Space is a hot commodity. Floor, counter and especially private outdoor space can be hard to come by, particularly if you’re in an apartment. Luckily, gardening is no longer a hobby restricted to suburbia. All homes have walls, and that’s all you need to become a successful plant parent.
Since house plants have proven to be a lasting trend, there are now wall planters to meet all of your vertical gardening needs. You can grow a mounted herb garden in your kitchen or propped up on your tiny balcony. You can build terrariums along living room walls to help solidify that desert vibe you’ve been going for. You can even propagate your own plant babies on display for all to see.
Even if you have the space elsewhere, using mounted wall planters to add more life and greenery into your space is a great decor hack. Not only do plants look lovely, but they can also improve air quality and boost your mood, so why not pack in as many as possible with some of these great wall planters?
