We purchased these plastic containers designed to plant and hang on the wall.
We didn’t have a suitable wall so we thought using posts with the trees as a backdrop would let us view them from our back porch and place them in enough light to make them thrive.
Much of my inspiration comes from 2 books by Debra Lee Baldwin that you too might enjoy.
I rooted the succulents directly in this container in April for this early June hanging.
With the rainy season starting we are more worried about too much water than too little. We considered a drip system for the dry season to water them. Succulents need little so little water and can go for weeks without it. I think we will determine if drip irrigation is needed before we install it. There are plenty of succulent varieties to make your own vertical garden project. Using succulents would mean the wall container doesn’t need to be very elaborate. I think you could hang pots close together and create some interesting effects.
The Spanish Moss hides the posts and blends in well with the moss covered plant stand holding the bromeliad planter. They are attached with 2 screws so I can take them down if we get a frost in the winter. It will be fun to watch them grow.
Below is an inspiring video of vertical garden images to get you thinking if this is something that will help you decorate your own space.
