Artificial Plants & Trees
Indoor air pollution and low humidity are now ranked among the top five threats to public health. Every day, while at work in our offices, we are constantly bombarded with toxic fumes from carpets, furniture, cleaning products, computers, printers and photocopies. At home, we strive to limit the amount of toxins we breathe in, but it is difficult and not always feasible to get rid of them completely.
Exposure to these chemicals can result in dizziness, nausea, respiratory complaints, blurred vision, or even severe allergic reactions. Unless resolved, this can often lead to poor concentration and even increase in sick leave. Placing air-purifying plants in our office and home can reduce these health complaints significantly.
House Plants do more than just brighten up a room with color and living energy. Along with being pleasing to the eye, they bring real health benefits to your body. Not only do complaints about headaches, stress, heart/circulation-symptoms and colds decrease when indoor plants are present, according to Dr. Leona Rogler in “The comprehensive office series,” but also richly decorating a room with plants can help to keep the air clean.
Although live office plants are well liked, situations and locations aren’t always suitable, if for example the areas are hard to access or have low light levels. In which case artificial plants are a good option, nowadays they are often so life-like that they look like the real thing and require very close inspection to tell them apart.

Artificial Plants Vs Real Plants: Which are Better for Your Office?
Posted by excitemediaSpoiler Alert: the real plants come out on top!
The first thing that draws most people to adding plants to the office to brighten up the space is the aesthetic appeal.
Plants look great! They’re bright, green and add a sense of life to a place that’s often known for unnatural light, freezing air-conditioning and awkward silences. Adding something to the office that is the exact opposite of all those negatives can create a positive atmosphere.
The next option is to decide whether or not to use real of fake plants. Artificial plants come with a lot of perks – they’re much easier to maintain and you’ll get all the same benefits – right?
The Pros & Cons of Artificial Plants
Artificial Plants: Pros
- Artificial plants require almost no maintenance at all. Apart from an occasional light dusting, they’re the epitome of set and forget. And in a busy office, do you really need something else on your to-do list every week?
- You’ll have almost the same amount of options when it comes to choosing artificial. There are so many different varieties available and they’re looking more realistic all the time. So the next time your clients come in for a meeting they’ll assume those plants are real, without having to touch.
- Worrying about what kinds of plants will trigger allergies for your staff members isn’t a concern at all. Whatever choice you make isn’t going to offend anyone sensitive in the office.
Artificial Plants: Cons
- Artificial plants mean that you miss out on many of the benefits of real plants – and there are a lot of them! From helping your employees to focus and be more positive to improving air quality, there are so many benefits you just won’t get with artificial plants.
- They can be really hazardous – in case of fire, silk or synthetic plants will ignite easier and can cause much more damage than necessary.
- They’re actually harmful to the environment. Plants are always associated with a healthy environment and helping the planet. But artificial plants do the exact opposite. They’re made of fabrics which are manufactured in large factories with lots of toxic dyes and a high output of pollution.
Artificial plants obviously have some great benefits in that they’re easy to take care of and make your office look a lot more inviting.
The Pros & Cons of Real Plants
Now let’s look at the pros and cons of real plants and how they can improve your office space and team culture.
Real Plants: Pros
- Real plants in the office will purify the office air and absorb toxins. It’s hard to believe and sounds like magic, but it’s true. NASA has found that potted plants help to remove impurities from air. Living in larger cities with more and more air-conditioning and chemicals in the air, you need all the help you can get in keeping your employees safe and healthy.
- There has been proven research that indoor plants relieve stress in the workplace. Studies have shown that plants create calm and restore wellbeing, reducing stress and even illness – so your employees can concentrate on what they do best and take less sick days.
- Indoor plants boost productivity! With your employee’s reduced stress and clearer air, memory retention and concentration can be boosted by as much as 20%. With this kind of boost it’s no wonder that workers show improved productivity – and will add value to your bottom line.
Real Plants: Cons
- Watering and maintenance – of course if you’re not opting for an indoor office plant hire service you’ll need to water your plants and make sure they’re getting enough light. Of course there are many benefits for caring for plants and many people find gardening therapeutic.
- Getting established indoor potted plants that are large enough to make a visual impact in your office can be expensive. Even just one nice plant can cost upwards of $100 – and if you’re buying from somewhere cheap they’re often not the best quality.
- Nothing is more depressing on a Monday morning in the office than being greeted with a dying plant in the lobby. While thriving plants can increase positivity and reduce stress, it only makes sense than the opposite will cause your employees to feel flat and unmotivated.
These are just a few of the benefits of real plants – there are many more that you can explore at the Prestigious Plantscapes blog. While there are cons to real plants, all of these can be combated with an indoor plant hire service. There’s no need to maintain the growth of your plants yourself, it’s a much cheaper option to use an all inclusive service so you can be sure that your plants will continue to thrive.
And the Winner Is…
Call us biased, but the plant type coming out on top is real plants! There are clear pros and cons to real and artificial plants – but if you want the real benefits of real plants without any of the hassle, the ultimate solution is an indoor plant hire service.
At Prestigious Plantscapes you’ll get individual design advice and recommendations from our team of design consultants and interior plant experts. We provide a complete solution including a tailored plantscape designed for your office with discreet installation and ongoing maintenance including watering, feeding, cleaning, pruning, replacement and pest control.
So you’ll get all the benefit without any interruption to your working schedule.

What’s So Bad About Artificial Plants?Houseplants have an archrival and it isn’t root rot or white mold or even your missed waterings. It’s fake plants—those unfortunate byproducts of our human obsession with greenery and the despair we have at taking care of it.
Fake plants are more than synthetic eyesores collecting dust in office windows and hotel lobbies. Like most artificial creations, faux foliage is a stagnant, uniform replica of something better—something curious, imperfect and alive.
