I’ve started a second crop of lettuce in the floating raft setup. The non-aerated side is well underway, and looking great. I’m planting more lettuce and greens in the actual floating side. As for any algae issues, the non-aerated side was perfect, no algae at all. On the floating side, I did have a bit of algae between the rafts where I didn’t have a tight fit. Pushing the rafts closer together and covering the gaps on the edges should resolve that problem. Here’s a link to the fertilizer I use : http://youtu.be/vYv9iu2NI3M Also, I recently talked about building an Aquaponics greenhouse. But before I do that, I need to do a test run so I can work out the kinks and make sure I have a workable system. I finally found 2 good IBC containers and will be using them as my experimental setup.

    What is your thought on chemicals from Styrofoam leeching into the food? I don't believe the foam is food grade? I have used the same foam but decided to stop until I could find evidence they were safe for human consumption? Your thoughts?

    You have convinced me to convert my heavy soil deck planters into these. Maybe even in a greenhouse.

    Do you just use these seasonal? Or year round?

  • Chad Michaels 4 months ago

    Maybe a silly question, but do you have to always have the bubblers in water and always going? My greenhouse setup will be far from a power source. Great setup though if I can make it work

    Hello, How do you manage the nutrient solution? I'm having trouble to know when I have to add just water and when I have to add water plus nutrient solution? Do you usually change the whole mixture? Thanks

    Bobby, where is that video where you measure the boxes length, width, and depth in order to determine the total gallons and then the correct amount of M.B, etc.? Thanks
