My question is whether or not it is safe to eat root crops grown in aquaponics. After all they are submerged in fish waste. I have had some people say never to do it, and other people say it…Continue

Can you tell me what type of 4 foot fluorescent bulb you would use for flowering and producing tomatoes? What color light spectrum would it be?
Great seeing you here!
Was looking for some detailed information on the moving bed filter and came across this, thought you would like to see it :)
I am debating aerating my BG's since 10" of it will always be under water, so I am brain storming to get ideas.
Sorry about the late response. My greenhouse is small and I use all natural light. If you try to do commercial with artificial light you will lose money. the market trial is going awesome. People love it. We keep raising our prices and people buy more each week. We're charging pretty high prices now, but because we're not competing with any other hydro. prod.s we kind of have a unique market position.
We do heat our GH during the winter months. It's mostly off of a boiler, so it's not too bad. When we build our large commercial greenhouses they'll run off of outdoor furnaces primarily with backup heat.
Thanks for the comments on the display AJ- I was just looking at your website. Very cool. I grew mushrooms for a while, but being a perpetual renter means that I have never had the chance to get into it in a large-scale way. When I was living in China I toured a lot of mushroom farms in my area. It was amazing- they were using human waste from the sewage ditches to grow something, and all of the farmers were very poor- people who had nothing but access to the ditches- but they managed to carve out a life for themselves. It was one of the coolest things I experienced there.
How long have you guys been around?
