Create a green wall

One of the prettiest current plant trends is an indoor green wall, in homes, offices and cafes too.

From rows of plants in test tubes lining the wall, to complete plant coverage, there are numerous ways to go about it.

Here are some suggestions:
1. Decide where and how big. Assess the environment, and make sure there is plenty of natural light to encourage plant growth. Bright, indirect light is ideal for most plant walls.
2. Sort the style and design of the wall. It may be as simple as a DIY shelving system for pots to sit on, or an inbuilt, long-term, plant wall system, complete with timed water drippers, professionally designed and constructed.
3. Think about what plants will work best in your wall. Select low maintenance varieties such as pothos (Epipremnum aureum), philodendron, dracaena, and anthurium plants.
Ferns also work well. Make sure all the plants on your wall require the same type of care.
4. Plant walls need regular maintenance, and watering. A hand-held sprayer works well if you don’t have an in-built system. Regularly check your plants for bugs and disease, keep them clean, and prune them regularly.
