Hydroponics Vs Aquaponics
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Hydroponics is an excellent way to grow your vegetables with a few exceptions. Let's take a look at how the vegetables are nourished with hydroponics. In order to supply the nutrients needed for vegetable growth one must add some kind of Chemical(s) to the medium(water) in which the plants are being grown. The vegetables grow at an accelerated rate yes, but at what cost one might ask? Since the vegetables will not grow without these nutrients you must add chemicals to the water. And by doing so whatever vegetables you are growing will absorb those Chemicals into the plant. So whatever you add to the water will end up in your body. Personally I would rather have the nutrients added naturally as when grown in an Aquaponics System.

Aquaponics is a Natural (organic) relationship between fish and vegetables...Really cool... Fish produce Ammonia, Algae, Minerals, and these contain mostly nitrogen(nitrates) and is a great natural(organic) nutrient for plant growth. The plants in turn will gladly utilize these natural nutrients to grow in half the time it would take for them to come to maturity in the soil. Another really cool tidbit is that after the plants utilize the nitrates they get from the fish, the plants filter and oxygenate the water and return it back to the fish! Now that's a Organic relationship! Because of aquaponics you will be able to organically grow ten times the amount of food in the same space of soil. Very cool. You will do this without fertilizers, without chemicals, without soil, no pesticides, and taste amazing and be extremely healthy for you and your family! And the best part is you can do it easily from home.

After six months to a year and you have a yanker for some fish, just yank out one or two of these large deliciously healthy mature fish for dinner. And yes some of those Organically Grown Vegetables that you have been eating all year round...excuse me for just a minute, i'm beginning to slobber, just a little...I'll be right back...Okay, got that taken care of LOL...Aquaponically grown strawberries... yummy! Sorry, had to take that break...

Listen, I have no problem with hydroponics except for the Chemical usage. Hydoponics has been around for a long time and is a great way to grow veggies but when I learned about Aquaponics it was like a light had turned on for me and I wanted food that was organically grown and aquaponics is the way!

I really hope you have enjoyed this article as much as I have bringing it to you...

Our next article will continue with more on aquaponics!
