When is the Tropicana Sale? I know Marianne listed a bunch, but it has to be coming up pretty soon. They sell a lot of tillandsias...that would be so low maintenance. Like Carol, I still thing the Broms look fantastic!
At the moment it is still lying down, until the plants get a little better rooted. The heavens have been taking care of watering it so far
I plan to hang it on the wall by my front door with a little spacer behind it so it won't rot the siding, but then I think I can just put the hose on it from time to time.
Reallyloveyouridea, Hetty! Great thinking. Your post has actually helped me work out another problem I have regarding some concrete work!!!! Thanks!

Name: Carol Noel Hawaii (near Hilo) It's all about choices.
There is another similar concept...using a wooden pallet: cover the back with weed cloth. Fill inbetween the slats with soil, plant whatever and then put it upright....vertical wall of plants. I don't know....
It seems fairly easy and I have access to half size wood pallets where I work. I really like how that one looks. Mine will not be completely vertical as I can't attach to a wall (renting) but leaning slightly back against the wall. It was mentioned not to plant edibles in this type of pallet as they're usually chemically treated to prevent insect damage. Another guy did plant but he used triple thick pockets made from landscapers fabric between the slat levels. If I get to use the narrower pallet which is about 2ft x 4 1/2 ft I could set the base of it in a long trough planter or one of those long troughs used to wet wallpaper in so a little more water can be drawn up from the bottom. Guess the fun will be in the experiment:lol: Anyhow, if I ever get this up and running I'll be sure to take photos and post them here.
