Ponics

Ponics … this phrase is used here because there is more than one technology of raising vegetables without the use of soil.  Of course this site is basically dedicated to the technologies involved in the raising of fish and vegetables through the use of Aquaponics, however in order to better understand Aquaponics, we need to delve into some of the others.

Aquaponics allow an individual to raise edible/ornamental fish and edible vegetables or ornamental/fruiting plants without the use of chemicals or soil.  There is only about a 10% water loss from the system due to evaporation.  All the advantages of the two following technologies without any of the drawbacks.

Hydroponics also raises vegetables without soil however there are drawbacks to Hydroponics; for one thing you can’t raise fish with the same water, for another you have to replace a large portion of your water regularly which contain chemicals that could get you into HOT WATER with the EPA.

Aeroponics also raises vegetables without soil however there again you can’t raise fish there and again you have to replace a large portion of your water regularly which contain chemicals that could get you into HOT WATER with the EPA.

They are all discussed here for you convenitnce…enjoy.
