Living Plant Wall

"It’s been on my plant checklist to have a Living Plant Wall so I’m delighted to finally put one through the ringer! This is installed in my home studio above one of my work desk: a welcome scenery to [what] once was a blank canvas of a wall. For this project, we're using the WallyGro Eco planters in White."

These are the colors, patterns and home design trends you’ll be seeing in 2019

"Things are quite literally looking up for plants in 2019 as Pinterest noted a 287 percent hike in searches for vertical gardens in its trends report. ...These wall-mounted gardens combine practicality (health benefits, growing your own herbs), bringing the outdoors inside in a dramatic way and a unique focal point to your home."

WallyGro Gardens - Installation and Care Instructions

"Vertical gardens are a beautiful way to show off plants, cover an unsightly wall, or create privacy in a courtyard. Because they are hung vertically, vertical gardens hardly take up any space. The WallyGro Vertical Gardening System is unique because it’s easy to install, completely modular, and very easy to maintain."

10 Statement-Making Vertical Garden Ideas

"Available in [twelve] brilliant colors, Wally Eco might be the simplest vertical garden planter out there. It’s easy as pie to mount, and the self-watering chamber makes irrigation a breeze."

Creating a living wall in your home

"WallyGro invented the Wally [Pro] Pockets system that can be attached to a wall, on top of each other to recreate a natural ecosystem. The pockets are waterproof and deep enough so all kind of plants can be planted in a vertical wall. The pockets also help plants maintain the necessary moisture, find enough nutrients in the soil and most importantly, have stunning living walls in our home, mess-free."


"Once you’ve scoped out a perfect location for your green wall, you can start thinking about the containers to grow it in. For a low-fuss option, Oakes is a fan of WallyGro’s pocket gardens, which affix to all different types of walls and have self-watering capabilities."

Living walls are growing on us

"It can take anywhere from one month to a year to construct a living wall, but the result can—theoretically—last forever. “[Wally] Pockets are designed to last as long as you,” says Kunst. “They are made from durable, 100 percent recycled milk jugs that can withstand the test of time.” As plants are living, breathing things, their lifespan depends on the care and maintenance that they receive, but if the need arises, a plant can be replaced."


"If you need more edible-wall guidance from a Reno designer, Nathan Brown’s company, Buds & Blooms, specializes in live walls, outdoor container gardens, floral arrangements for special events and weddings, and conceptual designs for small landscapes. Brown made a name for himself in the industry after constructing a 40-by-25-foot live wall at the Tesla Gigafactory in Storey County in less than 48 hours."

Office Planter Ideas for a more creative, productive & healthy life!

"We love the Wallygro Eco Planters & the planter stands. Every other week, we set-up an alert on our phone to put water in the reservoir in the back of the planter. Since the design of the planter allows the roots of the plants to receive water first, you water less. In terms of the planter stand, we designed this stand to work with the eco planters."

Self-Watering Planters That Will Help You Get a Green Thumb

"Self-watering planters take the guessing game out of the equation by giving the plants the right amount of moisture to grow. They’re also a great option for people who travel assuring plant owners that their plants will be taken care of while they’re out of town."

"So, I want to make the room into a sweet escape. I've always loved hosting.

So go vertical, y'all! I got some WallyGro living wall planters which are made from sustainable materials."
