I wanna make one out of 2 liter bottles... Anyone heard of these?? :P
I want to do a window farm for strawberry plants.... ill post up some pics of what i wanna do sometime soon
Im getting a program right now that will help me design it in 3d called solidworks... hopefully some stuff in a few days. Anyone here got cool ideas for one? I hear how they work is the different plant benefit each other if put in a certain order. Its also really cool because you just hang it in the window. I was thinking a trellis hung with 2 2 liters;1 with multiple slits for lil patches of strawberries, and then a second big open one for one big plant.... i dont know how to design this vertical system good and am planning to use recyclables and stuff
Nice idea now i can grow some plants in my front bay window....

Tried this. Use a proper drill bit fo the bottle connections. (think you neeed a 22mm flat wood-bit). Put 2 holes in each side and use a pair of nail scissors to finish the holes.
Everything written on here is a figment of my over-active imagination caused by mental health problems due to low THC levels in my brain. All pictures are posted by a mysterious stranger who hacks into my PC when I'm not looking. I'm not even sure I am real.
I made an airlift system today as a prototype, hopefully ill get something more solid together and get some pictures. I'm now looking into what i want to put in the planters. So many ideas are coming up I want as much input as possible. Thanks!
Any luck? I'm interested in how it's working out for you

people use hydroton. i forgot about my window farm as i am battling spider mites and cloning. i think u can use rapid rooters and just put them into the hydroton thats in the bottle. use an ebb+flow top fed airlift system u know what i mean?
here's the farm I made, all empty at the moment but the airlift works great!!!!
the top 3 are 1 L Poland springs and the 4th is a 1.5 Poland springs and the last is a 1 galllon water jug(the reservoir) with a screw on cap. I will be filling this with hydroton and lettuce and then build a semi-circle of this insulation material (which i used around each bottle) to help reflect light for the lettuce.
the clear 1/4" tubing i used is sleeved with some big black lightproof tubing, and all bottles were spray painted rubberized black before being wrapped
this is how I figured out how to make the airlift http://s5.windowfarms.org/wp-content...-April-7th.jpg
i silicone sealed the only fitting which could leak which is the 1/4" barb nipple coming out of the 1 gallon, but just in case i put a fail safe bucket (2 gallon) because that is more than the maximum water it can hold, and it will save my floor if anything happens
I even put a check valve on the air pump so that water can't siphon back to my pump and damage it (even though it's higher than the reservoir)
