A couple of the plants were placed in early when I managed to severely poison the whole system with way too much NH3 added.

Can I ask how? You added it?


Imagine the dumbest thing you can do with an aquaponics garden and 1 gallon of 10% NH3 solution.

Now make it only slightly less dumb and equally destructive.

Okay! It’s been a day. I got ladybugs for the garden for aphid control. Trimmed the large oak tree so the greenhouse should get a lot more morning and afternoon sun. Added another outlet and a bathroom ventilation fan.

Lady at the nursery said if the mold/fungus doesn’t start to get better in a few weeks I should consider discarding the affected plants and replacing them. Thoughts on that?

Yeah, no harm in ripping plants out and replacing with fresh ones.

So the fixes I made seem to be helping. I have a couple strawberries that have started to fruit.

Cucumbers are getting EVERYWHERE and lots of flowers but no fruit.

I'm in a greenhouse, so probably not a lot of bees and wind to help with pollination. I've watched some YouTube videos on pollinating.

What is your favorite pollination method?
