An excellent way to start plants for growing in an aquaponics system. Can raise up to 45 seedlings at a time.
 
This is the seedling-raising system we use at Practical Aquaponics. They are simple and easy to use, and have an exceptional germination rate (we usually get 100%).
 
System consists of: 
  • 45 Net Pots (mini slotted net pots)
  • 45-hole plastic Net Pot holder
  • Water-holding tray
  • Vermiculite growing medium - both Fine and Coarse
  • Tag sticks
  • Sample seeds
Method:
  • 3/4 fill the net pots with coarse vermiculite
  • Place one seed into each pot (This kit is very economical on seeds)
  • Cover the seeds with fine vermiculite
  • Fill the plastic tray with water (Use water from the fish tank, or make up a solution of seaweed extract)
  • Use the wooden sticks to tag and date the rows of seeded pots
The water is wicked up into the net pots and keeps the pot contents moist for the duration of seedling production, thus avoiding the need to water from above; watering from above often dislodges or sinks the seed too far down into the seed-raising mixture, resulting in poor germination.
 
Once germinated, just shift the whole net pot from the seedling tray to your raft bed, GroTower, or media bed. No need to transplant or re-pot the seedlings. Easy!
