Having an aquaponics system is fun and very rewarding. Not only for the fresh and naturally grown veggies but also for the knowledge you will acquire along the way. In this article I will introduce you to a very important parameter: the pH. You may have heard about this term, mostly concerning your drinking water. Well, our favourite pets (our fish) as well as our plants like their water to a certain pH and this is for that reason, you will have to test it. So without any overdue, let's talk about potential of hydrogen aka pH.
There is indeed an aquaponics movement picking up in Dubai. I see more and more new comers, residents purchasing from me small systems to put in their backyard or by the window sill. This is very encouraging. And many more come and visit us to see with their own eyes what is this about. I tell you, when they see the papapya tree I have growing in the grow bed and they can compare with the one planted in soil, exactly at same time, they realise the potential.
But these people are expats, no nationals have been visiting so far.
So I decided for this short article to share with you how is the aquaponics doing at the National level.
