Asparagus Update

Asparagus has germinated, this photo below is after about 5 days
Initial sowing : Here
I can see about 5 seedling and more should be coming.
Above close up of Asparagus seedling. This batch I will dedicate one growbed for them. It will take sometime for these to mature and start producing.

Asparagus is something totally new to me, I don't know what to expect. We'll see what happen, whether its growable in my Aquaponics set.


  1. Hi. Just want to know if you were successful with your asparagus? plan to buy some seeds and plant in my ebb & flow aquaponics system in the Philippines. Thanks for your reply

    1. I had move my setup hence the asparagus trial had to be discontinued. It grow, however Asparagus plant takes a long time to mature and start producing. Aquaponics is more suitable for short term plants, if I may suggest.

  2. Aquaponics is a combination of aquaculture what does systematic agriculture mean, which is growing fish and other aquatic animals, and hydroponics which is growing plants without soil. Aquaponics uses these two in a symbiotic combination in which plants are fed the aquatic animals' discharge or waste.
