While growin Azolla the pH in the beds got high( pH level of 9, whileAzolla requires pH levels in between 5.5-7.5), and Azolla stopped growing and started drying out. During this time only one bed out of four had decent growth of Azolla. We believe Cow dung was the reason for the increse in the levels of pH in the beds.
- First of all the pH levels in the beds were diluted by adding extra water.
- And the decent grown Azolla from one bed was trasnfered to all the beds and they have started growing furiously now in all the beds.
- To maintain the temperature and the humidity inside the dome, Fan-pad system is being used.
