Florafelt How It Works

Florafelt Vertical Garden Planter How It Works

The Florafelt System

  • Recycled nylon fiber felt.
  • Folded into planting pockets.
  • Stapled to a rigid plastic board.
  • Nylon Felt is made from recycled plastic water bottles.
  • Water wicks, holds, and releases moisture.
  • Roots grow into the moist felt.
  • Planting with some soil balances pH and stabilizes moisture.
  • Pleated felt design keeps moisture in the system and the front dry.
  • The soil breathes to host living microbiology and healthy plants.
  • Microfibers Wick Moisture
  • Our hand-made vertical garden planters are designed to use the micro fibers in nylon felt so that all the plants are watered equally. The felt is made from recycled plastic water bottles, a nylon non-toxic fiber that is indestructible and tough.

A Framework For Life

This amazing material provides a safe growing medium that is pH neutral and non-reactive, so you can garden organically right on your wall – it’s even safe for vegetables and herbs! Roots grow right into the felt, which comes alive thanks to the microbiology in the soil.

Swaddle Your Roots

Our planters come with our custom Root-Wrapping system. This lets you change and arrange your living wall at will, while maintaining the integrity of every plant in its own soil.

Roots grow through and into the moist Florafelt material.

Root Grow Into the System

Unlike other systems plants are not bound to their container. Our loosely woven felt allows for roots to grow into the moist felt system. At the start small hair like roots form which allow you to move plants around. Over time plant can grow to their full size and even spread through the system.

How To Use Root Wrappers

Chris Bribach, the inventor of the Florafelt System demonstrates how to use Root Wrappers. You can use more than one plant in each wrap to create interesting combinations. Filmed at the San Francisco Conservatory of Flowers in Golden Gate Park
