The zeoponic materials developed by NASA and manufactured by ZeoponiX are a combination of a nutrient charged zeolite (that is a natural zeolite in which the ion exchange sites have
been loaded with selected nutrient cations) and slowly dissolving substances that contain a specific nutrient anion (phosphorus) and additional nutrient cations. The charged zeolite interacts in the plant
rhizosphere with the slowly dissolving substances to provide nutrients in a slow release fashion through a combination of ion exchange and chemical dissolution reactions. The result is a growth medium/specialty
fertilizer that when added to any other media will result in improved plant performance.
