I would like to have advices and informations about the feasibility of my little project.
I would like to create a table with plants in it.
I'm planning to carve a rectangle in my wood table in order to fix some kind of tray under. Then fill this tray with hydrogel beads and fix a LED strip all over the edges.
Then (here comes the point) I would like to have plants living in there !
But as the table still needs to be... A table ! I'll cover that hole with some glass / plexiglass...
So what could be your advice against that project ?
What kind of plants can grow only in hydrogel beads ? (Is there at least one ?) And which of them grow horizontally or at least not that tall because the tray won't be very tall ... ?
Here is a scheme of what I have in mind (Would be good if the tray was much smaller ... ) :
