The soil-based suspended garden is relatively effortless. It's designed to be used with potting mixes, and organic fertilizer. Unlike in hydroponics, this ensures access to micro-nutrients and bio-resilience to plant pathogens. Once filled with potting mix, the felt cones are placed in the glass jars and wick-water the soil.The jars need to be half-filled with water every 10 days, in the case of most plants (or whenever the water runs out). This is a set of three suspended garden columns.
Each are made 4 self-watering suspended planters each; a glass jar and a felt cone. It's also available as a single column, or a set of columns sets (see other listings). You can hang several of these columns in a row, to create a green wall. Items included are a ball chain structure, glass jars, felt cones, 2 ceiling hooks and instructions. The plants and potting mix are not included.
The suspended garden is simple to hang; just insert the 2 included hooks in the ceiling or window frame then attach the chain structure to the hooks and place the glass jars in the chain hoops. Simply pack the felt cones with potting mix, transplant or place seeds in the cone and place the cones in the glass jars. The glass water reservoirs allow you to see when the water level drops, and refill the reservoir without risking overflow. The plants are wick-watered which means there is no risk of leaking on the wall or floor.Wick-watering, as opposed to top-watering prevents soil compaction and results in aerated soil, healthy plants roots and vigorous plants. If you have any questions about the suspended garden you bought, i'd be happy to answer it.
