I’m no expert on plant nutrition or hydroponics, so I can’t vouch for the effectiveness of this idea or of the particular system, but aesthetically I really like these rotating hydroponic gardens with the plants growing inward. The idea is to minimize radiant losses from the bulb, which is the expensive part of an indoor garden to operate, and hence to maximize cost efficiency. The design saves on floor space, too.
