"Josh, a well established ap system can generate sufficient amounts of P and K to grow flowering plants.. just for clarity (so when you do grow some ganja) it can be done in ap just fine.. i would still add some bud formula nutes in a dual root zone…"
"they are channel cats. A pipe blew apart and I lost all of the water in my sump tanks and it shorted out my power so the air pump was also shut off. When I replaced that much water it droped the water temp and raised the PH and I think the combined…"
"A good way to raise your PH is with Hydrated Lime and Potassium Hydroxide. Very small quantities of each. I just raised PH from 4.1 to 6.8 with about a half teaspoon of each in a 45 gallon aquarium. Fortunately I don't have fish in that…"
"My ph is 6.4 and i was going to add some pellitzed lime. Anyone have experience with this? Suggestions on how much? Looking it up there is a lot of general info and I was hoping to get advise from the sages.
"Thanks for all the info. I've grown hydroponic plants in the past, thats how I found aquaponics. My system will be welcoming blue nile tilapia this week and I won't be adding any nutes beyond liquid seaweed that I can think of, maybe some…"
"Skretting seems like a better quality feed than Purina's AquaMax (less un-digestable fillers... in addition to the obvious fish benefits that brings, also means less solids to deal with in your system).
Michael, I'm no expert but there are…"
"Hi everyone. Thanks for the words of support (thanks Jim and Rob). I'm on the road right now and there's a bunch I'd like to address, but will (try to) keep it focused to Rob's water quality report (and hydro chart), which gives…"
"interesting BUT I'm teaching in the evening. wish could be there. trying to learn AP.
Can you possibly forward more info on desktop AquaFarm AP system ?
Is a single barrel AP doable at $100 to build including the grow media, test kit,…"
Hi all,There's a festival about water issues at McKinley Park tomorrow night, Thursday, August 21, 5 to 8 pm. I am providing a small informational table on aquaponics, including a desktop AquaFarm AP system. But I won't be able to stay for much of…See More
What's the best way to stay in contact?
Email me with your phone and contact info if you want to be in direct contact.
I can be reached - Michael - email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org and of course 808…"
Mahalo for your current status. It's sad you're not able to farm in the way you want at this time. Remember every closed door opens another new one.
I will stay in touch with you and maybe we can talk story from time to time…"
"To add my 2 cents on the fertilization of the plants:
I have had very good luck with liquid seaweed products (with iron added) to get the plants going strong, and it will not hurt the fish in any way."
"Thanks, Rob! Now, to find out if I can do an Ebb and Flow, from a tank that is higher than the growbed; it seems I'll need a rigid pond liner, to be able to connect the units. I want this setup to be decorative as well as functional.
