I think some people make nettle tea. Also, I've heard you can extract rennet from them to make cheese with.

Thanks Kronimiciad,

It looks like it does have some benefits, as Cookie said it would run rampant in aquaponics and be more trouble than what it's worth. Wicking beds maybe, or in the soil but I'd keep it well away from your aquaponics.


What Is Nettle Tea?

In one of those strange-but-true twists of nature, it turns out that the plant that can cause you so much harm could be the very solution to treating your problems. The stinging nettle, Latin name, Urtica dioica, has been used medicinally since at least 3 B.C. In medieval times, it was used to treat pain in joints, as well as act as a diuretic. Today, nettle root is used to treat urinary problems associated with an enlarged prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia), urinary tract infections and hay fever. Nettle leaf, meanwhile, is most commonly used to treat pain, osteoarthritis, allergies and hay fever. The leaves and stems can be eaten in a salad, cooked into soup or made into a tea, but the nettle root is more likely to be extracted with alcohol to make a tincture, dried and taken in capsules, or dried and made into a tea. The plant has few known side effects, but as with any medicinal preparation, you may want to consult a health care practitioner before adding nettles to your diet or treatment plan.

Could be getting ready for the World Stinging Nettle Eating Championships

Aquaponic grown may be sweeter or have more kick

with anything that can go quickly consider something like Dutch Buckets (Bato Buckets).
That would be more controllable and less risk of a bed being permanently taken over.
