An indoor aquaponics system is ideal for people who are limited on space, have no backyard or who are not living in a climate where it’s ideal for plant growth. Robert Brennan of Get Forked shows you step-by-step how to build an indoor desktop aquaponics system for less than $200.
Ok, firstly, here a list of the things that you need to get started. Most of these items can be obtained in your local hardware store or even the Internet for a very low price.
“I have this old desk that I haven’t used for ages and I really wanted to do something with it so I decided to build an aquaponics system. Just very small utilizing very little space in your house but you’re going to be able to grow great vegetables that you can use in your cooking anytime.”
“So basically what it is, is we’re going to have the same thing as a flood and drain hydroponic system but instead of having to use nutrients and fertilizers that we buy at the store already made, what we’re going to do is we’re going to use fish waste to create the nutrients for the plants.”
