Jamie Sangar is a professional photographer with a passion for vertical gardening. In this post she shares how to make a succulent vertical garden for the brightly lit stairwell in her home near Fisher, Indiana.

She first visits her favorite local nursery to source succulent plant species for her design. The team at Allisonville Garden & Home Nursery is eager to help choose a beautiful combination of plant materials.

For this tall space she creates the ideal size and proportion using 4 of the Florafelt 4-Pocket Planters.

Next she prepares the plantings for each pocket using the Florafelt Root Wrapper System where she uses a variety of species for each pocket.

Place the wrapper diagonally and fold down the top corner.

She then adds the wrapped collections to the pockets. It's important to stretch open the pockets as much as you can. They are very strong so pull hard. You want to get a lot of soil in there.

Root wrapped succulents are added to the stretched felt pockets.

A Florafelt Compact Kit was used to create a stylish vertical garden for a home in the Culver City area of Los Angeles. Designer Tucker Warner mounted the vertical garden kit on a shelf so it appears that the plants are floating. The draping leaves hide the tank, digital timer and cord. It's an elegant and very simple way to add plants to interior design.

The famous Kingwood Center Gardens in Mansfield, Ohio received an enormous donation of bromeliads from botanist Jerry Raack. With no room to spare and eager to spruce up the plain wall of a heavily-visited attraction, they decided to grow vertically. Greenhouse manager Doug Schuster asked production coordinator Laura Mast to find the best system. Laura researched online and discovered Florafelt vertical gardens.

The Florafelt vertical garden planters hang from horizontal metal supports using s-hooks. The plants were wrapped and arranged into a beautiful display that boasts seasonal color.

Bromeliads are epiphytes that require minimal roots and naturally grow in trees. Watering twice a week with a hand sprayer keeps them happy and thriving.
