It can also be created artificially with Aerosol spray aerosol canisters if the humidity conditions are right. The only difference between mist and fog is visibility. ref http cloudsrus mistnfog.html ref This phenomenon is called fog if the visibility is one kilometre 1,100 yards or less in the UK for driving purposes the definition of fog is visibility less than 200 metres, for pilots the distance is 1 kilometre .

  1. Fogger

    A fogger is any device that creates a fog , typically containing an insecticide for killing insect s and other arthropod s. Foggers are often used by consumers as a low cost alternative to professional pest control services. The number of foggers needed for pest control depends on the size of the space to be treated, as stated for safety reasons on the instructions supplied with the devices. The fog may contain flammable gases, leading to a danger of explosion if a fogger is used in a building with a pilot light or other naked flame. ref cite web url http story.lasso?ewcd cdb17663ab78fb18 title Bug foggers cause house explosion first Scott E. last Williams publisher The Daily News Galveston County date 2008 01 22 ref Foggers are also used in aeroponics , a branch of modern agriculture . Fogger composition Total release foggers TRFs also called bug bombs are used to kill cockroaches, fleas, and flying insects by filling an area with insecticide. Most foggers contain pyrethroid , pyrethrin , or both as active ingredients. Pyrethroids are a class of synthetic insecticides that are chemically similar to natural pyrethrins and have low potential for systemic toxicity in mammals. Pyrethrins are insecticides derived from chrysanthemum flowers pyrethrum . Piperonyl butoxide and n octyl bicycloheptene dicarboximide often are added to pyrethrin products to inhibit insects microsomal enzymes that detoxify pyrethrins. To distribute their insecticide, foggers also contain aerosol propellant s. ref name mmwr cite journal title Illnesses and Injuries Related to Total Release Foggers journal Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report volume 57 issue 41 pages 1125 1129 publisher Centers for Disease Control and Prevention location Atlanta, GA date October 17, 2008 url http mmwr preview mmwrhtml mm5741a3.htm accessdate November 12, 2008 pmid 18923383 author1 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention CDC ref Hazards to humans During 2001 2006, a tota ...   more details

The Tower Garden stores the mineral nutrient solution inside its 25 gallon reservoir base and pushes it up the tower by means of a small pump. The mineral solution feeds the plant roots which extend into in the open central corridor of the appliance and hang exposed to the solution there and returns excess solution to the tower s reservoir base. This circulation creates a highly oxygenated growing environment for the plants. The system uses less water and less horizontal space than traditional farming while recycling nutrients to minimize waste. ref cite news author Lucie Young url http foodanddrink ...   more details

  1. Growroom

    A growroom or grow room is a room of any size where plants are grown under controlled conditions. The reasons for utilizing a growroom are countless. Some seek to avoid the criminal repercussions of growing illicit cultivar s, while others simply have no alternative to indoor growing. Plants can be grown with the use of artificial light, sunlight , or a combination of the two. Due to the heat generated by high Electric power power lamps, grow rooms will often become excessively hot relative to the temperature range ideal for plant growth, often necessitating the use of a supplemental ventilation fan implement fan . Growing methods The plants in a growroom can be grown in soil , or without soil via means such as hydroponic s, and aeroponics . Not only is growing in a soiless medium more cost effective, sometimes one also gets a much higher yield, as well as faster fruit maturation. Citation needed date May 2009 Soiless mixes usually carry 0 nutrients so the gardener can utilize the perfect combination of nutrients for the crop. Vermiculite , perlite , coconut husk and rockwool are the most popular mixes for indoor cultivation. Citation needed date May 2009 Lighting The three most common varieties of lighting for indoor growing are High intensity discharge lamp s the most prevalent for this application being high pressure sodium for flowering and metal halide for growing , Compact fluorescent lamp s, and traditional Fluorescent lamp s. Incandescent and halogen lamps generate excessive heat per watt, with a low lumen to watt ratio. LED lights are becoming more popular for growrooms due to their low energy requirements and low heat output. Recent advances such as automotive grade 6 watt LEDs have entered the LED grow light market. Luminous efficacy High Intensity discharge lamps HID have the most Luminous efficacy efficacy in terms of Lumen unit s of light output vs. Electric power power input.
