There are endless models and techniques in which you can grow spirulina. Pretty much all of them include these elements:  

  • A large tank, aquarium, grow bag or pond
  • Water pump, air pump, paddle wheel or aerator
  • Additional heating, cooling or lighting depending on the growth environment and climate
  • pH/ temperature Meter
  • Secchi disk for measuring culture density
It depends on the culture volume and the size of your tank. When the water level in your tank has reached full capacity, you can stop adding culture medium and wait for the water to thicken. This process usually takes about 2 weeks, and after that, you can harvest every 2-3 days on average.
