Natural Science 301 Guidelines

This is an open forum area for all members for discussions on all issues of science and origins. This area will and does get volatile at times, but we ask that it be kept to a dull roar, and moderators will intervene to keep the peace if necessary. This means obvious trolling and flaming that becomes a problem will be dealt with, and you might find yourself in the doghouse.

As usual, Tweb rules apply. If you haven't read them now would be a good time.

      Vertical gardening?

      That's a difficult position.

      It's MUCH easier if one kneels.

        Posts that explain or describe techniques would be welcome.

        Aquaponic is basically hydroponic with fish - it's a more holistic approach. Fish provide poop to feed plants and are themselves harvested as food.

        There is nothing simple about a hydro or aqua ponic system. Both have to be constantly monitored for nutrient levels, ph, and anything else that can adversely affect plants and/or fish. Computers can do a lot of the heavy lifting but not all. Both are expensive start ups and are high maintenance which is why neither has been thus far very viable commercially. I personally expect they will eventually come into their own, and the urban model is a likely candidate. Whether this is an example of a fully successful system, time will tell.
