ok, i saw this idea and thought i'd try it. what ya'll think

the person took one of those heavy duty storage totes (i have a few that could be used, one in particular), dug the hole, placed the rocks and such in a strategic arean, then used a cheap (under $50) pump and make it work. spent less than $50 dollars on the whole project. think i am going to try it using an old aquariam pump i have. wish me luck? i'll post pictures as it goes.

I've seen this on HGTV B4 on the home show in the mornings.was a few years ago.they took a christmas storage tote that was green& they even installed wood edgeing to the top.they had water plants and all was a indoor water garden.they set a brick(a pair of them side by side on sides) they did use a tabletop pump but wrapped bottom with batting as a filter(tabletops don't have filters).Walmart sells the plain pumps for $20 are labled as replacement pumps for pond use in or outdoors..they did a bog garden also in same type tote& a indoor planting bed(had soil in tote and sunk containers of the plant s in soil& even added a trellis with a vine.the secured it to tote& chalked the holes so no water leaks on floor or table.I am not sure if HGTV would still have in their project files or not.haven't seen no re runs of the home show
