Sansevieria Bedroom Vertical Garden

Sansevieria is often called the Bedroom Plant. It’s one of the few plants that are active at night, converting CO2 to oxygen. This vertical garden was created with two Florafelt Recirc-33, for a total of 66 plants. To allow for better drainage and help prevent overwatering in the interior location, the soil was enriched with bark inside each root wrapper. Since the room has little light, high power LED spot bulbs nourish the wall in daytime hours, and pumps run for 30 minutes per day. The wall started as small plants that filled in over the past year without fertilizer, and they’re still growing. Look closely and you’ll see maidenhair ferns that joined the wall on their own.

Vertical Garden Window to Nature

A wall of plants is more than a beautiful home feature. It’s an entire community of living things. Together they have a life of their own and create a distinct personality. The leaves grow and move every day, creating a subtle but distinct change. It’a living ecosystem that’s complex and rich, and that’s why they draw our attention.

Getting to Know Your Vertical Garden

Touching your plants lets you know your living wall better. You can feel the raw power of life in each leaf. Interacting with plants reminds of the miracle of living things. Getting to know your living wall will also make the plants healthier and happier. For example, wiping leaves removes dust so they can breath easier. The surface of leaves absorb carbon dioxide from our breath and converts it to oxygen, which helps us breathe easier too.

Plants Give Back

Plants bring huge joy. We love potted plants in our homes and offices, but it's magnified with an entire wall. We spend most of our time indoors, so a vertical garden is a reminder of how important nature is for our well-being. It feels like an open window and lets us experience nature every day.

Inspiring Green Design

This living wall is designed by the architect and owners of this Noe Valley San Francisco home. With their construction team, they created a waterproof alcove with floor drains. An inset plywood surface was waterproofed with rubber pond liner, and Florafelt Pockets were mounted using deck screws. Irrigation tubing was added at the top, and water slowly drips to each plant. Full-spectrum LED lighting provides perfect light levels. A mix of philodendrons and others are were added to create dramatic green sweeps with subtle textures. Over the years, the plants were rearranged, and new species introduced. The Florafelt Pockets and Wraps system makes it easy to sculpt this well-loved living wall.

Florafelt Pockets Make it Easy

Affordable and elegantly designed synthetic felt pockets are mounted easily to walls. Once irrigation and drainage is in place they are quickly planted to provide you with an instant living experience.

Living Wall Installation

Lindsey Graves of Living Green Design used the Florafelt Pro System to create this living wall installation. Stainless steel grids were mounted to the wall then the water shield is inserted. For this install a custom recirculation system was added to use water from the pond below. Florafelt Grow Strip is then woven in then Florafelt Root Wrapped plants are added.
