Intro: Home Made Windowsill Hydroponic Herb Garden

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.
