This Full-24 Pocket Floraframe has been thriving and evolving over the last 5 months. It’s only light source is a 50-watt halogen flood bulb about 3 feet from the panel that is on a timer on daily for 8 hours. It’s water is sourced and drained into a toilet’s fresh water holding tank (in the room just behind the panel). A small fountain pump connected to a plug in timer waters the panel twice a week for 15 minutes. All of the plants are using root wrappers and the plants are fed with MaxSea fertilizer once a month, manually added by watering can. You can definitely notice when food is added how the plants burst out with new growth. It has been a delight to watch the panel grow and add and occasionally change plants around.
The Floraframe total system includes the 24-Pocket Panel with galvanized frame and water tank, pump and timer. Shown here with a variety of tropical plants at Succulence Nursery in San Francisco.
These two vertical gardens are on display at SF Foliage in San Francisco. Each living wall measures 5-1/2′ wide by 8′ tall. The walls were originally planted in May of this year. After two months the walls have grown in with very little attention. Today we re-arranged the plants slightly to make some design improvements and add some fresh color.
The grey felt is hardly visible after 3 months of growth in the Floating Vertical Garden. the neon pothos are crawling up the sides and the bromeliads are getting covered over by the anthuriums. It’s a jungle in there.
PlantsOnWalls installed two living walls at SF Foliage. Each one measures 5′-4″ wide by 8′-0″ high. They each use 4 of the Full 24-Pocket panels filled with tropical plants. Root Wrappers were used to place the plants and automatic irrigation lines were installed for a drain-to-waste type system. Feel free to visit the installations at SF Foliage, at 1150 Phelps in San Francisco. Phone: (415) 648-4406.
