Do you ever hear this? "We have no space for more plants" "We're running out of room" "The house is becoming a jungle". Or maybe you're worried about running out of space or the house looking cluttered. Maybe you have pets and/or children who are constantly grabbing at plants. Maybe, just maybe, you have too many plants. Regardless of your situation, we have the solution.
Let me introduce you to the idea of a vertical garden wall. There are quite a few pros to the idea. Such as:
- You can have it indoors or outdoors (or both)
- You can have even more plants (super important, we know)
- Less risk of them being chewed on or the leaves ripped by curious children and pets
- More floor space
- It looks absolutely fantastic and it's different to the usual spread of plants in other
There has been scientific evidence to show that plants grouped together thrive together - even in winter (we actually recommend grouping plants together in winter to help them get through the cold). By doing this, you allow the grouping of plants to create a mini-biome which makes caring for them easy and sustainable. If you have some more finicky plants that love extra humidity such as fittonia, calathea, ferns, and more carefree but still humidity-loving plants like monstera, snake plant, elkhorn, air plants, they kind of share the humidity amongst themselves as they leave little pockets of moisture in the air surrounding them.
Long story short, vertical gardens are destined to be THE next trend of the year.
