Using Bioponics in an 800’ sq ft grow area; How much organic liquid nutrient fertilizer is required?
When growing heavy feeding plants in a 15′ square foot Biogarden bed, at peak season, I will use 1-1.5 gallons of a liquid fertilizer daily, derived from the biomass blends we formulated (Primordial Soup).
Being vertical and stand alone beds, the plants are able to grow over an area exceeding in many cases 100′ sq ft. In a more constrained area, less fertilizer liquid would be needed.
For 800 sq ft, it is safe to say that your total plant needs would be closer to 40-60 gallons per day. Our 20′ Biogarden will produce 600 gallons of plant fertilizer ever 7-14 days. It takes 1 lb of our Primordial Soup to make 3 gallons of suitably concentrated liquid fertilizer.
Many fish are filter feeders, requiring only liquid feed. They may live entirely from decomposed biomass.
Filter feeding and suspension-feeding fish include such varieties as tilapia, crawfish, shrimp, clams, goldfish, koi, grass carp, mollies all fish fry. All of these fish thrive on a liquid diet derived from decomposing organic matter.
