Add Orchids to Your Living Wall

Orchid roots add organic interest

Orchids are added to the vibrantly colorful living wall at Young Dental in San Francisco. This wildly complex design has evolved using orchids and bromeliads along with philodendron cordatum. This custom recirculating system is made with Florafelt Grow Strip woven into a narrow 6-in grid. This allows for more complexity in the design and the use of smaller plant materials.

Orchids are simply pinned to the surface

Note how the orchids are added to the surface of the felt so the roots will only receive they’re preferred place of being close to a humid condition. First remove all the bark that normally comes with orchids. Then choose a location on the living wall where the roots can hang down to add a natural organic look. The orchid’s roots are held in place using support sticks that typically supplied with the plants. You can also use wire, pins or other creative means to support your orchids to the Florafelt material.
