aquaponoic growing

Aquaponics is the art of combining aquaculture (growing fish in tanks) with hydroponics (growing plants in water). It's sort of like organic hydroponics! 

In an aquaponic growing system, fish are raised in a tank and the nutrients they produce (contained in their poop and produced by their gills) gets converted by bacteria into nutrients for the plants. The plant roots help clean the water before it is re-circulated back to the fish tank, completing the cycle.
Aquaponics creates a tiny ecosystem - fish make nutrients for cannabis while cannabis cleans the water for the fish!
Although fish are the most common species used for aquaponics, other aquatic creatures like shrimp, crayfish or prawns can also be used. Both edible fish and ornamental fish can be used successfully in an aquaponic system. Generally you want to pick a species that is hardy and can tolerate crowding. Tilapia is an edible fish that adapt very well to aquaponics, and koi or goldfish are great choices for ornamental fish since they are nice to look at and can thrive in sub-optimal environments.
Aquaponics may be the most efficient way there is to cultivate both fish and plants at the same time because combining them together reduces the cost of farming each one individually! In big commercial operations, aquaponics is used to produce profitable combinations like tilapia fish and lettuce. In smaller setups, aquaponics is a sustainable, low-technology and efficient way to create food even with infertile land and low resources - aquaponics dramatically reduces the amount of water needed for raising fish, while producing high-nutrient plants at the same time!

Dabs and the new ways to smoke them!

I was always nervous with the big fancy dab rig when dabs became really popular.   A friend of mine showed me his Dr. Dabber, I was hooked at first sight!  So I didn't want to spend a bunch of money one one so I went to my local head shop, and was introduced to the staylit pen.

I give this dab pen 5 stars, its compact, doesn't get hot, just one piece of glass, and its a cheap piece to replace.  I like how you don't waste your concentrate, it heats it up till there's no more left.  The head fits on most other pen battery packs.  The battery life isn't bad, depends how much usage it has.

Check out my video review on the staylit dab pen.  https://youtu.be/5VvHWpYs9e8

You can also get them on amazon for a really good price, check it out here