Consider the Houseplant Have you ever thought about the unpredictable way your plants creep down bookshelves or wrap themselves around posts, twisting their stems and cocking their leaves up toward the sun? In contrast, artificial plants are lifeless, unmoving illusions of something else—always noticeably out of place in their environment because their natural habitat is a factory with molds, dyes and conveyor belts—not the comfort of your home. Faux greenery doesn’t need soil or water or sunlight to survive because it was never alive to begin with. But once they’re potted and placed in a corner, their presence feels like a taxidermied wild animal with glass eyes and empty lungs. But the replication of plant life isn’t all bad. The use of paper and textiles to depict nature is a human activity that dates back thousands of years: Egyptians painted reeds onto linen, Romans shaped leaves from metal, South Americans transformed feathers and shells into life-like botanical replicas and the Chinese folded rice paper and spun silk into flowers for the elites to decorate their hair. But those pieces were artful interpretations of nature and used in ways that real petals and twisted branches could not have withstood. Not Every Form of Plant Imitation is Created Equal Everything changed in the twentieth century when our fascination with plastic and the desire to wrap our interior lives in it took hold. The beginning of modern synthetic foliage took off in the 1960s with plastic and polyester production. One of the first mass-produced plant adjacent products was a nylon-based grass that mimicked a neatly clipped lawn. It was originally called ChemGrass then renamed AstroTurf in honor of the Houston stadium where it was first rolled out, before it was further developed by a company called Monsanto. Maybe you’ve heard of them. In some ways, AstroTurf seems like a distant memory of a bygone era found on the front lawns of untouched 1970s residences, but its fake prickly blades still exist, ironically in public outdoor spaces like Domino Park in Williamsburg, where stunted, scratchy patches of green lie fixed between living shrubs and flowers lining the sidewalk beside the lapping waves of the East River. Poser Plants Will Never Be Hip In an age of deforestation and a worsening climate, it’s time for plastic plants to disappear altogether. We need all of the living green we can get, not more imitations. Yet new startups are emerging that hawks custom-made wilted fake ferns and sagging succulents with nearly believable sun-crisped edges—as if artificial plants’ inability to fool the naked eye was their sole flaw and not something more fundamental.
Plants are more than cheap aesthetics manufactured in China from petroleum products that smell weird and are zombified to never decompose. If you think about the ideology behind fake plants, it’s one that values appearance over nurtured growth. Buying into this belief ignores why we’re drawn to plants in the first place—because they matter to our lives. They form the foundation of ecosystems on land and underwater and they create the air we breathe.
Plants Change Slowly Just Like Us Plants grow in stages and achieve milestones like we do. Instead of birth and death, college graduation and moving into a first home, their accomplishments are measured in sprouts and vines, colorful blooms and fresh shoots. Living plants can be plucked from the soil, rooted in water and potted many times over, whereas artificial plants are expensive and cannot give back. They stand in their pots forever, unblinking and unfeeling—until they eventually get thrown in the garbage. We love the aesthetics of plant life but that isn’t all that matters. Plants should be safe for the environment, for your home and your furry companions. Knowing where your plants came from and how they got to you matters to us and we hope it matters to you.
In a world of fake and seemingly perfect (or fake and slightly browning) things, that which is alive and a little wild bring us joy. Learning how plants look when they’re content and healthy versus when they’re thirsty or overexposed is a wealth of knowledge, but it isn’t rocket science—it just means that you take time to nurture the small, living things. The things that really matter.

Using office plants has been proven to increase productivity in the workplace. Next, let’s see how it works ⇓
How Artificial Office Plants Boost Productivity
Enhance work performance
One study indicates that “employees were 15% more productive when “lean” workplaces are filled with just a few houseplants, as employees who actively engage with their surroundings are better workers.” In other words, Having plants and trees around creates a positive environment, helping improve employee concentration and attentiveness.
Reduce feelings of stress and anger
In another study American Institute of Stress, 80% of workers are suffering from job stress. Moreover, 40% of employees said their job is “very” or “extremely” stressful. The researcher suggests that indoor plants have calming effects on your mood and pressure. Even artificial plants can keep you calm during these stressful situations in workspaces.
Contribute to better health
An author of The Rolling Nature says, “looking at decorative plants in their hospital rooms, patients recovering from surgery were reported to have lower blood pressure and less, pain, anxiety, and distress.” We think that it applies to artificial plants as well. Managers and employees all need an attractive, colorful, and relaxing space to make them feel better. Only good physical fitness can guarantee a quality workforce.
Generally speaking, artificial office plants provide a welcome respite from the busy workplace environment but don’t ask a lot in return. Even those with a green thumb are opting for these plants because of their irresistible charm, free maintenance, and other benefits.

Needless to say, the microclimate of the office does not always allow creating such a small winter garden. This is very difficult to do in the winter season, when the air is dried by heating devices, and when windows and doors are opened, they create wind and draft.
The most profitable option would be to buy and install a composition of artificial plants.They will not require watering, transplants, and even move with ease. Bloom will bloom in both winter and summer.

The plus is that thanks to modern technologies, it is very difficult to visually distinguish artificial and natural plants, it is real only if you touch them. Note also that artificial models do not require any kind of constant care. Your main task is to periodically brush the dust off the leaves.
Artificial flowers will become a real salvation for people who suffer from allergies. This question is very important for offices where a large number of people work, there are many visitors. It is difficult to know which of them have health problems.
Artificial plants are also distinguished by the fact that they can be easily combined with each other. Even those plants that in nature are, in principle, incompatible can be in one composition. You can create any, even the most complex and unrealistically beautiful project using artificial elements.
