A Living, Breathing Wall of Plants - Right in Your Own Home!
April 19, 2012 at 11:11 AM

A wall in your house that lives and breathes and even purifies the air sounds like science fiction, right? But it's actually a simple and relatively inexpensive project you can do to "green" your home's interior. Watch the video to find out how!


Is creating a living plant wall in your home something you'd like to try? Or will you maybe add a few potted plants to your rooms instead? :)

    Personally, I'll stick to little cheap pots of greenery placed here and there because with my track record, I'd be staring at a wall of dead leaves in no time (no matter how easy it's meant to be, I have an unfortunate black thumb!). :P

    Having said that, I LOVE this idea, and if I ever figure out why I have such bad luck with plants I might give it a try! Especially in the kitchen - I'd love to be able to reach over to the wall and pick some salad greens or herbs even.

    I don't exactly have a green thumb either (mine is more brown than black though).  

    It's a neat idea, and I can imagine the beauty of it in any home.  But, I think I'll be sticking to my potted plants.

     That is so cool! I'm only good with things that are low maintenance like pothos ivy or spider plants, lol.

    Although we don't have a living plant wall, I do believe in having live plants in our home. They add to the atmosphere.

     Me too.  All of my plants are very easy maintenance.  Good thing too, since I forget to water them until they've started to wilt and look sick.

     Hahaha!  My dogs will eat them if they are too low to the ground.  My cat will as well.

    I'd love to do an herb garden.  I might just do something that I can keep in the house.
