DIY Sub-irrigated Green Wall — Plant One On Me — Ep 028

DIY Sub-irrigated Green Wall — Plant One On Me — Ep 028

In this episode, we return to the green wall that was built over 4 years ago in my home and the new and improved features that we’ve done over the last number of weeks. To my knowledge, this was the first sub-irrigated wall of its kinds that was installed in a residential unit, and in this video, I’ll break down how it’s constructed, how the sub-irrigation system works, and the best plants for the green wall. Some of the new features that have been added is a new sub-irrigation and overflow system, homemade water gauges, an LED grow light above, and also a trellis, so some of the plants can grow upwards.
