Seawater within the structures evaporates, drops condense on the roof and then drip back down as fresh water to feed the herbs and vegetables. When it comes to sunlight, studies have shown that a majority of plants — although not seaweed — are dependent on the red spectrum in light for physiological development; the red can filter out at depths of around five to 15m.
To address this, the pods are submerged five to eight metres below the surface; they could potentially go deeper but more data is needed to work out the viability of this.
