1. The Practical Aquaponics discussion forum has been in operation for the last 5 years...

    We have enjoyed giving this service free of charge however ongoing increasing financial costs of running this service is making it increasingly difficult. Up until now we have resisted advertising as a means of a revenue stream to help run this forum but it has become inevitable that extra revenue is required to run this forum.

    We have introduced a donate button to help offset the cost of running this forum. It is completely voluntary, but if you would like to donate, all donations would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks Murray..

    Hi there guys, need some help here. Can anyone tell me what's wrong with my bokchoy?
    Previously the leaves are turning green, I've added chelated iron, fixed that and now it's wrapping up. These are 2 weeks old from seed. PH is around 6.3 to 6.4.

    Pretty short on most trace elements by the looks of it.....Seaweed extract is the way to go.

    Hello, My understanding of AP growers is that we are growing Organic veggies without the use artifical fertilizer. When supplement is added to the system, is it still considered organic?
