Well that was pretty basic , if you need complex you can call it Vertical Gardening Technology .

Face it , It's basic . what you put in you get out . Plant food is ok so is egg shells
copper pennies . iron nails , coffee grinds. The food you buy in the store is dead
not the case when you grow your own .
Enjoy
