How to Mount a Suspended Garden
A hanging garden, as its name suggests, is a space in the house where plants are grown vertically. That is, they can be either placed on the wall or suspended by ropes in the ceiling.
The hanging garden can be made of different materials, everything will depend on what you plan to plant in it and the face you want to give the decoration, after all, the garden suspended will not by any means go unnoticed by the house.
For those who prefer a more rustic style can bet on wooden crates or pallet to compose the structure of the garden. Another suggestion is to fall into the sustainable wave is to mount a suspended garden using pet bottles, PVC pipes or milk cartons. In addition to contributing to the environment, you still save money, since such a garden is much cheaper.
Here are some small (but fundamental) details that can not get past the design of the hanging garden:
Every plant needs light, some more, some less, but it always has to have light. So give your preference to mount the garden suspended on a balcony or in a place that receives natural light.
But watch out for the sun in excess. Some plants survive only in the shade and if exposed to heat they can suffer from burns and even dry completely. Check the needs of the species you wish to plant before mounting the suspended garden.
2. Water and Adube
If you are the kind of person who forgets that you have a plant at home or spend much of the day outside, you may prefer plants that do not need watering and frequent fertilization, such as cacti and succulents.
Now if you can afford to pay more attention to the plants, you can opt for flowering species that require more care than the foliage.
3. Suitable vessel
The choice of pot is key, especially in a hanging garden. Prefer light ones, such as coconut fiber. If you wish to use a heavier vessel, such as cement, that is fine too, but in this case it is important to ensure that the vessel is securely attached.
Also remember to leave them at a height that does not disturb the passage and the movement of people.
