Nestpot Farming - similar to hydroponics but easier to get right and easier to do organically
Nestpot Farming is a system of growing that combines the water saving properties of hydroponics with a wide choice of soil and soilless growing media. Two pots of different sizes are nested together to create a pot with upper and lower chambers. This nested pot "Nestpot" is placed in a shallow water source. The upper chamber, the larger of the two nested pots, holds a growing medium and a wick that extends into the lower chamber. The lower chamber, the smaller of the two pots, keeps the upper chamber from being flooded by the water source.
