I have a small indoor aquaponic system for about 6 months now. I am having trouble getting green peppers and tomatoes to start. The plants look great but no vegetables/fruit. Basil looks good, some lettuce, but no green pepper or tomatoes. What am I doing wrong?
2 grow beds - soon to be 3
180 gallon fish tank
32 tilapia fish of various sizes
Nitrates: 0 ppm
Fan: on for about 1 hour a day - also shake the plants every few days.
Add iron: 1/2 to 1 tsp every 2 weeks.
thanks for your help.
that is the problem - no fruit at all. I added a small orange and I will add a banana. I have the grow beds filled with clay pebbles and have marble rock in my sump tank to help stabilize the PH. so not having enough potassium is a possible cause. I ordered liquid potassium and have increased my feed. I am getting a 24 feeder to feed the fish at lunch time. so this will increase the feeding to 3 times a day.
Thanks for all the help. I have to wait a few more weeks to see if this is helping or not.
