrive as nature intended. The road to faster production of healthier crops and heavier harvests starts here.

Hydroponic fogging promotes the growth of miniscule root hairs which exponentially increase the overall root surface area and ability to uptake water, nutrients and exchange gases.
Hydroponic production of plants using fog can reduce the use of water and nutrients by up to 50%.
With roots suspended virtually midair, the need for bulky and costly growing mediums is removed.
