I am going to set up a series of wicking beds fed a constant flow of water from my fish pond.
Will the plants pull nutrients from the water wicking up from the reservoirs in the beds or do I need to water on top through the media down to a drain?
I am hoping to be able to set up the beds, actually boxes so I can pull a box from the system and replant throughout the season. If the plants will draw nutrients from the water reservoir then I can just set up a simple constantly flowing system, pumping water to the boxes, to a sump then back to the fish pond.
Thanks for your imput. Paul.
I am on many forums, aquaponic, gardening and whtever. I thought I had read posts on this forum concerning wicking beds, that is why i posted here.
I do know the earthan group has an aquaponic system in a retirement home that uses wicking beds and deep water culture.
Here is a youtube of the system:
