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..

    Worms do wonders. Organic chemistry like growth hormones etc. They can end up in your grow beds without adding them someway or another. Otherwise its a very good move to add your common composting worms into the grow beds. They eat up old roots and waste and convert it into good stuff for the plants.
