Just wanted to take a minute and show some of the recent developments with our new GroPonix aquaponic system. Salad mix lettuce seeds were planted in coco plugs at the end of March and I can tell you that the amount of lettuce that has grown is simply AMAZING! A time lapse gif of the growth can be seen below.
As you can see the growth absolutely EXPLODES at around the 10 day mark. This lettuce is still growing now and I’ve had the luxury of gathering the freshest produce possible from my very own room. We have been pulling a few leaves off per day to trim the plants and encourage more growth, while also getting to enjoy the crisp and flavorful aquaponic lettuce in salads or on sandwiches.
Another great benefit of this system is that I have had to perform ZERO water changes since this system was placed on top of my 10 gallon tank. I have also haven’t had to clean the glass or adjust the pH at all! Testing the water gives zero nitrates and a solid pH of 6.5 that has been stable for almost 4 weeks now. The fish couldn’t be happier and the water is so crystal clear I am amazed at how little I have had to do over the last few weeks.
I am currently assembling GroPonix units so if you are interested in growing your own produce while maintaining an effortlessly clean aquarium, head over to our Products tab and order one today!
Here are some other picture of the great food I have been pulling off my GroPonix system:
