She wants to install this system on her balcony in Paris. ) ( This horizontal tube makes a ‘vertical garden,’ that is, an 8 foot wide sheet of green going up a fence or wall. See the video below for examples of other vertical gardens, in New York, the Middle East, and here in Los Angeles — https://youtu.be/ZNuKHTcqkxc ) This video will soon be updated with a series of shorter videos showing more advanced techniques.

Fill the large diameter pipe with hydroponic rocks, then water with a drip system or pumped flow. Chipped brick or rock wool can also be used. The interior of the pipe creates a closed space for roots. The upper curve of the pipe protects the roots from light and air. The length of a single pipe can be twenty feet. A scrap drain pipe can reduce the cost of the project to less than 0 including the pump. ( In the years since I made this video, I assembled a three tube system for less than 0. Powered by a cheap solar panel and pump, the system operated automatically throughout the daylight hours. This year, the cheap pump failed, I bought a 0 pump and added two more tubes and 16 bucket/netpot modules.
