Hello,

I'm thinking about making my own Winogradsky column to place in a window 
sill at home. I hope to get it really beautiful so it's more a piece of 
art than "work taken home". My questions are:

- How do I maximise the numbers of colors I get?
- Can it be completely anaerobic? (I don't want it to smell.)
- When should I inoculate it? Is it better to do it in the summer than 
in the winter?
- Is there anything else I can do to make my visiting friends really 
like it?
