In this video Nate explains why growing herbs like chives in your aquaponic system is a no-brainer. Connect with us! twitter.com www.facebook.com plus.google.com Bright Agrotech manufactures vertical growth towers for hydroponic and aquaponic crop production. Our towers can be easily integrated into existing HP or AP systems with minimal fabrication and increase yeilds 2-3 times. (In some cases much more!) We are also currently testing a market display which incorporates the towers directly, allowing consumers to cut live produce! Find out more at: www.brightagrotech.com

    Thankyou for your video. I just removed some baby carrots from my aquaponic system that I was growing for the pets. I now have room and I think I will try some chives. ? Also Thankyou for the tip on planting them close together.

    Regarding the draining system: In our new greenhouse, we keep our fish and towers separate as to make it easier to tend and harvest our crops on the ground. Our towers drain into? a guttering system on the? floor and flow into our sump tank to be recirculated back to our fish tanks. Thanks for your questions! Check out our other videos for more on our sump tanks!

    Hey Timothy! The grow medium we use is actually our patented matrix media we’ve developed from recycled plastic bottles. You can find out more about it at our website (see description). We’ll be going into more details on the media in a? subsequent video. For now, I’ll tell you the media has some massive biological surface area and high percolation (which maximizes performance in aquaponic systems) AND red worms can be integrated in for even greater yields! Did I mention they’re reusable!
