Aquaponics is a combination of aquaculture, which is growing fish and other aquatic animals, and hydroponics which is growing plants without soil. Aquaponics uses these two methods in a symbiotic ecosystem in which plants are fed the waste. In return, the plants clean the water that circulates back to the fish. Microbes play an important role in the nutrition of the plants. These beneficial bacteria gather in the spaces between the roots of the plant and convert the fish waste into nutrients the plants can use to grow!

 

The Aquasprouts garden brings the revolutionary principles of aquaponic farming into the home, office, and classroom, because we believe aquaponics offers something to benefit everyone. By combining fishkeeping and hydroponic gardening, this aquaponics kit does things that neither can do alone, dramatically reducing waste and maintenance. It circulates the water from your aquarium through the garden bed, and recycles fish waste to provide vital nutrients for growing plants which leaves the water clean and clear without the need for additional filters or frequent water changes. The garden’s design is simple, freestanding, and virtually maintenance-free, making indoor gardening and a beautiful aquarium accessible to anyone regardless of experience with fish or plants.

 

It eliminates the need for traditional fertilisers using the same principles that recycle wastes in na
