My first attempt at a windowfarm followed Ver2 from the website pretty closely. I built it at a friends place though and it got neglected for several weeksand everything died.My current incarnation is the result of my desire to combine woodworking with vertical gardening. It is still very primitive and I would change a lot of things if I were to rebuildit but that would be in the fall if ever. The biggest difference between this farm and the traditional hanging farms is that, well, this one does not hang. It is supported from the bottom by a wooden structure and instead of the planters being suspended by chain or string they are firmly nested into vertical slats of wood. This allows me to easily move the pots around and arrange plants according to type and size. The basic concepts are all the same though, vertical hydroponic growth using bottles as pots.
The aquatic pump I am using only has two line-outs so it was necessary to split them in order to feed the outer two columns. The local hydro store did not have T-splitters, only had X-splitters, so I plugged up the extra tip. This manifold will get renovated in the next couple of days because right now the top row of planters is not usable.
