    I’d like to see an “IKEA” hacker build a small wall unit that could revolve to face the plants out during the day, more sunlight, possible rain, and then rotate in during the night to benefit those of us where the nights become too cold early on. Gaskets like around a regular door could prevent heat loss and this would work in a too hot environment as well to prevent plants from burning in mid day. Could be small as in 2 feet by 2 feet or much bigger. Could be automatic with a timer. Or just hand turned. Extends the growing season.

      What a great idea! IKEA Hacker is a submission-based site, so the best way to see something like that on there is to give it a whirl! If you try it out, I’d love to hear how it goes, too! I love the timer idea.

      you’d get mosquitoes in the water and you’d be opening up the potential for birds to eat your foods before you could.

    Vertical garden is good for a narrow area, a good idea, but not trunked plants hard so short-lived, but it is more rapid spread of the disease occurs when the plant most of the disease, need attention more like my experiences.

    I know this is several months old, but I just found it & am very interested in the IKEA hacked fish tank garden.  I’d like to know more about how it works, but the link is broken.  Do you have any info about the original poster?

    I loved all of these ideas!

    On my site http://veganslivingofftheland.blogspost.com I have posted ways for apartment dwellers to grow food through vertical and container gardening. Go to the search bar of the site and type in “Three Ways to Grow Food & Other Plants for Apartment Dwellers (Indoors/Outdoors)”.
    Thanks again!
