Regional Account Manager, Andrew Engel, shares this calming footage of his personal live pincushion moss wall and Alocasia plant. His careful attention helps to nurture these plants and keep them thriving as they in return, keep him thriving.
Here you will see my favorite set-up. The first plant you see is an Alocasia with the aerial roots of a Philodendron 'revolution' resting on top. The roots are wrapped in moss and the plant is kept in a slatted basket to encourage aerial roots. The moss you see on the wall is Pincushion Moss, or Leucobryum glaucum. It is really hardy and is thriving inside. All it needs is a fairly consistent mist to stay green as moss has no roots and it can dry out fairly quickly. It also needs a bit of care in filtering the water as moss can be sensitive to chemicals found in municipal water. The best part of the whole set-up is the mist that sprays over the wall as it brings up the relative humidity in the whole apartment nurturing me and all the plants around.
