Kingwood Center Gardens Living Wall Features Bromeliads

Kingwood Center Gardens add a living wall to accommodate a generous donation of bromeliads from botanist Jerry Raack. Greenhouse manager Doug Schuster asked production coordinator Laura Mast to find the best system. Laura researched online and discovered Florafelt living wall systems.

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.
