Frequently asked questions
WHAT IS AQUAPONICS AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
Aquaponics is an amalgamation of Aquaculture & Hydroponics.
WHAT KIND OF PLANTS CAN I GROW IN AN AQUAPONICS SYSTEM?
n our experience, an appropriately designed system can grow just about anything you could want. Usually the determining factor of what is grown is guided by economics and space. Leafy green vegetables, vine plants, Berries, fruit trees, flowers and fodder all grow exceedingly well in aquaponics, and in most cases the growth rates are substantially higher than conventionally grown plants. We have even successfully grown likes of ginger, turmeric, and carrots, all out producing the control crops planted in rich organic soil.
WHAT IS HYDROPONICS.
Hydroponics is a method of growing plants without the use of soil. The plant roots are suspended in sand, gravel, water, coco peat, rock wool, or clay pellets (just to name a few), and nutrients are applied directly to the water that in direct contact with the roots . Any water that is not absorbed by the roots is recycled through the system to be absorbed later, or flushed away in a run to waist system.
IS GROWING HYDROPONICALLY OR AQUAPONICALLY EASY?
There are a number of different hydroponic and Aquaponic methods, each with varying degrees of difficulty, from very easy to more advanced.