Remember that buying non-natural plants can save you money while using them. Of course, the initial one will have to pay a certain amount for their purchase, but keep in mind that such a purchase will last a huge amount of time, despite the temperature and humidity of the room in which it will be located.

The best unpretentious plants: photos and names
As we have already found out, flowers that do not require much attention are better suited for the office. Ideally, the plant lives on its own and makes employees happy. In this section you will find a list of unpretentious and shade-tolerant flowers.
On the table
Let’s talk about which indoor flowers are best placed on the tables in the office space.
- Oval fat woman, or “money tree”
Perhaps one of the most common crops in office floriculture.This is due to the simplicity of its cultivation and reproduction. The flower loves the sun, but can do well without it.
IMPORTANT! A new plant can be easily obtained not only from a part of a branch, but even from a leaf.
In addition, the advantages of the fat woman include its extreme unpretentiousness:
- grows on both sunny and northern windowsills;
- easily tolerates frequent drying out of the soil;
- can do all his life without feeding;
- does not require transplants;
- is easy to put up with a cramped pot.
But caring for her is still necessary. If not trimmed, the tree becomes too heavy and can turn the entire pot over.
To prevent this from happening, it is necessary to thin out the crown, removing unnecessary branches. The wounds from the cuts quickly heal, and after a month the fat woman is overgrown with new leaves.
The fat woman belongs to the so-called succulents. These are plants that naturally grow in arid climates and store water in the leaves or stem.
Like all succulents, the fat woman needs coolness in winter. But such conditions cannot be created in offices. In the summertime, the “money tree” must be watered so often that the substrate is moist all the time.
TIP! Regular feeding will be helpful. To do this, you can use the simplest liquid fertilizer based on vermicompost or a special fertilizer for cacti.
And if it is on the sunny side of the table, it may bloom.After all, the sun is the main condition for the flowering of this staunch green soldier.
Succulents are Spartans among a huge variety of plants. They need:
- any place on your desk;
- any, even not very fertile land with the addition of sand;
- Infrequent watering in winter and moderate in summer.
- Mexican cactus and succulent garden
You can save space by planting several succulents in one planter.Given their slow growth, a transplant will not be required for several years.
- Mammillaria cacti;
To prevent the roots of cacti from intertwining with each other and the roots of succulents, do not plant them in the same container. It is better to plant each plant in a separate small pot.
IMPORTANT! To create a composition, put everything together in one planter, suitable in size, on the drain.
The pots can be swapped or the plants themselves, which will add variety to your desktop.
There are many types of ferns that are great as office flowers. This unpretentious and shade-loving plant can grow even in a room without windows.
Most of the ferns need:
- at moderate temperature;
- in diffused artificial light;
- in high humidity.
The last drawback can be compensated for by abundant watering and spraying of the crown.
Among the unpretentious ferns, woodwardia can be noted. It grows both in bright light and in partial shade, which is important for working room conditions. The plant needs abundant watering and regular loosening of the soil.
Nephrolepis is an interesting fern. This plant is famous for its ability to cleanse the air from some harmful substances and pathogenic microorganisms.
TIP! To prevent a beautiful fern bush from turning into a plucked bush, you need to monitor the watering regime and not overfeed the plant.
When transplanting, a new pot is selected according to the size of the root system. Large containers on the desktop are useless.
Begonias differ in different, but always attractive patterns on the leaves.
- unpretentious to growing conditions;
- love partial shade, from the direct sun they can get burns of leaves;
- is easy to propagate with leaves and stems.
Begonia has been known in Europe since the 18th century. Thanks to selection, a huge number of forms and varieties of indoor begonias have been bred.
Deciduous or royal begonias are among the finest deciduous plants for decorating work rooms and offices.
THIS IS INTERESTING! Deciduous begonias are among the most beautiful and hardy of ornamental plants. Their popularity began in the 50s of the last century and has not subsided to this day.
There are a number of valuable varieties, the large and surprisingly painted leaves of which shine with many bright colors.
Royal begonias are perennial plants with thick, fleshy rhizomes. They can be preserved for many years if transplanted into new soil every spring. They grow successfully both in a small pot and in a large planter.
In addition to royal begonias, its varieties and crosses, there are several other types of herbaceous and perennial begonias, cultivated for the beauty of their leaves: from greenish to whimsically colored.
Keeping begonias in the office is not very difficult:
- the average year-round temperature should be in the range of 20-25 degrees, which is optimal for humans;
- moderate illumination, enough artificial light for growth;
- regular watering without overdrying the earthy coma;
- in winter, the potted plant should be removed from heating radiators;
- Feeding with any liquid fertilizer is desirable.
Begonias look good in shallow planters. You can create compositions from them by planting different varieties in one pot. They get along well with ferns.
Various branches, small driftwood or stones look very beautiful next to begonias. The main thing is to listen to your taste and know when to stop decorating a table garden. This flower will help you get less tired at work.
It’s time to discuss the plants that are placed in floor pots.As a rule, they are larger in size than desktop ones.
Monstera is a vine native to the Brazilian rainforest. She belongs to the Aroid family.
These plants in nature, before rain or after watering, seem to start crying – small droplets of moisture fall from the leaves. Therefore, sometimes the monster is called “crybaby”.
BTW! Monstera is traditionally present in many offices and public spaces.This plant thrives in artificial light without requiring direct sunlight.
It can be placed in any corner of the room where there is enough room for a large pot. The plant is shade-tolerant.
- fits into any office design;
- tolerant to dry indoor air;
- rapid growth;
- likes diffused artificial lighting;
- when planting in a large pot does not need further transplanting;
- is odorless;
- never drops leaves.
And the main thing. Thanks to its large leaves, monstera humidifies the air in the room in which it is located, purifies it and enriches it with oxygen.
