We are going to be doing small-scale hydroponics experiments with berries and would like to get our hands on some small quantities of commercial hydroponic liquid nutrient concentrates or powders (we plan to compare results against a tea brewed from worm casings). Any ideas about where we could find this in Nicaragua?
If not, I will have to have it sent to me from up north. Should I expect the usual enormous bullshit from Customs and the post office, or am I worrying over nothing?
My good friend Roger is trying hydroponics but he is not using concentrates developed specially for hydroponics, and as for the results, well you had better ask him.
A company called Ball is planning a big hydroponic operation in Esteli but they are not up and running yet and so of no use to us.
At first we will be using a very simple system that we can make locally, but if anyone has any hydroponic equipment they would like to get rid of, please send me a PM.
By the way, if you are interested in running some hydroponic experiments yourself, please contact me. It would be very productive to start a network of people doing different field trials in different parts of Nicaragua.
Please do not use this thread to discuss aquaponics or aeroponics because that is beyond the scope of what we are trying to do.
