Aquaponics Network Australia (ANA) tubbed fruit trees to grow in “bioganic earth”
Switched-on horticulturalists in Brisbane are now growing tubbed fruit trees in a new kind of created soil named “Bioganic Earth”.
Aquaponics Network Australia will soon be demonstrating such trees in backyard-style aquaponics teaching units at Carindale and Nerang in SE Queensland.
It is a “specialist growing medium” created by noted Brisbane horticulturalist, John Daly, of eCo-Environment.
John’s vastly superior growing media for tubbed plants is also used for green roofs or green walls.
It has better plant growing capacity than any other soil (natural or created). Engineered to hold maximum water, it provides all plant foods, and provides superior root zone aeration. Cost is only about $1/litre volume..
It even has microbes in it for all the symbiotic root-zone tasks from which a growing plant can benefit.
Indoor plants grown in the new media have added benefit in better absorption of harmful VOC’s (volatile organic compounds) coming from building materials in new homes or offices.
Professional trials have well shown superior growth and sustainability of plants in the new specialist growing media, compared with other soils or substrates.