Like a fast-growing liana, the flower takes up a lot of space. Therefore, it is imperative to take into account its size when planting in any office.
TIP! In a small space, you can grow a monstera in a shortened form by cutting off the top and rooting it in a pot with a mother plant.
Several plants will settle in the pot, which will look like a bush together.
Possible growing difficulties:
- waterlogging of the soil, which causes the leaves to “cry”;
- leaves have no cuts and holes;
- Profuse yellowing of leaves.
How to avoid them:
- Dry the soil in the liana pot and increase the intervals between watering;
- If young leaves are without cuts, then this is normal; an adult plant in such cases requires additional feeding;
- Spray the leaves of a houseplant, especially in winter when the central heating is turned on.
In everyday life, sansevieria is known as “mother-in-law’s tongue” or “pike tail”. This is an unpretentious shade-loving plant. Its “official” look will accentuate the business atmosphere of any office and workroom.
No wonder sansevieria is constantly present in photographs of premises for official and business meetings. Her presence in the interior brings order to the work schedule and to the business spirit of the employees. Read this article on how to build credibility at work.
- any lighting is suitable – direct sunlight and indoor partial shade;
- does not lose its decorative effect under any growing conditions;
- is able to easily withstand temperature changes in the room.
Some tips for keeping:
- An ideal location for a flower would be near the east or west window. With constant partial shade, the leaves of the plant acquire a dark green color (which does not spoil it at all), losing a bright edging along the contour of the leaves, if there is one by belonging to the variety.
- Watering the “pike tail” should be rare and not plentiful, because overflow threatens to rot the roots. It is worth paying attention so that water does not fall into the center of the flower’s rosette.
- When the room temperature drops, watering can be replaced by wiping the leaves with a wet cloth or spraying.
- Be careful not to overgrow the roots as they can break the pot.
- The plant should be fed rarely, no more than once a month, with liquid fertilizer for cacti.
- The flower is not damaged by pests and diseases, so there is no need to worry about protecting the plant.
The color and length of sansevieria leaves depend on the plant variety. The variety of appearance allows these plants to be placed both on the floor in flowerpots or floor containers, and to grow on the table in pots.
IMPORTANT! Since the leaves of the flower grow directly from the rhizome, it can be easily propagated by simply dividing the bush.
A transplant is required when the plant has mastered the entire space of the container with its rhizome.Wide pots with good drainage are required.
In addition to its attractive appearance, this succulent (and sansevieria belongs to succulents) has a number of useful properties:
- cleans the air from household toxins, which are full of a modern office;
- saturates the air with oxygen;
- with its appearance soothes the human nervous system, making it easier for you to concentrate on work.
When choosing flowers for the office, many opt for spathiphyllum.He is a distant relative of the monstera and belongs to the Aroid family. But if monstera is a tropical vine, then spathiphyllum is a moisture-loving tropical plant native to Colombia.
Women’s happiness, as it is also jokingly called, enchants with its glossy lanceolate leaves on high petioles.
THIS IS INTERESTING! During prolonged flowering, flowers with white covers and cobs stand on long legs over the entire crown of the plant. When flowering, the bedspread acquires a green color, which looks rather unusual.
- It is best to place the flower in partial shade, as it can burn the leaves in the sun. It is also not worth placing it in full shade, so that the leaves do not become smaller.
- Spathiphyllum is a water loaf of the green world. It is necessary to water with settled water at room temperature, mainly in a sump. The plant itself will take as much water as it needs. If watering is done on top of the flowerpot, then at the bottom during planting it is required to put a good drainage from expanded clay.
- The flower is afraid of drafts, so you should not place it under the air conditioner and next to it.
- beautiful aesthetic appearance;
- rapid growth in a flowerpot;
- needs diffused lighting;
- transplant no more than once a year;
- does not require frequent additional feeding.
BTW! The plant’s exactingness for frequent watering can hardly be attributed to disadvantages, but it is worth remembering this.
Spathiphyllum reproduces by simple division of the bush when transplanting in the spring.
There is one simple but effective way to stimulate flowering in spathiphyllum throughout the year. It is enough between planned watering (after 3-5 days) 2-3 times to dry the earthen ball so that the leaves of the plant wither slightly.
But the complete drying of the leaves must not be allowed, otherwise the plant will recover for a long time, and we will not see flowers for many months.
Although the flower is a little capricious because of the water, it does an excellent job of cleaning indoor air like no other.This makes his presence in the office a must.
Finally, on to the list of trees suitable for office interiors.
The influence of ficuses on a person is akin to the work of a psychotherapist: they help to reduce the level of irritability and improve mood.
THIS IS INTERESTING! In terms of growth rate and decorative appearance, ficuses hold the palm among tropical plants that have taken root in rooms and offices as gardeners of indoor space.
They are characterized by an evergreen crown with hard shiny leaves. But when the air temperature drops or the plant pot is moved to another place, leaves may drop.
- Ficuses like a bright room without direct sunlight. In offices in winter with artificial lighting, ficuses feel quite comfortable. This applies to Benjamin’s ficus and rubbery ficus. All variegated forms contain less chlorophyll in the leaves and therefore need a lighter location.
- As a floor tree, ficus fits seamlessly into any office space, large or small. They say it lures money and success to its owners, which is why it is so popular in business centers.
For ficuses in office premises, crown shaping and pruning is required. If you plant several trunks of ficus with flexible trunks in one pot (for example, Benjamin’s ficus), then you can intertwine them with a pigtail.
IMPORTANT! With a lack of light, a significant stop of growth can occur, which must also be taken into account when locating ficuses.
- excellent appearance of indoor wood;
- has high phytoncidal activity;
- is indifferent to indoor air humidity;
- does not require direct sunlight;
- is easily propagated by cuttings.
