The felt is made from recycled plastic water bottles, a non-toxic fiber that is indestructible and tough. Over time roots grow into the moist felt. Felt pockets stretch open to receive 4 to 6 inch potted plants. Each pocket is 10" wide by 6" deep.
Included Root Wrappers make it easy to change, arrange and handle plants. Hand water or connect to automatic drip irrigation systems. Create living walls of big or small.
Our innovative design routes water to the central layer and protects walls from moisture and keeps the front dry. Simply wrap the plants with the root wrappers in their existing soil and slide them into the pockets, creating your own wall gardens. Align multiple panels for massive living walls.
EASY TO MAINTAIN
It is only necessary to water the top row of pockets, letting the moisture spread to the lower levels. The microfibers provide a highly efficient grid to deliver water to every plant. Because water flows down, you don't have to worry about favoring the top row of plants over the bottom levels. Based on how much collects at the bottom, you will quickly learn how much water is sufficient for your vertical garden. Runoff can be collected in drip trays to be recirculated or drained away. If your living wall is outside, simply let the water drip to the ground.
DURABLE AND SAFE
Florafelt is hypo-allergenic, moth-proof, mildew and odor-resistant and contains no irritants or carcinogens. The backing board is a sturdy plastic sheeting extruded from polypropylene (HDPE). Its fluted ribs support both surfaces, making it light-weight, tough and abuse resistant. It is both chemical and water resistant.
