Second harvest, better yield


#1




Harvested a little early due to hurricane which didn’t hit us,but my heart goes out to the people it did.


#2

How much do you have, fresh cut?


#3

Nice job @Mrcrabs👍
That’s my goal to improve on my grow every year.


#4

Very nice :+1::+1:


#5

About 100grams still wet. My first attempt I got 15 grams dry. I’m new to aquaponics so didn’t want to grow a ilgm seed just yet. This was a bag seed.

@Jmesser80 Have a happy b day. :birthday::birthday:


#7

I’m in the same boat. I have learned a lot on here, but I am not ready to invest just yet.


#8

Thank you @Mrcrabs!


#9

Beautiful green hanging in which to smoke when the day is right


#10

Looks great @Mrcrabs nice job


#11

Is this aquaponics? It looks l;ike DWC.


#12

@latewood Yes, it was my trial and error aquaponics, I was a dwc , it was my second try, but I’m getting better results with dual root zone, without DRZ I got some deficiencies. I would change water every two weeks, so I was the pump., but it works better if you change water weekly.


#13

@latewood, Hopefully after I finish remodeling the grow room, I want to connect my system together. I Didn’t want to invest until I knew It would work for sure. It’s working

so now I can put a system together get a good harvest.


#14

OK. Not sure where we are at but, you do not change out water in
aquaponics. You want to build an aquaculture and allow bacteria and
microbes to flourish.


#15

@latewood Yes, I probably didn’t explain my self , its a prototype, till I can piece it all toghter. The water from this system

which contains about 200 shortfin mollies,which feeds my plants which are in Dual root zone Deep water culture ,not recirculated , just yet, didn’t want to make that big investment if I could get decent yeilds. I my self have changed the water from the 5 gallon buckets every week, which go back to the outside pond and have very little water loss. Which has been working alright. I know if I could set it up all conected this system can be very effective.


#16

My fist attempt didn’t care about the yield , just wanted to see if I could do it.
Second attempt got better yield but had deficiencies , Since I was inspired by @Dumme dual root zone. Where he built his own canvas bags, I attempted to do drz dwc , have been getter results and less deficiencies , still working out the kincks and don’t have the $$$ at the moment to buy liners, make biofilters and all the others expenses that might pop along , this I how I have been doin it. So what do you think @latewood


#17

@latewood hey buddy, in other words, my outside little pond is my hydro shop where I go get my nutrients,then when I’m done with the nutrients I take them back and dump them into a 30 gallon container, Refill my buckets , then refill the pond back with used water form the 30 gallon container. I change the fishes diet according to veg or flower stage. Thanks to @BrayneGro I have food that is high in Nand another high in P&K,

hopes this clears it up a bit. I guess it an aquaponics hybrid,
