What makes the house’s exterior green skin so unique is that it is a ‘living’ wall based on a hydroponics system. The ferns are wrapped around the structure and fed mechanically with a liquid mix of bacteria and need no soil base to grow. They get their nutrition drop by drop through 300 glass beakers full of especially prepared bacterial chemical culture mix while rainwater is collected to water the plants.Under its green wrapping, the house itself is made of concrete.
