We have talked and heard so much about the window farm in the past few days but still there are some of us who are unaware of what it actually is.
In simple term window farm is an indoor garden built with recycled products. We use hydroponics system to grow plants in recycled plastic bottles. There are some special materials that are required to grow plants using the hydroponics system like water based nutrients and rock wool (substitute for soil), we don’t use soil in hydroponics.
Below are some of the designs we came up with for the window farm.
Fig.1 Have four columns and rows of plastic bottles and build a reservoir below the bottles at the level of the window.
Fig.2 2 columns and 4 rows of plastic bottles and use the bottles in fourth row as reservoirs.
Fig.3 Use the current design with 3 columns and rows with two pipes one at top and one at bottom as reservoirs.
We are still working on more ideas and plans to come up with the most feasible design.
