Aquaponic-grown Ipu at Nanakuli

See what’s been growing at our Nanakuli “Ipu Waiwai Kula – ‘AE” Aquaponics in Education project site! Educator, Jewelynn Kirkland, harvested these ipu, or “Bottle Gourd” (Lagenaria siceraria), mainly for safety reasons. They were growing so fast and large that she was afraid of the gourds falling on someone (the plants have since been removed). Compared to her soil-grown ipu, the aquaponic-grown variety grew much faster and fuller. Great experiment!
