First aquaponics Observations

My first observations was of a radish from my class’s aquaponics garden.

During the aquaponics garden, it has been struggling to survive with the passings of many of our fish. Causing the growth of the plants to cease at a speeding rate. Which explains the undevelopment of my radish.

These were my findings:
-24 inches from the roots to the top of the plant
– 6 inches in width of leaf foliage
-plant fruit (radish) 1 ½ long; pink in color

– From the size of it, it seems it has been getting a sufficient amount of light
-Dead leaves; from the roots, not enough water or nutrients for early growth
