Peeponics in Georgia, Ecosan Urine Fertilizer in India, Urine Therapy Elsewhere

From around the world we are learning more and more how others are creating their own models of sustainability. Hydroponics would benefit tremendously to have a homemade source of fertlizer. The notion of organic can actually be elevated to a second generation, requiring that food consumed by the source of the urine was also organic. … Continue reading

Bioponics: Looking back to see forward

We have much to learn from peoples of “underdeveloped” countries around the world. In remote farming villages of China, fish ponds are managed with great efficiency, entirely eliminating the costs and complications seen with industrialized aquaculture. That is happening because their traditional utilizes a process of “nutrient cycling”. To fertilize their ponds and raise lots of fish, Asian villagers plant … Continue reading

Smart invention helps growers save money on seeds. A home made vacuum seeder. For in ground or bioponics.

Any grow operation will benefit from home made tools that reduce unnecessary labor. Spend more time doing higher value projects and make seeding simple by building a vacuum seeder from vacuum cleaner and easily aquired materials. If a similar contraption were built for seeding microgreens, space use could be optimized, considerably saving on the cost … Continue reading

Potassium from Organic Wood Ash and BioChar vs. Inorganic Sources; A Hydroponic and Aquaponic Growth Media Supplement

The application of wood ash to soil has been a commercial farming practice since 1790 with the first patent of a potassium soil supplement from burnt trees. Also known as potassium ash or potash, the potassium carbonate molecule remains very important as one of the three primary macro elements in synthetic fertilizers, recognized as NPK … Continue reading

Day 4 and 5: Wheat Grass Growth 1″ Aquaponic Ebb Flow

Considerable growth seen on Day 4. The question I’m considering is whether or not the germination rate is optimized? Are some seeds inclined to germinate slower?  It is possible that the sauration or drying period between saturation points is not entirely consistent. On a second test the tray will be set deeper into the rock bed, so water flows to 1/2 … Continue reading

Day 3 Growing Wheatgrass with Aquaponic Ebb and Flow

It’s a fast start, seeds germinated in a day. No lid on top of this tray but water is pumping on average 15 minutes each hour; enough to keep wet between cycles, especially with the humidity we’ve had in ATL this month. I’ve tested growing micro greens and wheat grass using trays that just barely … Continue reading
