Commercial Operations List?

Is there a comprehensive list of commercial AP operations out there anywhere? Other than the AP association list, I have not found one... Maybe we can get one going if not? Cheers!See More

Sylvia, thanks for the welcome and for starting this up. It should be a great forum for exchange! I will get some pics up shortly. I have some of last year but had a catastrophe in early winter that caused me to hit the "reset" button and have to replant. I have also made some changes to the system since then. Since it is sunny out today I may go and snag some shots.

There is a real blend of experienced and new aquapons in this community, so please don’t hesitate to join in. Always thrilled to have experienced growers join us - please post some photos of your system!

We have just one rule - keep it cordial (no flaming!).
