Best Discus of Asia (Collection)

Books Asian Discus 2 cropped
Asian Discus 2
Author: Johnny Yip
Soft cover with over 800 pictures

Discus from Asia have taken the world by storm in recent years. Guarded like diamonds and admired with the same awe these Amazonian wonders can cost several thousand dollars a piece.

Some are not even for sale. Secretly bred in a kaleidoscope of colours, these swimming gems are the result of years of painstaking work by Asian discus breeders.

So much was the interest and so intense was their labour that authors from five countries who spent years on research decided to put their findings in a collection five books which was launched by Petmart at Aquarama 2001.

To this day, the Asian discus remains one of the jewel of the East.

One man who made that contribution was advertising executive Mr Johnny Yip whose dedication even brought him to the Amazon river to see first hand the wild discus habitat.

Asian Discus 2, is his second book. His first was Asian Discus which is now out of print. Mr Yip who took almost all the 800 brilliant photographs for Asian Discus 2, took four years traveling all over Asia talking to top breeders.

The result is an impressive collection of pictures showing the various categories of the Asian discus in their full glory.

If you want to know what sort of discus are being bred in Asia, this book shows them all.

The Milwaulkee hand held refractometer is a precision optical instrument used for measuring concentrations of substances in aqueous solutions.

It works using the principle of light refraction through liquids.

When passing light trough a liquid the refracted angle will be shown on the scale determining the amount of dissolved solids in the liquid, letting you find how your plants are utilizing the nutrients.

Very simple to use: simply place one drop of your sample on the prism and read the results on the scales immediately! Factory calibrated and adjusted to measure at 68°F (20°C).

The Milwaukee Hand Held Refractometer has adjustable focus, easy to read numbers for good resolution and zero adjustment screw for calibration.

Lighting in Horticulture

Lighting in Horticulture
In recent years, there has been a leap forward in knowledge about the beneficial effects of artificial lighting on plant growth and yields.

Also, in combination with new growing techniques, there have been new developments in horticulture lamps, control gear, reflectors and light balancers.

Aftificial lighting can be applied in horticulture in various ways: to supplement daylight in greehouses to increase the irradiance for photosynthesis; to increase the effective daylength or decrease the period of darkness (photoperiodism); as a substitute for daylight in grow rooms where plants are grown under tightly controlled environmental conditions; and as a substitute for daylight in laboratories where plants are grown for research purposes.

For commercial growers, home gardeners and plant researchers, artificial lighting offers total control of the growing season, allowing crops to be grown out of season and on schedule.

This book provides a general knowldge of light and the photobiological processes that take place in plants, and the lighting technology now available to stimulate or control those growth processes.
LIGHTING IN HORTICULTURE examines in detail those light processes and explains how to measure light. It also outlines the various horticulture lamps, control gear, reflectors, and light balancers available on the market that can be used to increase plant growth and yields and includes the basics for designing s simple lighting layout for greenhuse and grow rooms.
