Spirulina: Harvesting & Maintaining your Culture

On maintaining and harvesting Spirulina, in order to provide a constant supply at home of this superfood algae — one of the more nutrient-dense things one can grow in a small space, in order to be more self-sufficient and ensure your family’s food security. All links below!

– Lights: (dual) 45W Kingbo LED light per tank, a mere $30 right now — http://amzn.to/2uUcosg
– 50 micron screen: http://amzn.to/2f5LzeW
– 200W heater: (claims rated up to 75gal, but I’m using this for my 40gal, deliberately over-sizing to avoid burning out): http://amzn.to/2u1JNCi
– ph Digital + Waterproof 0-14 meter — also useful for Aquaponics : http://amzn.to/2f6EMSg
/ or : pH Test Strips 9.2 – 10.6 microFine pH strip : https://www.microessentiallab.com/ProductInfo/F04-MCRFN-092106-MID.aspx

– top off with clean water as needed (evaporation)
– bubbles on culture: needs to be stirred
– globules in culture: needs to be harvested

– pH:
over 10? ready to harvest.
starts around 8.6, after adding baking soda into initial medium
over 11? too high, may need new medium

– heater: oversize deliberately. you’ll be running at max temperature — mine burned out.

– “rest”ing the culture — reduce temperature to 65-80, reduce light

– keeping a backup
– 1L on standby — or run multiple tanks!

Spirulina: Food (Nutrient Mix) Recipe / Keep the Faith (33)

IAF walks through the recipe used when creating a nutrient mix, fed to your Spirulina when harvesting to replace nutrients, ensuring a solid harvest tomorrow! Also, a discussion of the pH dynamic as a new spirulina culture grows in a new medium/tank: although it may look like things aren’t going well, keep the faith and persevere, we will ultimately find success.

IAF: A Call to Spread Awareness

IAF issues a sincere call to spread awareness of the Grand Solar Minimum we have entered and the importance of GROWING YOUR OWN FOOD, and, in sharing the message, building stronger, self-sufficient communities to thrive in the times ahead.

“Survival seed packs” do a disservice by implying a sense of food security, when in fact, it is the knowledge of how to grow food, save seeds for next year, and share this knowledge with a growing, self-sufficient community. IAF explores how to meet the most basic of human needs in a bottom-up (individual) model, without the state to provide for you.

Also in this video:

* hill your potatoes at 8-10″ high. potatoes are top of list of calorie-rich food.
* viewing spirulina algae at 1200x

Spirulina: New Tank, Medium Recipe

Join me as I set up two new tanks (a 30 and a 40 gallon) to grow Spirulina, including the medium, which is the secret sauce of farming this superfood algae!

See the complete recipe here — I will keep this page up to date if/as the recipe evolves.

YOU CAN DO THIS AT HOME! –And you should, to produce clean food for your family. It’s that or watch as the food prices continue to increase, and ultimately, the shelves empty completely.
