Your produce tastes FANTASTIC! Now I've grown all sorts of vegetables and plants in soil, but was astounded at the fresh full flavoured vegetables I could grow with this system.

The location of your fish tank or pond if outdoors is vital because if its placed wrong then you could get an algae attack. It is best to keep your fish out of direct sunlight because this is the cause of the algae.

Growing plants in the ground is the way we have been doing it since farming was discovered thousands of years ago. But growing plants in the soil is really not an efficient way to do it. Working soil takes a lot of energy and work. Watering and fertilizer are dumped onto the ground for the plants roots to absorb a small percentage of it. Then there are weeds and other pests to deal with like slugs snails and gophers.

Tubing for water flow, the type of tubing you get will depend on what system you end up building. Some different types of fish aquaponics systems work better with different tubing.

A filter, this is needed to take the solids out of the water before it reaches your crops. It is essential that this is done because if the solid waste reaches the grow beds it will fester and start to smell bad.

Water comes into the system and will flow through when all of the nutrients are absorbed by plants. Most of the plants that grow with excess of water are grown in this system but you just need to see to it that you have installed the entire system properly and there must be a good recycling system that will filter and recycle water very properly between the two components.

Many garden plants really do not need soil and will grow just fine without it. As long as the roots get plenty of water, nutrients and in some cases oxygen, they can grow very well. Hydroponics is a way to grow plants without soil. Bu typically, hydroponics uses chemical fertilizers and tries to create a sterile growing environment. The results are often vegetables that are low in flavor, or have a chemical flavor, and it can be a lot of work keeping the nutrient levels just right in the water.
