EZ Clone Commercial System, and In-Depth REVIEW.
If you grow indoors or are pretty serious about your plant propagation, there’s a good bet you have heard of the EZ Clone company. They are the innovators and makers of aeroponic systems that are especially built to suit rooting cuttings, including the new EZ Clone Commercial System. Aeroponics can offer significant boosts in cloning success because of the high level of oxygen that surrounds the stem and newly forming roots.
Tip: Aeroponics systems can supercharge production because the wider surface area of a spray versus a bigger water droplet can pick up more oxygen as it travels through the air. It also provides a very wide surface area for roots to absorb water and dissolved minerals so plants can take up more to develop and yield better.
Most cloning systems, while improving production, can only offer so many sites to stick cut stems for rooting or for planting seeds. For example EZ Clone offers their Classic and Low Pro Models and depending on which one you choose, tire’s options from sixteen to one hundred and twenty eight sites.
In todays rapidly expanding hydroponic marketplace, there’s an increasing number of home growers while at the same time the scale at which commercial producers are doing it is also increasing.
Enter the EZ Clone Commercial system. An aeroponic plant propagation system that boasts 459 sites, spread out over three pullout tiers. This isn’t three of their famous systems stacked onto a shelving cart. The EZ Clone Commercial System is a redesigned and updated aeroponic delivery system quite literally from the ground up.

EZ Clone Commercial System, Key Points of Difference:
No internal reservoir in the cloning chamber (with Classic and Low Pro); each plant cloning chamber drains completely back to a sealed recirculation reservoir (exclusive to EZ Clone Commercial System).
High pressure external pump runs on user adjustable ON/OFF timer cycles (cycle timer included) so Air to Water Ratios can be optimized for different plant types and strains; no internal pump that may overheat the cloning solution.
Recirculation system features both a drain and delivery filter that can be cleaned or replaced; keeping the solution free of debris means less clogging of finer sprayers.
High pressure internal industrial spray heads via delivery manifold; fewer sprayers to maintain that deliver finer mists at high volumes for better and more consistent plant development.
Plug and Play: the entire tiered unit comes with lighting installed, and everything ready to run. Just add water, your favourite cloning products and plug into a single 110/120 Volt outlet and clone up to 459 plants.

EZ Clone Commercial System Review
Not So Much:
Area of Further Interest: This system begs to be used to determine optimal air to water ratios for research purposes on different crop types and strains. The data gained in this high density and highly controllable system could be applied to larger scale hydroponic crop irrigations.
