Conservatory of Flowers Vertical Garden


A dazzling array of exotic tropicals cover a wall at the entrance to San Francisco's Conservatory of Flowers in Golden Gate Park.  Guadalupe Cota, Senior Nursery Specialist, selects and places each plant as they become available, and the Florafelt Vertical Garden system gives her the flexibility to slowly build the perfect garden according to availability and aesthetic design.  After 6 months, nearly 2/3rds of the pockets have been filled, and the plants have shown significant growth . The planters are hung from steel struts by s-hooks and are watered and fed by a digital hose timer and pressure feeder.  The Florafelt Vertical Garden Planters were donated to this San Francisco institution by Chris Bribach of Plants On Walls.  it is located in the front entrance, and offers visitors a welcome bursting with color and intrigue. http://PlantsOnWalls.com

6 Months Mature at 100 Pine San Francisco

After 6 months, the vertical garden at 100 Pine Street in Downtown San Francisco has developed a rich depth of color and texture.  The blue star ferns have emerged, while the bird nest, mother, and leather ferns push to the front of the ficus decora, giving 3-dimensional structure to the composition.  Designed by Chris Bribach of Plants On Walls for CBRE office towers. http://PlantsOnWalls.com
