Home Made Windowsill Hydroponic Herb Garden


Introduction: Home Made Windowsill Hydroponic Herb Garden

About: I love to build grow lights and grow with hydroponics.
I built this hydroponic herb garden and works great!  Many people have made it from my youtube channel and I have more information on my website.  Here are all 3 videos in 1 place.  The top video is a time lapse experiment I did with basil growing in it. If you have any questions feel free to ask.  Enjoy!

    what about adding shrimp to the water? I've seen a lot about enclosed eco-systems where they use aquarium shrimp add nutrients for the plants and at the same time eat algae growth. wonder if that would be beneficial here.

    This seems like a very helpful tutorial! I just have one question: Do you have to paint the container black to absorb light, or can you do a different color? I am considering making one to have in my dorm room, and I might like to have a more fun color.

    I think opaque white would be better. The goal is too keep out the light. White would also reflect the light to benefit the plants.

    How often do you put in new nutrient and where do you put it in from?
