The building blocks of a natural pool start with the design and must include an aeration system, phytofiltration, and some tiny cleaners in the form of snails, bottom feeders and fish. An aeration system brings oxygen into the water and can be done with a pump or with a waterfall. In a native pond that has occurred naturally, there is inflow from a stream or other source and outflow to a basin, lake or irrigation ditch. This creates a constant supply of fresh oxygenated water. A situated pond doesn't have these benefits and requires a source to bring the oxygen in for plant and animal health. Without proper aeration the pool will become stagnant, a breeding ground for mosquitoes and any life inside will not maintain health.
Keep your micro garden location in mind as you select your container. If you plan on growing in a windowsill, choose a container that fits in your windowsill. If you have grow lights, make sure your container is appropriately sized. You want your microgreens to have equal exposure to light.
All air plants anchor themselves with roots. If you see them growing roots, it's not because they want to find soil but because they have grown on cliff faces and in high-up tree canopies, where their survival depends on them staying put in a place where they can access water and sunlight
If your indoor garden is mostly dedicated to growing herbs or aloes,you might want to accent your pots and planters with a few well-placed air plants. Since they still need watering, you will be reminded to care for them every time you go to pull a sprig of basil or dill. Air plants are a great first venture into the world of decorative gardening because they're quite easy to maintain but also have an interesting and exotic look to them.
