This book is intended as a starting point for creating a backyard aquaponic system. This book outlines how aquaponics works and the nature of the symbiosis between the elements. It also includes a brief overview of the different types of aquaponics systems, and trouble-shoots some common problems faced by home growers. This book is really good for beginners so that they would become an expert of aquaponics!
This is a two book (each small) set. It is well-written and has some nice graphics to explain different set-ups of each of the two soilless gardening techniques that the books cover.In the hydroponics book, the author does a decent job of describing how to build a couple of different growing systems. However, in the aquaponics book you are left on your own if you want to DIY. Still, the author provides great tips about how to succeed with an aquaponics system (such as needing to let bacteria grow in the water before adding the fish – that was new to me!). And he also explains each system in reasonable detail, as well as the benefits for both kinds of systems.If you want to get started on the basics of either aquaponics or hydroponics (or both!) – assuming you’re not looking for a step-by-step guide to a homemade aqua. system – this book will help.
The idea of aquaponics is fasinating. Growing fish and soil-free plants in one little enviroment. It is so easy and efficient, much more economical than hydroponics. This book takes you to your aquaponic garden journey from explaining what aquaponics is and how it works. After you have a basic idea how it works it guides you how to create your garden. It is really straightforward and pictures makes it much easier too. There's much more on monitoring, balancing, maintenance and so on... Second part is about hydroponics, which I'm not that into right now and bought it just because it was a bundle, so won't share my opinion on that one.
It would have been nice to have had this one polished up and edited for misspelling etc. prior to being put into print. I can see someone being annoyed enough about all the errors and confusion to just toss it and find another text on the subject. I don't think the author even had anyone proof read this first. Big mistake. I believe the author knows what "his" subject matter is but it is somewhat annoying for the "reader" to push through. The saving grace is that it is a quick read and an interesting subject. Next time have your child's fifth grade English teacher look it over first. Just a suggestion.
This book includes everything and anyone interested in either aquaponics or hydroponics will need. I liked the lists of plants you can grow and which fish would be best for different situations. I have been interested but had no idea everything that you could actually grow. I also appreciated the description of everything I would need to plan and watch out for when setting up these systems. This will be very beneficial to troubleshoot and save me time and money. Although I read through everything, I will continue to reference this book frequently when attempting to set up my system.
I enjoyed reading this books.I found this books very informative this book contains how to set up and run your aquaponic garden has been extremely helpful.This book set has a complete information on hydroponics and aquaponics. It explained the benefits of using aquaponics and hydroponics to achieve the optimal growing condition.I will definitely recommend this book to those people who want a healthy lifestyle.
I enjoy gardening. I used to do it when I was still in my childhood days as I am helping my father in his area in our backyard. I enjoy eating fresh foods in us so I used it as my past time as well till now. This aquaponics idea rings my bell. An innovation of the gardening that I usually do. Maybe it’s about time to level up my learning so I need a reliable source before engaging into it. This book contains lots of information that we need to know. Well researched!
This was a great book combination. These methods of growing plants are rapidly becoming a wide spread method of planting and growing plants especially herbs. What I love most of all is the simple complexity of these technologies. What prompted this purchase was my desire to learn a way of growing my own herbs without the hassle of soil seeing that I live in a small apartment. I am definitely impressed. The author did a great job.
