Question
cultivation on roofs
cultivation on roofs  
it is possible or impossible to grow crops on buildings i.e. concrete,cement etc instead of soil?if possible then how?

Answer
Narinderjt,
Impossible...If the seed did sprout it would dry out because it was exposed to the air.
From the looks of the picture there is soil under the green plants. You can be very successful growing plants on buildings, just make sure the pots are not too heavy and collapse the roof.
