The new AQUAPONICS COLLECTION seed line launched by Domus Seeds is based on a sustainable and natural cultivation methodology at 100%. We are talking about the culture in aquaponics, a technique that does not involve human intervention and no use of fertilizers for the duration of the life cycle of our beloved plants! In fact,aquaponicscombinesaquaculture (fish and shellfish farming) and hydroponic cultivationtogether. It is a natural and perfect cycle, which exploits the advantages of acquaponica, such as the saving of water and the exploitation of spaces, obtaining from fish bred natural fertilizer and recycling the water with continuous circulation. This type of plant uses the drainage water of the fish tanks to irridoor the growth beds where the plants are placed (use expanded clay, Lapillo etc…). This water, rich in nutrients essential for plant development, is detrimental to fish, and this is where the bacterial populations (also formed in growth beds) enter into action that will transform the waste substances into Natural fertilizer that will then be absorbed by the roots. Fish with their manure produce ammonia, nitrosomonas bacteria turn it into nitrite, while nitrobacter bacteria that feed on nitrite, will release nitrates (mineral salts) Essential for the development of Plants, which with their roots will purify the water for the fishes. Domus Seedshas also introduced in its sustainable crops a further natural filter, formed by a colony of sea worms, useful to liquer those "heavy solids" that the roots will not succeed in absorbing. The Acquaponica is a sustainable and natural technique at 100% and as for studies and tests carried out, offers vegetables with superb flavour and plants with intense scents, as well as seeds with unique properties, not altered and Natural to 100%.
