    I was skeptical of this at first but after I saw my plants improving I was just so thankful to you for posting it.

    All you really need is about 3 or 4 inches of lava rock at the bottom of your containers. And holes near the top of the rocks. Aeration for the roots ,acidification and loaded with minerals.

    Thank you for the info, I started using collapsible fabric storage containers to see how my plants do, but I’ll try this method as well and run with it. Dollar tree also have storage containers with holes too, not sure about the durability, but doesn’t hurt to try those, especially for small plants.

    If I have small fruit trees in large air-pruning containers, will they be okay outside through winter? (I'm in Canada), or what should I do to winterize them?

    What Is Air Pruning? Can It Really Improve My Container Gardening? You May Be Surprised!

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ptgJn15TmRM 2:18 to 3:46 This guy accidentally duplicated the same conditions of the original and ancient aquaponic system called chinampas which were already ancient during the time of the Incas. I suggest you add some azolla to the water filled kiddie pools to naturally fix nitrogen to provide you with free nitrogen fertilizer and to filter the water to keep it fresh and to prevent mosquitoes from inhabiting your natural chinampa system using the grow bags in water-filled kiddie pools.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ZyB47qGXoI 19:23 to 21:19
    A chinampa is 300 feet long by about 30 feet wide. Can produce 7 to 8 crops a year and can produce 3 times the normal yield of a land based farm. Beats hydroponics, beats aquaponics, beats bioponics, beats aeroponics, beats them all. It can also be used to raise fish and edible aquatic plants. And using phyto-remediating plants to keep the water clean and fresh, and free of pests, parasites, germs, diseases, and what else anyone could think of. If placed inside a hardened and well insulated greenhouse it can practically produce food all year round. It is also time-tested and time-proven for thousands of years, in fact the Spanish Conquistadores were told by the people using the chinampa agricultural technique that the chinampa technique is already ancient by the time their ancient ancestors discovered and copied it from an unknown civilization many thousands of years old already! By planting vetiver ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ssOES-0oke4 ) or jiji-sao grass
    ( https://www.vetiver.org/CHN_jiji.htm ) against erosion one can ensure that the chinampas will be able to maintain themselves indefinitely. If placed inside a hardened and insulated greenhouse or a Monolithic Dome or Bini Dome and using artificial growlights like an agrithermosphere ( https://www.monolithic.org/homes/featured-homes/an-agrithermosphere ) one can, if properly designed and modified and built, maintain year round food production year after year. The water surround the chinampas can be filled with edible aquatic plants and aquatic bio-remediation plants to maintain high water quality.

    Cattails and other edible aquatic plants and medicinal herbal pharmaceutical crop plants against diseases and starvation in a "The Collapse of Civilization is Inevitable"

    Yields are fantastic. Marsh discovered he could harvest 140 tons of rhizomes per acre near Wolcott, NY. That represents something more than 10 times the average yield per acre of potatoes. In terms of dry weight of cattail flour, the 140 tons of roots wouldyield approximately 32 tons.Mar 13, 2016. Combine that with all kinds of edible water plants and bio-remediating water plants such as:

    1. Water hyacinths to prevent water eutrophication.
    2. Juncus lacustria exudes anti-pathogenicides.
    2. Aquatic mint, known as aquatica mentha, excudes a lingering anti-pathogenicide.
    4. Azolla fixes nitrogen from the air into the water.
    5. Sacred Chinese Lotus oxygenates the water to prevent anaerobic conditions, removes excess nutrients from the water and
    cleans it.
    6. Bulrush removes oil contaminants, carcinogenic compounds, and toxic contaminants.
    7. Vetiver grass prevents soil erosions at land edges and filters water.
    8. Black alder gets rid of sewage. And is planted with willows side-by-side for willows reinforces the chinampa soil while Black
    alder reinforces the banks and the river bed or stream bed or the artifical pond bed.
    9. Jiji-sao grass prevents soil erosions at land edges and filters water and can withstand saline and briny waters and cold and
    dry open fields.
    10. Adhatoda vassica exudes an anti-pathogenicide through it's roots and is planted at the edges of a chinampa or around
    a sanitary facility to neutralize all kinds of pathogens, germs, viruses, microorganisms, and bacteria.

    The companion planting with protective plants will help tremendously such as Yerba De La Pulgas the repels insects, Chamomile that heals plants, annual Mexican marigolds protects against blight, soil pests, and makes the soil friable.

    Why not use a mixture of 25% by volume compost/humus, 25% composite rock dust powder mixture, 50% biochar containing 5% limestone rock dust to control/eliminate acidity and 5% gypsum to control/eliminate alkalinity which are mixed together and moistened with a fine spray of water so that the rock dust powder will accelerate the conversion of compost into humus which is absorbed and stabilized by the biochar containing 5% limestome rock dust powder to control/eliminate biochar acidity and 5% gypsum rock dust powder to control/eliminate biochar alkalinity which will also create a shelter for countless trillions of beneficial social bacteria and fungi to help enrich the soil and prevent soil nutrient depletion for an indefinite time. Then use it in these air pruning grow bags placed inside a small pool of water inside a plastic container containing azolla and/or water hyacinth to prevent water eutrophication and the azolla will fix nitrogen, the water is mixed with composite rock dust mixture dissolved in it until saturation point is reached. What this guy has accidentally created is a hybrid living machine hydroponic-artificial terra-preta soil system.

    theey just keep searching instead of using whats in hand. they die looking for what they already have. they dont know their weapons are in hand and to fight with tools. they walk blinded and then run in panic towards nowhere instead of enjoying the ride. struggle defeat and cell damage makes it stronger and more self improving, a bad day a wrong step shows and highlights the real paradise and wealth forgotten and lost now missused and wasted. so liberty is death. light will blind and cripple enjoy what you have embrace the darkness use what you have. willingly become enslaved to the guide hand of the pharaoh thank your tyrant master pruner for atacking you.

    Here is what I learned from experts, Leaves are what the plant uses to make flowers, buds do not make buds. The more leaves you have, the better the weed.
