Growing Spirulina at home

Leave a comment

I am a big fans of microorganisms and a good friend just got me thinking about growing Spirulina. As a superfood and /or as a food for an aquaponics program it seems nearly ideal…

Here are some cool web resources I found.

First, wikipedia

This fellow is growing Spirulina for his Bristlenose Pleco (fish) but has given it some thought and has some interesting references.

Here is a YouTube video on growing Spirulina as food for Tilapia in Aquaponics system

And here is the most serious reference I found on the web

Finally, here is a natural health site with a collection of articles on the benefits of spirulina – and offers to sell you the supplement
