Growing herbs in an aquarium?
My son wants to grow herbs indoor in his apartment at college. I don't think he has enough sunshine to grow them on a window sill. We have a smallish aquarium that he was thinking of using, that has a cover over it with a light.
Could he grow things that way? He was thinking of putting about an inch of gravel in the bottom, and then soil.
What kind of soil should he use? How deep of a layer of soil should he use? Could he use a soil-less mix? Should he ever fertilize them? What kind of light should he use?
Won't the plants get leggy if too far from the light?
He really wants to do this, so I hope it works out.
Thanks for your help!
