Most people have directed their attention towards hydroponicfarming which enables them to grow vegetables in their own house or their garagejust using water and some specially designed pots. Yet, the drawback of thehydroponic farming is the fact that you will need to use chemical substances tofeed the plants and make them grow normally. This significantly affects the tasteand the quality of the crops.With aquaponics this does not happen. Aquaponic relies on the symbiosis betweenplants and fish. Thus, you can define aquaponics as a mixture of aquaculture andhydroponics, where you get to grow both plants and fish in a perfectinterdependence. Because of this, you will never need to use any type of chemicalsubstances, thus resulting tastier and healthier crops. Only placing a small amountof chemicals in the water will immediately have serious effects on the fish,endangering their lives and you do not want that to happen.You may wonder what type of vegetables are you able to grow using the aquaponicsystem. Well, almost any plant you can think of, excluding, of course, the plantswhose fruits grow inside the ground, like potatoes, sweet potatoes, onions, garlicand so on. Fruity vegetables like cucumbers, strawberries, tomatoes, squash, okra,pepper, melon; herbs like basil and oregano; different types of beans and peas aswell as green leafy vegetables grow very well in this type of system.What will amaze you even more is the great taste your veggies and legumes willhave. You will not believe that something so good can be grown in your garage orin your living room. They have a far better taste than the veggies you buy from themarket as they are all natural, organic and have no other chemical“improvements”. Just what is best of the plant! Your meals will be healthier andtastier!

This means that the fish provides the plants the necessary foodwhile the plants, by feeding on the fish’s excrements clean their water, thus makingtheir environment a “comfortable” home.

Yet, not all theproducts claiming to be organic are always this way.