- dislikes moving the pot from place to place;
- requires careful watering;
- large leaves should be dust-free.
Majestic and graceful single-stemmed trees are slender and will attract the attention of any visitor or office worker.
Among the unassuming pinnate palms is chamedorea, somewhat similar to bamboo.
They are so accustomed to indoor conditions that they often even bloom indoors. They should be attributed to the most unassuming palms that are used for landscaping premises.
- noble appearance;
- undemanding to the soil;
- humidification of the ambient air.
- needs sunlight, full shade is contraindicated;
- regular watering in winter and summer;
- has a hard time transferring.
They are mistaken for palms, but dracaena can compete with them for popularity.
BTW! Large size of plants does not spoil their lightness and originality. Due to its appearance as a kind of graceful palm tree, dracaena decorate the interiors of any office or study.
- resistant to temperature changes in the room;
- calmly endure temporary drought;
- take up less space than palm trees.
- need sunlight, requires location near bright windows;
- need illumination in winter;
- requires crown formation to shape the plant.

90,000 Vertical garden +100 photos in an apartment, office, plot with your own hands
Man has always been aware of himself as a part of nature, he is inextricably linked with it. These are single and indivisible concepts. The desire to be closer to the natural habitat is visible in everyone, which is manifested both in the established traditions and in the cultivation of indoor plants within the walls of your own home.We install flower pots, hang wreaths on the door, organize a vertical garden in the apartment, and grow ornamental trees. It brings a feeling of calmness, serenity, harmony with oneself and the world around us.
Types of vertical landscaping and their features
Greening vertical surfaces – a simple and affordable option for decorating walls. Flowers allow you to realize any design ideas, create a unique interior. With the help of a wide variety of plants, differing from each other in shape, leaf color, flexibility, photophilousness, growth rate, and other parameters, you can create unique compositions, make each of them individual.
Fitostena is a vertical structure designed for interior landscaping. Live, dry, artificial plants, as well as stabilized moss and flowers are used as greenery. All of these types can be combined with each other. The size of the eco-wall varies from 0.5 m² to 10 m² and more. If desired, it can be equipped with a built-in automatic irrigation system.
There is a wide variety of eco-constructions. They differ from each other in different ways:
- Form.Plantings can be given absolutely any shape, be it a square or rectangle, an inscription on the wall, they can also have the form of an arch or column, repeat steps, and other unusual and complex images.
- Irrigation system: drip and flow. In the first case, water is supplied to each plant through tubes that are connected to a single tank. In the second version, the liquid is supplied to the top of the phytowall, from where it flows freely through the sections, irrigating each shelf.
- Method of planting placement: “pocket” or carpet, modular, shelf or container.The first option is a structure consisting of a strong frame to which fabric with pockets is attached. For the organization of the second model, special plastic phytomodules, manufactured industrially, are used. The third type is represented by homemade wooden, metal, glass shelves on which the pots are located.
- Module view. Fitokartina is an autonomous, closed suspension module of a small size with wide body walls. Phytomodule – allows you to make compositions of different sizes from fresh flowers.The main feature is the ability to combine several nodes to create an eco-wall that can be extended both in height and in width.
- Mobility. Stationary walls are mostly one-sided. Movable options are two-sided, often used as a partition to divide the space into functional zones.
On the ground
Growing method is another distinctive feature of phytowalls. There are two main technologies for growing live plants: on the ground, in hydroponics.Let us dwell on the first option in more detail. This method allows vertical gardening in the usual way, by planting crops in nutrient soil, which is filled in ceramic pots or plastic blocks.
Watering in such designs can be both automatic and manual. If the height of the eco-wall does not exceed 2 – 2.5 m, then there is no need to install automatic watering, it is enough to water the plantings with a watering can once every two weeks. In the absence of an automatic irrigation system, you can independently maintain phytowalls, clean them from dry leaves, dust, add fertilizers, etc.
The use of fertile soil masses in the organization of vertical gardening is typical for the countries of the post-Soviet space. This is primarily due to the cost of hydroponics-based technologies, as well as the mentality, because plants growing on the ground feel better, live much longer. In addition, we have a lot of land resources, and it costs significantly less than in Western European countries.
Maintenance of eco-walls on soil is much cheaper.Among the advantages, one can also highlight the fact that all structures are collapsible, they consist of block-pots filled with soil. They are quickly assembled and disassembled, and the transplantation of crops can be easily done by hand. However, it will not work to organize complex patterns, unique compositions, unthinkable patterns.
Plants are grown without soil. Their root system is placed in felt or plastic containers fixed on a vertical base, and power is provided by automatic irrigation, the nutrient solution is supplied through tubes.Hydroponic phytowalls predominate in European countries, since indoor flowers are grown there on an industrial scale, and they are very cheap.
It is impossible to grow live plantations in artificial environments without automatic irrigation. The design is completely dependent on electricity. In the event of a prolonged power outage, pump breakdown, plants can die. Also, the system requires periodic maintenance, which cannot be performed independently, it is necessary to invite a specialist.
One of the main disadvantages of landscaping can be called the short life of plantings, which varies within 3-6 months. Also, the structure has a rather complicated way of assembly and disassembly. Plants are planted directly on site, and only after the complete installation of the entire system. All of these factors have an impact on the final cost and subsequent costs associated with crop replacement and maintenance.
Unlike eco-walls, organized on the ground, models on artificial environments allow you to place flowers in any position without observing geometry, to make unique compositions.Also, the development of greenery, its growth occurs many times faster, since there is no need to develop a large root structure. However, it will not be possible to achieve the original smell inherent in plantings grown on the soil.
