cloning (rooting) chamber

I've been taking cuttings this spring from anything I can get my hands on. I'm curious about building an aeroponic cloning chamber as a way to improve my results, or at least speed them up.

My question: what are the pros/cons of using an air pump based system (fish tank aerator) as opposed to using a true sprayer system? I've seen plans for both.

Any tips are appreciated. And no, not planning on cloning anything one would ingest... unless you count bee balm or mint.

RE: cloning (rooting) chamber

If you use a mist sprayer it's not necessary to have an enclosed chamber, in fact it would probably be counterproductive as you need to maintain good air circulation. I prefer the sprayer as you get too many mold problems in enclosed areas. Good luck - Ian.
