Homestead Brooklyn’s Plant One On Me is an informal question-and-answer series on all your green home and gardening tips. Feel free to write in your questions below the videos, on Instagram @homesteadbrooklyn, or Facebook @summerrayneoakes and @homesteadbrooklyn. In this episode, we return to the green wall that was built over 4 years ago in my home and the new and improved features that we’ve done over the last number of weeks. To my knowledge, this was the first sub-irrigated wall of its kinds that was installed in a residential unit, and in this video, I’ll break down how it’s constructed, how the sub-irrigation system works, and the best plants for the green wall. Some of the new features that have been added is a new sub-irrigation and overflow system, homemade water gauges, an LED grow light above, and also a trellis, so some of the plants can grow upwards.

    Few things to consider.. 1. Using tap water is not ideal for plants. Use water cleaned by reverse osmosis. 2. How this is set up, it’s not recycling it’s own water, so it increases operational cost. 3. Plant nutrients are coming from the soil BC of point 2, you can’t use hydroponic nutrients. They would flush out. It creates room for bad microbes, mold, and fungus to grow. I like your wall, but am having a tough time understanding why this setup was chosen over a self contained hydroponic system.

    Hello, im in the mountains of NEPA and in the winter i would still like to grow veggies. Have you tried edibles on this wall, Letuce and cucmbers? Do you think aquaponics would work if veggies are involved or would running water cause a problem?
    Ive been itching to try a garden wall or a window hanging.

    I want to have a 500sqft room covered wall to wall and ceiling with passion fruit vines. I don't need a wall, I don't think, just a large pot for each vine and trellises. Do you have any suggestions for lighting?

    How much does a set up like this cost?

    Hi, I'm concerned about the breathing problems that indoor plants may cause. How do you avoid the plants from developing any kind of mold? Do the plants create any dust from soil on your apartment ground?

    Hi , I have a question, I noticed small mushrooms growing in one of my indoor potted plants. This never happened before. Plant is doing fine but Should I be highly concerned about these mushrooms appearing in my pot? Help.

    This is glorious oh my. If you could talk more about that LED grow light and whether you use any other supplemental lighting throughout your place (especially in the winter) I could use some top advice! Cheers from Montreal

    I love it!!! I do wonder though, when plants grow they obviously grow more roots and they'll eventually need more space than a 5 inch gutter could provide– at least that's my assumption. Do you just move them out of the wall when they need more space? Or have you found that they do fine in the wall?

    LOVE the wall, and appreciate learning the how-to of its construction! Good luck with it!

    This is a dumb question but I remember when I had a couple plants it brought in a lot of spiders into my room. Does that happen with you too?

  • from37on 5 months ago

    Ms. Rayne, do you have any experience using reflective light from mirrors to provide more light to plants in less than favorable light conditions? Also, thank you so much for your video.

    I saw that you have some airplants in the background, could you maybe do an overview of tillandsia/airplant care?? I recently picked up a tillandsia xerographica, one of the biggest airplants, and I am really struggling to find any solid information on it. I know the basics, such as giving it a bath weekly, and indirect bright light, but what type of water does it prefer? And how do I allow mine to unfurl more?

    Thank you for doing a close-up of your green wall! I have been so curious about how it all works. Felt = ingenious! It must be such a pleasure to wake up and see a wall of plants!
