Does anyone have any experience with growing bell peppers using aquaponics in a greenhouse. theorhetically I should be able to produce all year but I would like to hear some of the successes and problems encountered by other growers. Also does anyone here know how much shiping and packaging bells for local markets cost. Not to mention marketing in these areas.See More

Hi Dexter

I am new to Aquaponics myself. I just completed my greenhouse and am looking for an old bathtub for a fish tank. This will be my "learning center". I am studying and learning all I can about Aquaponics. The rest of my greenhouse is presently soil based/organic gardening.

I see that you are in Columbia.  Do you have any aquaponics going down there?

Welcome Dexter,


Thanks for joining the Aquaponic Gardening community!  I hope you find it a fun place to explore aquaponics.  There is a real blend of experienced and new aquapons in this community, so please don’t hesitate to get in there and start asking questions.  Everyone is quite happy to help out new members – no question is too basic.  


A great place to start is to read the “How to Use This Site” link on the upper right corner, “Start Here” section of the Home page.  You might also find the “Aquaponic Gardening Rules of Thumb” guidelines helpful.


Please add a profile image, participate and check in with us every day!  We are constantly posting news about aquaponics and the good food movement.


Thanks again for joining us, and I look forward to getting to know you.


Sylvia
