The Plants that Can be Grown Through Aquaponics

how-to aquaponicsNowadays, traditional farming is starting to lose ground in favor of new ways of growing plants. Most people have directed their attention towards hydroponic farming which enables them to grow vegetables in their own house or their garage by just using water and some specially designed pots.

The drawback of the hydroponic farming is the fact that you need to use chemical substances to feed the plants to make them grow normally, which has a significant affect on the taste and the quality of the crops.

No Chemicals

With aquaponics this does not happen. Aquaponics relies on the symbiosis between plants and fish. Thus, you can define aquaponics as a mixture of aquaculture and hydroponics, where you get to grow both plants and fish in a perfect interdependence. Because of this, you will never need to use any type of chemical substances, resulting tastier and healthier crops.

Any Plant

The type of vegetables that you are able to grow with the aquaponic system is just about any plant you can think of, except the plants whose fruits grow underground, like potatoes, sweet potatoes, onions, garlic and so on. Fruity vegetables like cucumbers, strawberries, tomatoes, squash, okra, pepper, melon; herbs like basil and oregano; different types of beans and peas as well as green leafy vegetables grow very well in this type of system.

Great Taste

What is even more amazing is the great taste your vegetables and legumes will have. They have a far better taste than the vegetables that you buy from the market because they are all natural, organic, and have no other chemical “improvements”. Your meals will be healthier and tastier!

If you want to obtain great results, make sure you purchase organic seeds, so that you know that your crops will be 100% organic. This way you will enjoy the real taste of freshly harvested vegetables in the comfort of your home. What can be better than that?