Advantages and disadvantages
Among the main advantages of eco-walls are its decorative properties. With its help, you can make an accent in the room that will attract attention. Green compositions allow you to revive any, even the most unassuming room, it will look fresh, elegant, noble.Also, vertical gardening has a number of advantages, which are expressed in the following:
- Air purification. Plants absorb harmful substances in the room, which enter it through open windows, and are released from finishing materials and furniture. Phytowalls are a natural filter.
- Destruction of viruses and bacteria. Plantings cleanse the air from harmful microorganisms.
- Humidification. Plants concentrate and evaporate water, increasing the relative humidity, as a result, the most suitable microclimate for life is established in the house.
- Oxygenation of the apartment. If the air is saturated with oxygen, then a person breathes easier, also in such a space he rests better, sleeps better.
- Improved brain function. As a result of the studies, it was proved that in rooms where live plants are installed, people can concentrate better, and their efficiency increases.
- Decrease in temperature. Due to the absorption and evaporation of moisture, green spaces naturally lower the temperature, which is especially important during hot periods.
- Sound absorption. Greenery absorbs sounds and vibrations from the wall on which it is located.
- Zoning. With the help of eco-walls, you can divide a room into several functional zones, mobile structures are especially relevant for these purposes.
- Disguise flaws. Behind the phytowall, you can hide engineering communications, surface defects made during finishing.
- Space saving. There is no need to install flower pots and vases all over the house, occupying all the free corners.
- Environmental safety. This is the cleanest type of decoration that is suitable for any room, including children’s rooms.
- Stylish combination. The design is suitable for all directions, be it high-tech, loft, eco, country or others.
- Unlimited design possibilities. Unique compositions will make it possible to decorate any place in the house in an original way.
Vertical plantations and disadvantages are not without, among which are:
- Dampness.The phytowall is constantly in contact with water, and it also emits moisture itself, so the wall on which the object is located will damp.
- Additional costs for electricity and maintenance. This only applies to options with an automatic irrigation system.
- Complex installation. Installation requires professional skills; doing the work yourself is problematic, and sometimes impossible.
Where to equip a garden
Vertical landscaping is a part of wildlife that can be placed in almost any room, even in the bathroom and toilet.It is not only able to become a decoration of the room, but it will also bring psychological pleasure, it will purify the air, saturate it with oxygen. This decor is lovely to look at. When observing, you can see how plants grow and develop, how they bear fruit, how the wilting process takes place.
The choice of options for phytomodules, irrigation systems, the correct organization of lighting is carried out based on the characteristics of the room where the green wall will be installed.Firms engaged in the implementation of ready-made structures have entire catalogs in which, from a photo or video, you can select cultures that correspond to the existing style of the room, the shape and size of the eco-wall.
In the living room
The hall is usually a fairly large room. This is the central room in the house that gets the most attention. It fully reflects the impeccable taste of the owners of the house, should be the standard of quality, therefore, it is necessary to approach its design very responsibly.The living room should not be overloaded with a huge amount of decor, which will eventually turn into rubbish.
The hall should be functional, spacious and comfortable. All these requirements are fully met by vertical gardening. It allows you to emphasize the individuality of the room, it can become a stylish accent in the overall interior. Here you can create mixed compositions from large and small plants, use climbing crops, organize whole panels from phyto-pictures.
The choice of plants primarily depends on the location.If the phytowall is installed near the window and a lot of sunlight falls on it, then photophilous crops are chosen, regardless of the presence of additional artificial lighting. If the area is practically not illuminated by the sun, preference should be given to shade-loving options.
In the bedroom
The room is primarily intended for relaxation, so the atmosphere in it must be safe. A favorable climate is very important here, the quality of sleep depends on it. These factors must be considered when choosing suitable crops.First of all, you should abandon plants that have a pronounced odor, intoxicating aroma, from species that cause an allergic reaction and emit toxic substances.
It is also worth paying attention to the fact that living plantations intensively absorb oxygen at night, saturating the air with carbon dioxide. In order not to constantly feel oxygen starvation, dizziness in the morning, feeling unwell, you should not turn the room into a greenhouse. It is enough to place a small phytomodule here, or install one floor container shelf.
For the bedroom it is necessary to choose slow-growing plants, with small buds, or none at all. In this room, such types have proven themselves as: spathiphyllum, which cleans the air from harmful substances; fern with healing properties; aloe that absorbs formaldehyde; laurel, which soothes and promotes sleep; geranium, which secretes phytoncides useful for human health.
In the kitchen
The kitchen area is a favorite place for the whole family, food is prepared here, evenings go by with long conversations.The room is almost always located on the sunny side, it is the warmest in the house. Moderate humidity is observed in it, constant ventilation is carried out, so different plants and flowers can be grown in the kitchen, which are used to organize vertical landscaping.
Due to the increased temperature, in comparison with the rest of the space in the house, thermophilic varieties should be selected for the room, for example, anthurium, begonia, coleus, and others.If the eco-wall is located near the window, a lot of sunlight will fall on it, then preference should be given to light-loving species, such as pelargonium, dracaena, azalea, monstera, chitira.
It is strictly forbidden to install a phytowall near a refrigerator, oven, gas or electric stove.
Selection of plants and their characteristics
Any suitable plant can be used for vertical gardening. The choice of options is large enough.It can be both perennials and annuals, decorative deciduous or flowering specimens. Miniature shrubs and mosses, various herbs are suitable. Starting to work on the organization of space, first of all, it is necessary to determine their characteristics, to create a visualization of the future wall composition.
A climbing liana rises on aerial roots. All 25 species take root well in apartment conditions, do not stand out for being whimsical.A suitable temperature is 18 ° C, in winter it is within 12 ° C. Scindapsus likes bright light, but in direct sunlight it slows down growth and turns yellow. To keep the leaves bright, greens should be sprayed daily with soft water. Fertilize the plant in moderation. The suitable period is from May to October, when the phase of active growth begins.
