Water Hyacinth and fish OK for rain catchment drip irrigation?
posted 9 years ago
Hi, I'm planning to build a rain catchment drip irrigation system for my small-plot urban farm. I just stopped by the botanical gardens, and they were selling water hyacinth, so I bought some. They claimed the plant, which floats like a lily and blooms, cleanses the water. Two questions:

Been there. Done that. Went back for more. But this time, I took this tiny ad with me:
