I put together eight new hydroponic tank’s this morning with multiple aeration stones wach. I have one pump that runs all 8.
It is starting to appear that aeration does a lot better than Kratky and also requires less filling of the individual jars. At this point I’m inclined to give away the jars as it’s too much up keep on a larger scale. The root development is also quite different, so the transition into the aerated tanks could be a problem.
32 plants switched over. The tanks aren’t very deep, which seems ideal in principle, but that may be a challenge down the road if roots get out of control.
My largest tank is doing the best.
And my first (and much smaller tank) is doing the worse. Though I wonder if it is due to the weak a bubbles. I may add more stones today and see what happens.
We were up early this morning, but it turned out to be worth. We had such a nice experience on the hot air balloon today…we had to wait a bit for the mist to go away and then launched with about 50 other balloons.
They have no control other than up and down, so 50 balloons just float over a small town and then land wherever they can.
We arrived to Mexico City the day before yesterday for a few days of vacation. Yun lived here in her early years – it’s my first visit. The city is enormous with nearly 20 million people. Traffic is absolute madness.
Also not cheap, at least in the part of town we ended up. Dinner our first night was spectacular.
There is an abundance of food options. Fortunately, wr have to walk a lot, so there’s balance. We walked nearly 10 miles yesterday according to my tracker.
The natural history museum was impressive. Yun loves this stuff. Im generally bored within minutes. Even so, it was all very impressive.
We went to the castle in town after the museum. We had walked about 7 miles at that point, so I found it all exhausting.
We got up this mornimg at 3.30am to take a journey to some pyrmids. We booked an air balloon flight which required the early departure.
Who rented a nice little place right on the water. We got in late last night. My sister surprised us in Nanaimo. It was a long journey to get here. When we arrived last night we wanted to tour the property in the dark.
