Looking really good there.

The turbulence, worms and bacteria all do their bit. As long as the particle size is reduced before it goes into the grow bed I am fine. When time permits I will make it four mineralization drums as before.

Thanks all

I just went thru my worm farm (cant believe i ended up fingers in!!) and pulled out another 50 or so worms and spread them thru the system, noticed plenty of bsf larvae in there too, need to finish the biopod to harvest them beuties!

The flowering seasol should do the trick, I think it has plenty of potassium in it.

Taken from the website out of interest. Seasol power feed, flowering and fruit.

W/V: Nitrogen (N) 10.0%. Phosphorus (P) 2.0%. Potassium (K) 9.0%

There are other potassium options if it doesn't give them a boost.

Good job on getting the eggs, I saw some of mine chasing each other, and i put in the mop, but didn't get babies.

Let us know how they go.

Where do you sell the strawberry runners?

Thanks - 4 different broods hatched, there would have been many more but i was a bit slow to realise how fast they all swarmed in to munch on the eggs! they took close to 2 weeks to hatch, and i nearly gave up on the first lot when i spotted the fry - had to look up baby goldfish pics cause they look a lot like mozzie wriglers!

Havn't tried selling any runners yet, but i bought them as 4 little polish strawberry plants from marion markets 3 years ago, and now there must be over 200, and all growing runners! so i figured i might try the market too...
