Re: A New Way to Grow Terrarium Plants
I think that if you were to put substrate on top of the false bottom you really would have drainage problems. Plus you would also loose the benefit of the modularity with easy removal and rearrangement of the plants.
I also would not recommend having the water up as high as the false bottom or the planters. I think you would just end up with a wet, smelly mess if you did that. The planters have a coarse organic potting media in them, which really isn't suitable for hydroponic growing. If it stays saturated all the time it will just start to rot and kill the plant roots. Trust me, I have killed a few plants already in those planters where they stayed too wet.
