Transplanting Rosemary

Have Rosemary planted in a small pot as initial start. Out of four, three so far made it to this stage in my aquaponics gutterbed. Decide to transplant it to bigger pots so that it can continue to grow.

Rosemary is a shallow rooting plant and it doesn’t do well in Aquaponics. The last time I plant this was in the traditional growbed, trying out in gutterbed. Hope it will have better chances of surviving the water this time.

Live Streaming Test on Youtube

With the extension of MCO/PKP we are running out of ideas of what to do at home. The government gave few suggestions, gardening is one of free time activities that was recommended. Unfortunately, it is something majority of us are lacking on the availability of space for this.

Aquaponics is something that can solve this problem, have a look at this test streaming. It is short but the point covered is worth to ponder further.

I’ll try to do a live streaming on Youtube if anyone interested. The equipment ready and tested, just that I am new to live broadcast so don’t expect a smooth without hiccup kind of streaming.

Any inputs is highly appreciated, to improve my streaming.
