    Hi @Rutger,

    I bought the ceramic pot at http://www.chrisbloemsierkunst.nl/ in Bos en Lommer.
    PS: A few door towards the park on the opposite side of the street is the Aquarium house Amsterdam ( http://www.het-aquariumhuis-amsterdam.nl ), the supply nearly all the airlift materials you need to build and windowfarm

    Hi folks, I’m wondering how long to leave on my¬†supplement¬†lighting to give my 1 week old plants the best start. The windowfarm hangs in Amsterdam and minimal sunlight shines from +/- 8.00 am until 17.00 pm I have purchased a large Philips CFL Daylight bulb (200watts output –> 45 watt usage) It live about 2 [...]

  • Hi Brian, Thanks for the tip. When I lowered my airspeed the flow increased dramatically. However…. when the timer shuts the system off and back on again, there simply isn’t enough air power to continue airlifting. 2 ways to get things going are a) A quick manual turn of the airpump adjustment knob (max and [...]

    Hi T&N,

    Cheers for your reply.

    I ordered the seeds at http://www.koopzaden.nl . My oder arrived very fast. Also http://www.zadenkopenonline.nl/ looks good.
    The seeds have germinated on cotton wool for about a week.

    A convenient thing of living in NL is the number of Grow-shops (specialized in marijuana grow). At one around the corner (Haarlemmerplein Amsterdam) here I bought 20 turf-tablets (a 0.20 Euro cents) and an organic nutrinet called ”Growth-C from the brand:ATA Organics” http://www.atami.com/?pid=3&pcid=55 .

    My Ruccola, tomatoes, Basil are doing well.

    Keep us updated on your progress, challenges and insights.
    Regards,

    Andrew

    Dear Mikko, thanks for posting your design and progress. I was in the process of reluctantly spray painting and amaturistically cutting the openings plastic bottles when I came across your design. BINGO! Now I have found 12 ceramic pots at a flower shop. (1.50 Euro a piece). I simply gave them all 3 drill holes [...]

      Hi Andres, I like your design of using pots instead of bottles. Where did you buy those pots in Amsterdam?

    Hello folks, I stumbled upon the WindowFarm project about 4 weeks ago and have been excited about it ever since. The past 3 weeks I’ve been sourcing materials, building bits and bobs and tweaking, tweaking, tweaking to get our own WindowFarm to work properly. Now after 3 weeks, I’m more or less done. I haven’t [...]

      Hi Andrew,
      I think you can buy any seeds you want to, at least that is what we are doing (bought herbs from Ikea as the matter of fact). For nutrients I don’t know yet, we’re taking it step by step. First we want the herbs to come out of the seeds! :)
