They are very low-maintenance, will not leak and are an excellent new way of really giving plants more growing space.

The new way of working calls for flexible workplaces. Today, people often work in big, open-plan offices; alone or in groups, sometimes in consultation, sometimes in silence.

After water, light is the most important growth factor for a plant. That is why it only used to be possible to grow plants near a window, preferably a south or west-facing one.

In fact, with LED you can even create more light in your home than you would imagine possible in even the sunniest of Dutch winters. The major suppliers of LED lighting for plants are shown here.

Plants in aquaponics systems

An aquaponics or hydroponics system (with aquatic animals, but not fish) is a complete metabolism cycle in miniature. The plants use the waste excreted into the system by the aquatic animals as fertilizer and the aquatic animals live on the sugars the plants extract from the air. Besides being used for serious urban agriculture, aquaponics and hydroponics systems are also educational, and very interesting from a decorative point of view. What's more, they never need watering!

That need not necessarily be something you have to do every day. The latest systems use grit or hydro granules, which means the walls can go for up to four weeks without watering.
