Added by on 2016-07-25 What Plants Can Be Grown in an Aquaponic System Nowadays traditional farming is starting to lose ground in favor of the new ways of growing plants.

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. What will amaze you even more is the great taste your veggies and legumes will have. You will not believe that something so good can be grown in your garage or in your […]
