The living wall part deux…

As the wall continues to grow, I continue to wrestle with the giant leaves that line the pathway, I don’t always win. It seems to be virtually maintenance free these days and I have to do little more than clear space once in a while. I’ve had a lot of luck with pendulous anthuriums on the wall and the little tree frogs that have colonized it. Somehow I’ve kind of started using the edge of the pond for an extra mist bench as it affords me an extra 30 ft or so of space. It would be wonderful to wrap the whole shade house with a living wall, but I suppose that since the bench space has to co-exist with the living wall, that will have to wait until I build another shade house…Ahem…
Actually I think I need some more mist benches for propagation. Plants root twice as fast if you can intermittently hit them with mist. In addition, I can grow plants I wouldn’t normally be able to grow because of the mist’s cooling effect.
