Cricket Food - Azolla

This may yet to be proven a perfect eco-friendly food for my crickets before being turned into food for the birds.

Now, time to get more tubs to cultivate these weeds (azolla)

They do not require full sun. Partial shade is preferred. In fact under full sun, it turns brownish. There are much more info on the web regarding Azolla cultivation that any interested parties may want to explore further. However I cultivate mine a little differently. I use AB fertilisers meant for hydroponic farming. At a concentration of 1,200 to 1,500ppm. Lower is still ok. Higher, the leaves turn brownish (2,000ppm)
