Buy new plants or condense your existing plant collection into a single self-watering system. Fun and easy for adults and kids. Grow just about any plant in Florafelt Vertical Garden Planters. This patented hybrid-hydroponic growing system lets plants thrive because their roots grow into the moisture in the felt. The innovative design routes water to the central layer and protects walls from moisture and keeps the front dry.
Mount to any wall, plug into standard 110v wall outlet (grounded), add water, set timer. System will automatically water plants daily. Add water weekly.
Do they get moldy? Florafelt Vertical Planters wick water through the back surfaces and become dry between watering cycles which keeps mold from growing.
Will my walls get wet? Vertical gardens can be grown indoors in water-proof prepared areas. Water collection trays at the base are needed to drain away excess water. The back of the wall is a solid plastic that protects the wall from water.
How do you attach it? Florafelt Vertical Planters can be hung from their top tabs with 2 hooks or nails. They can be more permanently attached with screws and washers behind the felt edges.
How far will the plants project out from the living wall? On average allow 12 inches. Mosses, Sedums or Grasses will protrude about 6" where as a Japanese maple might reach out 3 feet or more. It's best to keep larger plants trimmed back so they don't get too big. Tropicals and succulents are generally compact and easy to maintain.
Can I grow vegetables in a vertical garden? Yes. Vegetables and herbs work great. Choose the patio variety tomatoes and make sure they all have full sun. Lettuces also are great because they are off the ground and away from pests and rodents. Just be sure to use a light fertilizer each time you water.
How much should I fertilize a vertical garden? Adding plant food is a great way to make plants look their best. But adding too much food will cause plants to produce extra sugars and attract insects. As a rule of thumb, use very small amounts of fertilizer. When you added new plants, they usually come with time release fertilizer pellets in their soil. So this will feed the plants for up to 6 months or so. It is best to wait to feed until the plants begin to look a little pale, or hungry.
