The Many Advantages Of Aquaponics
I have heard all of what is said about aquaponics, both good and bad. In my option, however, the advantages of it greatly outweigh the disadvantages. Here are some of the positive things about aquaponics gardening.
Using aquaponics helps to reduce water usage. I believe I once read an article that said water usage is reduced by as much as 90 percent. Though I cannot be sure if that exact number is true, I can tell you from experience that it truly does decrease usage of water.
Plants tend to grow faster when aquaponics are used and vegetables are much bigger and healthier. I have a garden with both plants and veggies and the time of size of them stunned me.
When you use aquaponics, there is no need to fertilizer. I know that some planters and gardeners add it as necessary, but believe me, there really is no need for it.
Aquaponics make plants and veggies organic. Though I am not sure if I buy into the whole organic thing, those who are will be happy to know this.
As you can see, aquaponics is more beneficial than harmful. I would highly recommend anyone thinking about giving it a try to do so.
