Hi! I want to set up a window farm to grow some herbs, mainly. Well, at least for right now. To get my feet wet.
I live in Japan, in a building made completely of concrete, built most likely in 1950′s or 60′s. There is no central air just a small, expensive, electric air-con/heater installed over the balcony window. Right now, it’s winter in Japan. So, needless to say, I am typing while hiding under the cheapest source of heat, a heated table. (I know, I am leaving a carbon footprint but I can’t function with cold digits or nose) Anyway, I am wondering if I can still attempt a window farm system if the average temperature in my apartment during winter is about 1C (or 35F) the lowest being -4 C (28F)(usually) and in summer it can reach about 35C (95F). I have no way to regulate the temperature in the air-con room, efficiently or cost effectively.
I have more questions about how to find appropriate plant nutrients but I am also certain I can continue to peruse this site to find that information.
Any advice sent my way would be appreciated!