Beautiful scindapsus, in addition to its visual appeal, has a lot of useful properties. It creates a comfortable psychological environment, has a beneficial effect on the metabolism.If you place it on a plastic panel in the kitchen, you can feel a daily burst of energy, an additional pleasure from eating.
The ornamental plant looks like a shrub. Large, oblong leaves are located on short, dense stems. The ideal temperature for thermophilic aglaonema is 20 ° C, in winter it can be lowered to + 15 ° C. Such flowers are undemanding to lighting, I can grow freely in partial shade or in bright sunlight. Massive leaves require frequent spraying, and the soil needs to be moistened.The recommended feeding frequency is twice a month, during the period of active growth.
The evergreen perennial has about 22 species. The most suitable for vertical structures indoors are Maria, Red Diamond, Silver. Aglaonema is ideal for a vertical plant stand in a study or living room. It helps to improve performance, helps to fight stress. The plant purifies oxygen in the room, saturates it with air ions.
Herbaceous perennial has an unusual color of the leaf plate. Oval leaves are decorated with streaks and red spots. Depending on the variety, this feature may change, acquiring a different shade. A heat-loving indoor flower feels comfortable at a temperature of 20-25 ° C. This indicator must be stable, otherwise the plant will quickly lose its attractive appearance. Also, do not place the vertical composition in a draft.
It is better to place a stand with arrowroot in the bedroom.The plant has unique energy, is able to improve internal well-being, and has a beneficial effect on sleep. With proper care, the flower will delight with its unique appearance all year round.
The tropical evergreen plant is also called female happiness. The main feature of spathiphimum is the absence of stems. Large oval leaves and arrows with graceful flowers grow straight from the ground. The ideal growing temperature is 22 ° C, in winter – not lower than 15 ° C.Vertical flower beds are best placed in partial shade, away from direct sunlight.
Florists do not recommend to abuse Spathiphimum when collecting the composition, since their foliage contains a poisonous substance – calcium oxalate. In large quantities, it can irritate the mucous membranes. Of the useful properties, one can note the ability to cleanse the air from harmful substances, toxic elements.
Such an ornamental-deciduous plant is not often used in vertical gardening.This is prevented by the special shape of the tree and the need for careful maintenance. Dracaena feels good at moderate temperatures, in winter it can even survive a cold snap up to + 12 ° C.
Since dracaena has the ability to purify the air from harmful compounds, it is better to use a stand with indoor flowers in the kitchen. Long leaves of the plant require constant care. To prevent dust from accumulating on them and not to spoil the appearance of the green panel, they should be wiped daily.
Varieties with bright red inflorescences are suitable for growing on the stand. But it should be understood that such exoticism will delight households for a very short time, it will not be easy to grow a plant. Anthurium is suitable for a standard temperature regime, like most plants on a vertical gardening stand. In winter, it is better to move the panel with flowers to the window, and in summer to shade.
The flower of male happiness attracts good luck to the house and contributes to the creation of a strong family.Anthurium in the composition perfectly coexists with all plants, helps to fight depression.
This exotic flora has spectacular orange blossoms. It is great for upright posts in an apartment or garden. Tenacious roots hold tight to the soil, so the flower can be in any position.
Guzmania loves warmth, so it should be placed closer to the window opening, but not under the scorching sun. Top dressing is necessary during the flowering period.For this, liquid mixtures of organic and mineral substances are poured into the ground. Bright flowers can not only improve the indoor climate, but also activate energy.
This beautiful vine from the grape family is ideal for a green stand as an ampelous plant. In favorable conditions, it pleases with rapid growth and the appearance of umbrella-shaped inflorescences. Quite a whimsical plant does not tolerate sudden changes in temperature, drafts. If watering rules are not followed and unfavorable conditions are created, all foliage quickly flies around the cissus.
A plant with accelerated growth needs periodic pruning. It is better to remove excess shoots and carry out a clothespin in early spring. The most suitable species for home cultivation are Antarctic Cissus, striata, multicolored, rhomboid.
Evergreen vines are distinguished by their endurance and unpretentiousness. Depending on the species, the leaves of the plant can be dark green or variegated. Some have protruding veins.It is necessary to use ivy in prefabricated flower arrangements carefully, since they have airy, rapidly growing roots. Highly sensitive tendrils at the ends of the shoots feel the support and move on to other plants.
In order for ivy leaves to always have a juicy green color, the stand with the flower arrangement must be constantly exposed to diffused light. The soil can be any other than clay. Ivy must be pruned twice a year.
An absolutely unpretentious indoor flower can remain unattended for a long time and decorate a vertical panel.To do this, you can use any of its types, but varieties with curly stems will look better.
It is better to grow a philodendron in partial shade, away from direct sunlight. Drafts and air temperatures up to 25 ° C should not be allowed. On dry summer days, foliage should be sprayed or wiped with cool water.
Growing plants with variegated color of leaves, it should be understood that they need more sunlight than monochromatic.
A bright herbaceous plant in the form of a shrub has powerful succulent stems and foliage of interesting color.It is because of these qualities that it is often placed on a vertical bed in an apartment. Each leaf of hypoesthesia is covered with spots of pink, white, burgundy.
An unpretentious plant gets along well with all companions in the composition, but it also needs special care, a specific microclimate. The rapid growth of the flower will have to be kept under constant control.
