Hi everybody, some very slow but steady progress on my windowfarm. I’m about to start building, but much rather double check my ideas with you guys first. If i’m about to do something really stupid please don’t even try to be polite. ;->
I’ve found these plant container thingies in the discount (from 5 euro to 50 cents! I guess nobody wants these (-: ). I intend to suspend them on the chains (with key rings unless i come across a better way). I can always vary the vertical distance, but if anybody has any advice for a starting point, that’d be great.
At the top plant, the “Small Adaptation” (splitting the water-up tube at the top with a T-Joint) posted by @jflassche would fit perfectly at the top.
I’ve made holes in the bottom of 2 buckets, tried to let water run through. It looks like a steady and straight stream, but i still wonder if i can allow the drips to just freefall their way to the next plant? Or do i need tubes or wires that lead the water (and nutes) down to about the soil level of the next plant, so they don’t bounce of the leaves? At the moment, the cat food cans are right below where i intend to build this thing, so an alternative way to phrase this question is: Will my cats die, hate me and never look at me again if a drop of nutrient solution would land on their food?
