This melon grows in a sub irrigated planter. The white thing is the tube to refill the water reservoir in the bottom of the clay pot. You can see the construction shots here: http://goo.gl/HZiyU

+Maggy Meyer Ich denke mit einem Gewächshaus drumherum wie bei meiner Paprika würde es besser funktionieren.

What a wonderful idea! I love your construction shots as well. It's nice to have a reservoir so that you don't have to pay so much attention to watering these guys every day
 
+Erin Henderson Thanks a lot. I'm worrying a bit about the wicking area (because it's only crocheting yarn) but that should do fine like my small ones I made from PET bottles. 
I had got problems with both, too much and too less water.
