Aquaponics – Cabbage plant eaten by bugs

Cabbage and cauliflower are two of the most resilient plants that we have seen doing well in aquaponics. However, today we were taken by surprise to find out that one of our cabbage plants (and a young cabbage 😦 ) is eaten almost fully by some pests.

Yet to do a search on the Internet but any idea what these are and what would be an organic method to control them?

Luckily two other cabbage plants are not affected much. So I removed the infected plant from the growbed and washed the other two plants.

Aquaponics -Update

I have not been doing a good job of posting updates lately, so here is a catch up.

We did a clean up of all our tanks and growbeds and the next batch of plants are already getting close to harvest, bitter gourd had been the first which I posted a couple of days ago. 

Here are some pictures… eight weeks of growth.

New batch of vegetables (tomato, cabbage, cauliflower, eggplant / brinjal, mint)

Smaller growbed for climbers

Growth after two weeks

Growth after six weeks

Mint with big leaves, may be due to shade of other plants
