Question by : fertilizers in aquaponics?
An aquaponic system utilizes nitrogen from fish waste to feed plants. When looking at a normal fertilizer for plant growth there are 3 chemicals that are typically listed; nitrogen, phosphorous, and potassium.
Is there any way to raise the phosphorous and potassium in the system without harming the fish?
Can you add blood/bone meal (or anything else) to the grow bed, or will it result in a poisonous environment for the fish?
What do you think? Answer below!
