How to build a basic Aquaponics System. Aquaponics Greenhouse Tour. Aquaponics. Aquaculture is the symbiotic cultivation of plants and aquatic animals in a re-circulating system. Growing Power uses Tilapia and Yellow Perch to fertilize a variety of crops and herbs using aquaponics. Aquaponics is the method of growing crops and fish together in a re-circulating system. In the Growing Power aquaponics model crops grow vertically on raised beds. Types of fish we grow: Yellow Perch Yellow Perch is a species of perch found in the United States and Canada and is a glacial lakes species.

Yellow Perch are also in short supply. What does Perch eat? Tilapia Originally found in Africa, Tilapia has been farmed for more than 2,500 years. What does Tilapia eat? Why do we use compost in our system? We fill our growing pots with a mixture of coir and compost. Interested in learning more? DIY Aeroponics. Hydroponics Growing Systems Explained One by One. Each of the hydroponics growing systems has its own way of supporting the plants. Plants require food, water, and oxygen for the roots to keep them from drowning. You can scroll down the page to see how each system works one by one, or you can use the menu below to jump to any system. The main types of hydroponics growing systems are... Hand Watering People often do not realize that hand watering can be one of the simplest hydroponics growing systems, but hydroponics boils down to this...the food is in the water.

If you mix perlite, vermiculite, and coconut coir (all nutrient free) and use this to grow your plants in a container garden, you will HAVE TO include some plant food in the water when you hand water. Coconut coir and vermiculite retain quite a bit of water. Because of its simplicity, this is obviously an easy home method. Deep Water Culture (DWC) The deep water culture method, also known as the reservoir method, is one of the easiest of all the true hydroponics growing systems.

View topic - Basic Hydroponic Systems. Basic Hydroponic SystemsUnknown Author Numerous different types of hydroponic systems are suitable for mj cultivation. Choosing your "best" system will depend on your individual growing environment and expectations.

Some types are better for growing large plants, as in a closet grow, while others are best suited to growing smaller plants, like those in a ScrOG (Screen Of Green) or stealth environment. For example, you probably would not consider NFT (Nutrient Film Technique) if you intended to grow your plants to six feet in height, since the NFT system is designed primarily for smaller root system crops, and the table will tend to reduce the height available for plant growth. To grow a larger plant, you would likely be interested in a Bubbler or Pot type Ebb & Flow. Hydroponics offers you a vast opportunity for creativity. So take your time and give some more thought to your garden.
