BIG Basil!

_MJR5176If you follow ECOLIFE,  you know that we are very pleased and often proud of the abundant greens and herbs produced in our aquaponic systems.  But we just have to share our amazement about the size of our recent basil crop.  The giant plant pictured here is the result of a seasoned indoor aquaponic system lit by cutting-edge LED lighting that we are testing out for some good friends of ours.  For indoor growing, LED technology offers many advantages in terms of energy consumption and product longevity, along with other eco-benefits.   As you can see, it is also quite capable of producing some astounding and tasty results.  Some equally enormous chard was produced in adjacent pots.  Stay tuned for more on our experience with this exciting advancement in grow-light technology.
