the materials for media
I attempt to make a vertical garden of my own, with recycled materials
1) recycled bottles as containers, hanging on a wire frame
2) recycled polystyrene as a medium
3) recycled food waste as a medium in the form of worm compost
I still have only philodendron, some snake plant (Kalanchoe) some 'weeds' from the shady parts of my mother's garden, and ivy....but I plant to add some ferns, some bizzy lizzy's, some shade loving pelargoniums, and some other shade plants from Kirstenbosch which are still growing up a little.
