I'm making an Aeroponic system. I just saw this "Aero-Pot Aeroponics System Review - My new Hydroponics Toy", where rather than using a manifold with sprayers he is using an atomizer to make a vapor or fog. It seems "atomizers" are also marketed as "ultrasonic mist" sprayers in this industry.

What are the pros and cons of an aeroponics system built on atomizers rather than sprayers? Does atomizing water result in distribution of suspended nutrients? Do any larger hydroponics systems use this approach?

Apparently, this is a new thing and it's marketing term is fogponics.

Searching for that term, you'll find a lot of information.
