What could be superior to living wall art? Most home design stores and nurseries carry wall-mounted planters, or you may create your own with some used pots and mounts. Even though the majority of these planters are watertight, it’s a good idea to take them off the wall when it’s time to water the plants to prevent water from seeping through and harming the wall behind them.

Although technically applicable to any trailing or hanging plant, this technique is most frequently employed for staghorn ferns. Pothos, ferns, philodendrons, and hoyas are all suitable choices. The plant’s roots are secured to the board with the use of wire mesh, some earth, and moss for containment. Take the board off the wall to water the plant, then mist the root ball with a spray bottle.

Any trailing or hanging plant can be trained using this technique, though staghorn ferns are the most frequently used example. Pothos, ferns, hoyas, and philodendrons are all suitable choices. Along with some earth and moss to keep everything confined, wire mesh is used to hold the plant’s roots in place on the board. After removing the board from the wall, water the plant by misting the root ball with a spray bottle.

Once they are put together, succulent wall trays are a quick, enjoyable, and low-maintenance DIY project. They make a wonderful complement to any interior space of a home or can be mounted on a wall outside. Wire mesh should be fastened across the top of a shallow box (shadow boxes work well). The succulents can then be secured in place using soil and moss. Hang succulent wall trays on a wall that gets plenty of direct, bright light.

Some of your favorite plants can be displayed in creative and colorful ways with hanging terrariums. Succulents, cacti, and humidity-loving plants like ferns, ivy, and peperomia are excellent choices for terrarium plants. The cacti and succulents you use to make a terrarium will only need to be watered very infrequently. Regular watering and sporadic misting will help to maintain a high relative humidity in the terrarium environment for plants that prefer humidity.
