Compost or worms in the tube down the center
Just a half a cup of worms in the beginning will give you excellent fertilizer and soil amendment. Near the bottom of the tube the worm-casted amended aerobic soil can be taken out and added to the tower. Kitchen scraps can also be used to amend your soil to organically fertilize your soil. There are holes in the bottom of the tower for drainage, you can catch this water and use it to water your tower all over again, t’s well worth it to not waste water, saves on your water bill, and the vertical tower plants are happy to receive water that may be amended from traveling down through previous scraps or worm casting or whatever your choice may be. Less nutrients and water lost is a bonus situation all the way around.
