Saturday March 10th, 2018 Aqua-Sprout Leaders Paige and Dennis planed Lettuce seeds in the Aqua-ponic and Hydroponics systems!

The Aqua-Sprout ambassadors Merlin, emo, Dude, and Crush (fish) help to fertilize the aquaponic system! The fish's waste helps to fertilize the seeds and assisted in kicking off germination! The water flows underneath the sponges, filling them with waterand feeding the seeds! The waterthat flows back into the tank is cleaned by the plants! We cant wait to see what happens! 8 seeds were planted in the Aquaponic system!

The hydroponcs system does not use soil as a medium! The lettuce seeds were planted into the sponges and transplanted into the hydroponic systems! Nutrient rich water is continually pumped through the hydroponic system! We can't wait to see the outcomes! 18 seeds were planted inthe hydroponcs system!
