12 Plant Vertical
Garden

I finally got this 12 plant vertical drip garden to work right after a few tries. I have put 12 Spider Plant pups into the garden because I had a lot of them from a large Spider Plant I have.

The garden hangs from a chain from the top. It just looks like the bucket is holding it up.

Each pair of cups has to have it's own 1/4 inch drip line with a tee to slit the line to each cup. You do this at each level.

You can see the six drip lines coming from the submersible pump. You have to use a bigger rated pump because of the 6 foot height. I will try different sizes and let you know the minimum size you can use.

Because of all the messy lines I will just wrap a towel around the top of the bucket to keep out the light to cut down on the algae.
I will redo the lines now that I know the garden works.
