Wrapping up the decoupled anthroponics experiment

Here are some pictures showing the recovery of the basil and coriander. After controlling the pH by adding phosphoric acid (in the DWC component) and wood ash (in the biofilter component), as well as adding some chelated iron in the DWC component, the plants have recovered dramatically.

The next step will be to harvest the produce, write a small technical report about this proof of concept, and do it again with the lessons we have learned from the pH drift and lack of nutrients.img_20161201_184425img_20161201_184434

Healthy roots growing in the DWC component, with a small airstone for oxygenation, and weekly dosage of the urine after ageing and biofiltration.
