Adoni what are you trying to achieve? Put six patchoi in the half oil container. Put three in the buckets. They will grow straighter and taste better as the leaves catches less sunlight. Are you using manure in your soil mix? What were some of the issues you had before?

You are on with the red buckets. If those are lettuce in the 4" PVC pipe, the pipes can be as close as 12".

And for your health sake, move the plants away from that tail pipe as you will eat some smog ...........

Cool mon, will try putting closer to achieve them growing straighter. Yes, I did notice some closer together were really greener. I am using coco peat and sharp sand mixture. I was using the Blaukorn formula from the Ministry of Food Production website. Change up to a NPK fertilizer from Carlsen Chemicals. Working on getting some more pipes.

Home gardening bro? Put more Patchoi in the containers. What were some of the problems?

If that is lettuce, it is Okay as they need more space. The 4" PVC pipe can be closer for lettuce at 12" vertically.

Do not have your tailpipe emitting smog on your plants ........... Health first bro.

bronze usually takes about 4 weeks from about 3 inch seedlings. the small size could be insufficient watering and nutrients.... the bad leaves below are normal but you need to check if there are spots or any squiggly lines...

spots are a fungus and can be treated with a weekly or bi weekly spraying of serenade or bellis.. whatever the bottle recommends

squiggly lines are caused by stink bugs ( aphids) and a pesticide should be used. neem x is a bio pesticide while trebon could also be used. keep in mind the pre harvest interval before spraying

before planting, a fungicide and pesticide should be sprayed as the fungus comes from the soil. make sure your surroundings are clear of tall grass and weeds as they attract bugs (aphids etc.)

my bronze at 4 1/2 to 5 weeks are approx 10 - 12 inches in width with about 5 layers of leaves... will post pics later if u need.

call me 2983606. i also grow bronze

What brand of seeds are you planting? In your aquaponic system the way the plant get its nutrient and grow is slightly different from bronze grown in the soil. What variety of fish are you growing? If you interested PM me so I can direct you to an aquaponic operation.

Also subscribe to friendly aquaponics of Hawaii as they have great resources and newsletters on Aquaponics .........

Update...I was telling NOS Specialist that I was experimenting in ornamental plants as well.I planted a few Chrysanthemums to grow from cuttings.Lovely root growth.The only issue I have found is that I needed to add a bit of phosphorus when I transferred them to dirt in flowerpots

Does anyone know where I can get good quality gravel for my aquaponic grow bed? I live in the east and got some but too much sharp sand in between.

Hydroponics offer a lot of advantages. Of the six types, NFT in Trinidad appears to be one of the more popular ones. If you are interested, advise and I can guide you. Been Busy at work so my NFT system is parked up.

The plumbing, maintenance, supply houses, algae control, heat mitigation, shade house, marketing, etc.

Need to get off my A@se and get the thing going. I do not buy patchoi, because I am not sure about water quality. When I have, I cook it with as much variety as I can think of. I sure as hell feel healthier.

Hey folks,

Might seem like a dumb question but, is this safe to ship via air freight?

Will I find this locally? Or even a good alternative..

Thanks

Thanks. I keep hearing and reading about them. Think I'll give them a visit soon..

For starters I'm gonna try out some jar hydroponics. Simple seasonings for now. Where I live, pests are a problem and I want to avoid using pesticides.

My aim is to eliminate the use of dirt to see if the pest problem persists.
