Aquaponics

Last Update: 1/30/2019

This is an indoor gardening project started by myself and some apartmentmates at NDSU. Aquaponics is similar to hydroponics, but adds fish as a supply of nutrients for the plants. We are currently working on expanding our setup.

Our first setup originally had tomatoes planted in it, but they had issues growing due to their high nutrient requirement. We removed them and have now planted a combination of parsley, oregano, and kale. For our ECE 376 final project, my apartmentmate Jake and I made a video showing the electronics that control the system:

I'll be updating this as we make more progress!
