The spider plant is among the most popular and easiest to grow of all hanging or trailing houseplants. While these exceptionally hardy plants will survive in less than perfect conditions, in perfect conditions they are stunning. A mature plant will form tight rosettes of arching leaves with a profusion of hanging plantlets on long stems, up to 3 feet, somewhat like a bushy green mane. Although there is a pure green variety, the most common variety seen in garden centers in the green-and-white striped 'Variegatum.' Mature plants have small white flowers.
The arrowhead vine makes a pretty trailing or climbing vine that tends to aggressive growth under the right conditions. Sometimes mislabeled as Nephthytis, the arrowhead vine is a tropical climber in the Arum (or aroid) family. Many varieties have variegated leaves to one degree or another, and like many aroids, the plant's leaf structure changes as it matures, going from a simple arrow shape to a deeply lobed or divided mature leaf.
The dieffenbachia is a beautiful if sometimes confusing group of plants. These plants feature pointed, broad leaves in a variety of combinations of green and white. There are at least a dozen varieties, with names like D. picta, D. amoena, and D. oerstedii. A large, well-grown dieffenbachia can reach five feet, with leaves of a foot or more. However, the plants will rarely reach this size in typical indoor conditions. The so-called dumb cane gets its name from its milky sap, which is a mild irritant and should be kept from bare skin. The sap can cause temporary loss of speech. These plants are a good option for gardeners with the space to grow them, but consider avoiding dieffenbachias if you have small children or pets around the house. Otherwise, they could be hurt by the irritating substances produced by the dumb cane plant.
The golden pothos vine is one of the most popular and dependable houseplants available today. Formerly known as Scindapsus aureus, these plants grow to giant proportions in their native habitats. They can easily swallow 100-foot trees, and their mature leaves are as broad as basketballs. In home cultivation, they are exceptionally tough, both easy to propagate and maintain. See Growers Tips below for special planting ideas.
The Peace Lily is related to other aroids, including anthurium and alocasia. The plant has glossy, pointed and oval leaves that emerge from the soil. Typical of the aroids, the white flowers emerge from the leaf stalk surrounded by a cupped white spathe that gradually fades from pure white to greenish or yellow over time. The central spadix is white or yellow. These plants are native to the rainforests of Central and South America.
This climbing vine plant isn’t a good option if you have kids or pets — it's toxic when eaten, but it's a workhorse for removing all kinds of VOCs. Philodendrons are particularly good at battling formaldehyde from sources like particleboard. Heart leaf philodendron are very low-maintenance plants. They thrive with indirect light and very little maintenance, according to the University of Florida. The trailing vines can just fall from the container or can be trained to climb up a screen, trellis or pole.

We have included a separate FAQ section below of a few commonly asked questions by our clients and visitors, but we want to take the time to dedicate a space to the basic components of a LivingWall here for you. It is our most asked question. The basics for any self-watering, reservoir based vertical garden are as follows:
1. The structural backing and decorative frame. This is dictated by the dimensions you wish to fill with our Florafelt panel(s) and can be fabricated to match any existing decor. This is what your Florafelt panels fasten to. We suggest wood construction for indoor use and vinyl for outdoor use. We use, carry, and offer both vinyl(waterproof) and wood framed products.
2. An impermeable membrane installed behind the Florafelt panels. A properly installed membrane will capture all water activity not absorbed by the plants and channel it to the reservoir tray at the bottom of your LivingWall. It will be made of one continuous piece in any situation, this is to avoid any water damage and so becomes a very important part of any Living wall.
3. The Florafelt pocket panels. This is what your plants will be housed in. The Florafelt panels are the most versatile and effective product we have found for its intended purpose. So much so that they are the only pocket panel we carry.
4. The reservoir tray. It is to be water tight and built to last the lifetime of your wall. It is to be the full width of, and located at the bottom of your LivingWall. Allowing gravity to do its job. The pump is found in the tray and so dimensions must comply.
5. The irrigation system. This consists of a pump rated to supply adequate pressure, the hosing and outlet ports to administer the water, and a timer used to set a watering schedule that best suits your vertical garden needs (please note that a common electrical outlet source is required to plug in the pump and timer)
We had an exciting project recently that we greatly enjoyed being asked to be a part of. The new Oliver Park Dental office on 104 ave here in edmonton opened this year and they put us to task on a 12 foot tall living wall.
Here is some of the comments Dr.O and his staff had to say about their experience with us.
"Dave and Chris have been nothing short of exceptional! Their attentiveness to the needs of the wall have been second to none. The living Wall is beautiful and never goes unnoticed by all who visit the office. Our patients have commented that the wall has a calming effect and adds to the serenity of the office. We would not hesitate to utilize Dave and Chris at LivingWallsEdmonton.ca for all our horticultural needs!"

The Brewery District in downtown Edmonton is a fast growing and developing area. It is home to Oliver Park Dental that is located adjacent to the Loblaw’s grocery store on 104 Ave. In the reception area of this beautiful dentist facility you can find our largest project completed to date. This living wall is large and demands the attention of all those who see it. Standing 12 feet tall and 4 feet wide it is a site to see. This particular project was not a reservoir based living wall, instead it has city water feed and drains to the city sewer. This is possible as the vision of the client to have the living wall was early enough in the construction of the facility to allow for the appropriate plumbing to be done to allow for the living wall. Once construction was completed we were then put to task on designing, fabricating, transporting, and installing this large centerpiece to the reception area. The frame is made of beautiful poplar wood and finished to match the walnut color of the existing decor. There is an abundant 92 pockets to house plants with a custom stainless steel reservoir tray to funnel water to the city drain. The plants were purchased from our quality local supplier. There is a water pressure reducing unit installed as well as a fertilizer injector installed in the feed line. This is not a common feature as generally it is not required but there is no project that we cannot complete. We shared the jobsite with other contractors looking to complete their work in an effort to meet the dentist's grand opening date. The date was a success and the dentist is up and running we are glad to say. Dwayne, or “Dr.O” as he goes by, is a reputable dentist in the Edmonton area and we encourage you to go see him and bring him your business if you are looking for a great dentist. While you are there stop and take in our largest project to date, it is a site to see.
It is always great to hear from our past and potential clients. Here are some of the common questions asked by you:
1.Q. What are some of the common plants used for indoor gardens?
A. There are six plants that we find do well indoors when planted in our Florafelt panels. We have listed them above with a description of each plant. These are not your only options but are commonly successful. We find plants that require lower amounts of light do well when planning your indoor garden. Options open up to those gardeners that have an indoor space that is flooded with natural light.
2.Q. What if I do not have a lot of natural light available in my indoor space?
A. Natural light is, and always will be your best option. When faced with insufficient natural light then some additional lighting is always an option. The specific lighting to install can be a mountain of information when trying to decide, we will help you through this as you look for your best option. Some indoor lighting products are fluorescent, some are LED, some are HID, and some are specialty. These are your basic options. Some lighting is designed toward the "cooler" end of the spectrum, which lends itself to better vegetative growth. Some lighting is designed for the "warmer" end of the spectrum, lending itself towards fruiting and flowering results. In considering the correct wattage for your area, keep in mind that although higher wattage will absolutely equate to bigger yields, it also means higher energy consumption and more heat output to deal with. We can help you through all of this, including the installation of your lighting.
