In today’s world, the dynamics have notably transferred with most people opting for an Indoor wall garden rather than the usual landscape gardening themes. This might sound shocking, yet we know that the most obvious reason is the lack of space to accommodate big plants.
We may not have the space to set up our own garden because we don’t have the stunning backyard we have often dreamt about. But this, cannot be the reason we miss out on having that garden we always wanted right?
This is why Indoor wall gardens have been regarded as the best solution. This modern solution is actually very aesthetic and serves as a good stand to grow a variety of small plants in a very cozy, yet gorgeous manner.
When we finally take the step to build our very own indoor garden, we also want it to be long-lasting. For this reason, let us explore somethings that will help you attain this goal.
The first advice when building an indoor wall garden is to decide on what diversity of plants would augment your home vibrancy. Try to choose the ones that would blossom more often so that your indoor wall garden looks stunning throughout the year and radiates regal beauty.
Watch out for the Weeds!
Ensure that the plants you pick do not attract much weed and require less water. After all, we do not want weeds to creep out and snuck upon your plant nutrition.
Irrigation and Water Supply
Ensure that you provide your plants with a good water supply. The irrigation system is very important and helps your plant grow when it is exposed to much of the sun and wind. The most common method used in this type of gardening is gravity drip wherein the top row of plants is filled first, and they slowly feed water to the flower pots and that way the entire indoor wall garden gets the water that is necessary for its survival.
Time of Day
The time of watering your indoor wall garden is also a very key aspect to its survival. The ideal time to water this system is either in the morning or int the evening. This way, the soil stays moist and can be sucked into the roots of the plants. If watered in the afternoon, due to the excessive sunlight and heat, the water gets evaporated and leaves the soil dry and the plants without any water.
Every few months
Check the climbing plants to ensure that they have enough density and if their growth level is accurate. Check if the plants have any signs of disease or any kind of a pest that could be attacking them. If so, use pesticides or insecticides and carry out the treatment that is required. Use fertilizers and nutritions for your plants. The wind can cause damage to your plants. Do check if the wind has caused any damage because tall plants are generally vulnerable to such damage.
Inspect the structures that hold your indoor wall garden and check for any damages or detachments that may take a toll on the plants and their structures. Check the drainage and irrigation system for any sort of flaws and fix if any is found. These flaws are usually not too big because the irrigation system does not handle any heavy plants and will therefore be in better shape.
Every few years
Change the plants depending and make changes if required depending on the species and its condition. Take into consideration, making major changes in the structure of the system. The changes can be made while the plants themselves are undergoing changes. It is also better to use plants that are small and can therefore be given full support by the structures that are available to protect the system.
