Airponics is the cultivation of plants without soil, by suspending them in an oxygen-rich environment and misting their roots with nutrient solution.

The Kantare created an airponics room aboard their stranded ship. It was discovered by Commander Tucker and Subcommander T'Pol when they followed a shadow. In this airponics room, Tucker first met Liana. Later, Liana offered Tucker a fruit from their airponics, the lorella. (ENT: "Oasis")

Kes established an airponics bay on USS Voyager, along with a hydroponics bay. (VOY: "Parallax", "Elogium", "Cold Fire")

In 2372, the yields from Voyager's hydroponics lab were coming out low. (VOY: "Deadlock")

In 2375, Ensign Doug Bronowski worked in Voyager's airponics bay. (VOY: "Someone to Watch Over Me")

The vegetables in the airponics bay were beamed off the ship when Voyager entered the Void in 2377. (VOY: "The Void")
