Vertical Garden Compilation - 2019

Here is a compilation of my gardening journey in cultivating the Vertical Garden for last year (2019) It was indeed a long-haul experience of selecting the right plants and figuring out their hardiness or sensitivity in their growing season in this long-term experience.

There was a lot of challenges mainly rodent attack that came through rats which made it's nest inside the hanging pots, these damage take place during the night. During the day, another challenge - tree shrew visit the plants, nibble and bite off orchids and some juicy succulent leaf shoots and crown and stressing the plants even more. 

Apart from the the rodents, I had faced more challenges on cultivating episcias here as I find them very much appealing to my gardening interest but the ants started farming scale insects which had caused more harm on long-term basis that the plants succumb to stress and slowing dying. 

I realized that instead of struggling on the on going battle against nature of which I may not win, especially when I had decided not to use any pesticide in my garden for overall well being of all the fauna that dwells and visits here. 888 Here in the collection shown here are some of my bromeliads, airplants, agloanema and ferns. Also humidity loving shade plants such as begonias, caladiums, colocasia and alocasia species.
