Living walls are a beautiful addition to any home. They are versatile because you can create the design to suit your home and the size of the room. The key is to know how to plan your living wall design and how to take care of these plants.
Selecting a location
One of the first things you need to plan is the location of your living wall. Different plants require different living conditions such as lighting, temperature and humidity. Some do best outdoors while others prefer the indoor life. Choose the location of your living wall carefully for best results.
Best types of greenery
The types of plants you choose for a living wall display depend on the kind of look you are trying to create. The most popular ferns include the sword fern, maidenhair and staghorn fern. As for vines, the top choices include English ivy, rosary vine and pothos. You can even add some colour, you can include flowers like begonias, peace lilies, lavender and geraniums. Succulents are also very popular because they are so easy to care for.
If you want your plants to stay happy and healthy, you need to take proper care of them. You need to make sure that you water them regularly but do not overwater. Since the display is suspended, you don’t want water to drip everywhere. You will also notice that dust tends to gather on plant leaves so you should wipe them down from time to time.
Creating your own living wall with your favourite plants will improve the appearance of your room as well as the quality of the air in your home. If you have any specific concerns, you should look for a plant or two that will remove specific substances from the air and add oxygen.
