No Dirt Planter

The No Dirt Planter is a small planter box that uses the concept of aeroponics. It is designed for long-duration missions to Mars on Orion. It can also be used for experimenting with regolith, as well as growing things in regular Earth soil. The No Dirt Planter contains 4 spheres, 1 hollow hemisphere below each sphere, and a box to store the nutrients. The water will stick to the inside of the hemispheres in microgravity, and the nutrients will spread around and mix in with the water. The lid seals the box and makes sure nothing escapes.
