Another example of a wall installed at the same facility as the previous one–this one uses all pothos plants; jade pothos, the darker, and neon pothos, the brighter.
Designs like this aren’t actually that difficult to do, once you do a few of them. Trade secret: We map these out on the warehouse floor, with the plants, before we install them, that way we know exactly how many of each plant goes where ahead of time, and we’re not sitting there scratching our heads, trying to figure this out at a customer site!
Here’s an example of a mini living plant wall recently installed at Finivi, a new customer in Westborough Massachusetts. This is one of a set of three walls we installed.
We used aglaonema maria plants and neon pothos plants for this wall–two very different leaf structures and colors, to give it a nice contrast. Both these plants do well in medium to low light, the type typically found in offices.
One of our toughest and easiest plants, Zamioculcas zamiifolia. The ZZ plant! It’s thick stalks and leaves allow it to handle long periods of time without water. It can also tolerate low light areas pretty well. It’s no wonder it’s a popular plant among new plant parents!
It’s very important not to overwater these guys–they get root rot easily–so only water when the soil has had a decent amount of time to dry out. They like indirect light (in a room with a window, but not in the window) but also do well under flourescents.
