I 'm trying to grow duckweed to feed my tilapia. It grows VERY slow . What are the conditions which are good for good growth rates?
What are the best conditions.
Aerate, Change water frequently, shade, full sun etc.?
Now I just let a 1/2 of a 55 gallon sit and let the duckweek do it's thing. It doesn't grow much at all. Not like some peeps say theirs does anyway.
Thanks Jack

You need an ammonia source.... not a lot of aeration... and not much flow....

Summer might need some shade over your way... but winter... it should be powering along....