Representatives of ferns are often used to decorate vertical stands.They are distinguished by lush greenery, bright green color and dissected leaves. When decorating stands, the following types are often used:
- Maidenhair. A fast-growing plant with many oval-shaped leaves. It is popular with florists due to its high decorative effect and accelerated growth;
- Nephrolepsis. The feathery leaves of the sprawling lush fern are collected in rosettes. Openwork foliage departs from the rhizome itself;
- Paronychia. Miniature plants grow rapidly and fill the entire space of the vertical flower bed.Such a background is great for bright flowering representatives;
- Deer horn. A plant with interesting leaves of a spore-bearing and sterile type will perfectly fit into a fern composition for landscaping.
What to build and how to create a vertical garden
The popularity of herbal gardens lies not only in a powerful impression, but also in the special properties of such a decor. Small structures will fit perfectly in small rooms and dilute tight spaces.Massive shelving will be a good option for zoning a spacious room. Any vertical flower bed is easy to assemble with your own hands.
Three systems for creating a structure
The device and method of fastening suspended flower beds can be conditionally divided into several types. Choose a suitable one depending on the type of plants, the size of the room, the design itself and the task that the green decor will perform in the future. Hanging garden systems can be as follows:
- Modular.A vertical plant rack is made of metal, plastic boxes, special fabric pockets. Each group of plants is planted in a separate module, then they are collected and fixed on the surface.
- Carpet. On a one-piece textile floor, many pockets are made of polymer film, filled with soil and plants. In order not to overload the structure, it is better to use small flowers and herbs.
- Container. Special containers (pots, boxes, pots) are attached to the wall, filled with soil and planted with plants, aromatic herbs and even vegetables.
From polymer textile fabric
Making a carpet garden according to P. Blanc is suitable for apartments and outdoor spaces. The required number of pockets must be formed on a large piece of polymeric felt cloth. This can be done in several ways using the bend method. The fold is glued with special glue, sewn on or fixed with a stapler.
Then the canvas is attached to the waterproof surface and transferred to the wall. It can be any metal stand, plastic panel, thick film.All pockets are filled with soil mixed with fertilizer and the plants are planted. Watering can be done manually or using drip irrigation systems.
From metal mesh with cloth containers
It is easy to make such a bed from the remnants of a chain-link mesh and small containers. The base can be placed along a wall, fence or rolled up. The section diameter is chosen taking into account the type of plants and their characteristics. The mesh background can be masked with straw or left as it is.Then the containers are tied to the cells with wire and filled with soil. The boxes can be of the same size and diameter, or have very different shapes.
The method of placing containers on a grid is the most practical and versatile. The flowerpots can be attached to any base. The material of their manufacture is not important. For step-by-step connection, clamps, wire, fishing line, strong rope, adhesives are used.
Wooden supports for a vertical garden can be placed anywhere on the site.Long beds are formed from the slats, fill the voids with earth and place any plants that can take root in such conditions. A massive timber structure can be used as an additional wall, install them near the gazebo, recreation area. When choosing this type of landscaping, it is necessary to take into account the number of plants. The more of them, the more time it will take to care, watering, feeding.
For climbing plants, you can make a wooden trellis on supports according to special instructions.This option is especially suitable for specimens creeping upwards. When the greenery grows enough, this decor will create excellent shading, hide what is happening in the area from prying eyes.
Ordinary pallets are suitable for creating original garden decor. It is necessary to remove every second crossbar from the structure and nail it on the other side. As a result, you get a flat two-sided staircase. Between the boards, you need to make textile layers, fill them with soil and dig in the plants.
The original idea of creating a vertical flower bed from pallets is a chaotic installation of identical pots on the surface. Plastic pots are screwed to wood with self-tapping screws or fastened to metal staples.
The pallet also makes an excellent stand for miniature plants. The burlap must be attached to the inside of the product with a stapler. Sheathe the perimeter vertically with a thick foil. Fill the pallet with earth through the side hole.We make small holes in the burlap, place the plant.
From plastic bottles
To create a simple and original design, you will need a lot of plastic bottles. They can be positioned horizontally or vertically. The first option involves cutting through the side part; in the second case, only the lower part of the container is needed.
Plastic bottles will make an excellent imitation of a hanging tropical garden. Any representatives of the bromeliad family, unpretentious fat women, succulents will take root here.A kindergarten made of affordable plastic does not require a lot of space and financial investments. You can create it with the whole family, involving children in the entertaining work.
Any summer resident can create an impromptu flower garden from plastic pipes. When choosing plants, the diameter of PVC products should be taken into account. The elements are collected in a rack and holes are cut for pots with seedlings. Also, light pipes can be fastened with rope and hung on a fence or wall. If tall plants are planted, such a structure will become an original fence.For the convenience of irrigation, a drip irrigation system is located inside the pipe.
How to maintain a garden on the wall
In most cases, the phytowall is equipped with automatic irrigation, which feeds the plants, ensures the preservation of the fresh look of the entire structure. But even in this case, you will have to periodically monitor the watering, check the system for problems. It is necessary to test the soil for moisture at least once a week, to monitor the content of the nutrient medium in the container.
In the automatic irrigation system, the pump may break, the filter and droppers may clog. An element that has become unusable needs to be repaired, cleaned, or replaced. The tubes that carry food to the plantings should be changed at least once every two years. It is also necessary to monitor the presence of nutrient fluid in the tank, to replenish the stock of solution in a timely manner.
For a living wall to last a long time, it is worth paying attention to the plants themselves. Diseased species are replaced by new ones.In rooms with dry air, it is recommended to additionally spray the crops with water. It is required to constantly keep the eco-wall clean, remove dry, fallen leaves and stems, remove faded flowers. It is worth doing the prevention of stretching, the appearance of a spider mite.
A vertical garden in an apartment or office is not only a unique decorative element, but also serves for practical purposes. It purifies, moisturizes the air, saturates it with oxygen, and promotes good health.You can build the structure yourself, but it is better to contact specialized firms, where experienced employees will help you decide on the design, advise plants that match a specific design, and install the system.
