Live in the city and don’t own a yard? No problem! Make a balcony or rooftop aquaponics garden instead. via instructables
BALCONY GARDEN — why is it different:
The BALCONY GARDEN uses no bell siphons at all (see section on resources for pros and cons of bell siphons). Grow bed water control is handled by a electric valve that allows for gravity feed pressures. By using a valve total control over grow bed water cycles can be scheduled and build into a grow plan to accommodate a large range of plant material. Using a valve of this nature gives builders of these unit the necessary tool to allow for fully automated capability that is not possible in all other aquaponic gardens at this price point.
CONCEPT OF THE BALCONY GARDEN:
The concept for the Balcony Garden is quite simple in concept. Have a small footprint aquaponic system that can be controlled with an Arduino using only parts that can be purchased at Local Big Box Stores or on Amazon.
