  • It's getting colder out and I need to bring some of my tropicals in. I stumbled on this and I think I am going to give it a shot.


    ChopC. I might even get some of these for my passionfruit plants. What do you think?  A poor mans Living Wall

  • BB those are worth it, haven't tried myself but others have had success. Just have to manage the lighting and irrigation, maybe a drip tray at the bottom to avoid the overflow mess (I heard its easy to over water and spillover)? 


    Passion fruits will probably need a set of LED grow lights along the top, they are full sun species.



    Also if you had the time and DIY spirit, a sheet of industrial felt cold be a fun sewing project, can make custom size pockets for some of the bigger passion fruits.

  • will they create condensation on the wall? saw that they are breathable, but wonder if that would make whatever they are hanging against wet
