Vertical garden that I catch is a plant grown on an inclined plane such as walls, fences, racks, or anything that does not require a large width ground, actually making the core of this vertical garden is to get around the narrow area but still able to grow, creating a vertical garden from the use of high technology.
Many ways to make a vertical garden. Forms can simply use a planter box or with a cut PVC pipe. Something to consider when using the two mediums. Leave a gap between the walls of the planter or PVC, at least 5 cm. If not given distance would lead to rapid wall moss.
Appropriate irrigation system for a vertical garden is to use sparkle system. Water dripped through the water channel. Or you can also use the gel as a planting medium. The function of this gel will absorb water and is issued according to plant needs. Intensity need not be too frequent watering.
Type of Plants & Planting media
Plants that are used to make vertical gardens are usually in the form of vines. But not all types of plants can be used for vertical gardens. For example, bougenvile. Creeping type of plant can not be used as a vertical garden, because it contains elements of wood that make the plants more heavily. If placed at the height of the walls, planter boxes will not be strong to resist the load so that crops could fall. It is important to learn first vine properties before making a vertical garden that can be set on the available land.
Also make a vertical garden requires special growth media. The medium used in the manufacture of this park is generally a lightweight planting medium. For example, using fuel and cocopeat chaff. In addition to the planting medium, intensity of sunlight are also factors considered, although the sun did not appear to be too great a problem. Stay outsmart choose plants that fit.
If the solar intensity is less, just use indoor plant species, plant species, of course, would be more resistant if only for the intensity of sun exposure is minimal. Although the vertical garden requires extra maintenance, it could not hurt to experiment.
