Tropical Plants for Living Walls

In southern Florida or Hawaii, tropical plants may be sustained year-round in outdoor green wall applications.  In most cases, we would recommend the large planters to get the longest life out of the plants before they become root-bound, as many tropical plants have large root masses.  Some cultivars with shallow roots may grow well in the Standard size planters.

Nearly all indoor LiveWall applications are planted with a selection of tropical plants.  We have developed both a guide for indoor plants and a guide for plants recommended for tropical climates.

For inspiration, we have added project examples to show the design flexibility of the LiveWall system when planted with tropicals.  For even more ideas, click the button to the right to view our entire showcase of vertical garden projects.
