Great idea, now let's bring it in...

I would like to build such a tower to grow the strawberries indoors. A semicircular support structure, with a reflective material attached, then fluorescent tubes attached inside that. The tower would be suspended from the top of the structure with a heavy swivel, and thus the tower tube would be able to be rotated for access and light distribution. The hydroponic bucket would be stationary below, with the tube attached to the supports, and emitting from above. This whole assembly would, with luck, take up MAYBE a 2'x2' space in a corner. More than strawberries could be grown in it; spinach, lettuce, herbs, and more would no doubt do well...
