WATER CULTURE SYSTEM

Water culture is the simplest hydroponics system. The roots of the plant is directly submerged in full volume of water, already pre-mixed with nutrient solutions and adjusted pH levels. In some cases, an air pump will be set inside the water to help oxygenate the water and let the roots breathe.


AQUAPONICS

Aquaponics is a relatively new concept where both fish and plants are grown together in one integrated system. The fish emits waste which contains microbes. Microbes are forms of bacteria which converts the ammonia in the waste into nitrates, a form of nitrogen that plants use to grow. Essentially, fish waste is converted to vermicomost which acts as organic food for the plants. In return, plants would naturally filter out the water back for the fish.
