Living Wall 2 construction, by Juan Carlos Vela

Week of July 15th to July 19th

After wrapping up a few more plants this week, we continued planting the second living wall, which seemed to be doing pretty well despite the harsh summer heat and dry conditions. While wrapping up the plants, we made sure to include enough soil to sustain the plant over time. We also did our best to maintain a balanced ratio between the roots and shoots on each plant to avoid stressing them out. Without this balanced ratio, the plants run a high risk of going into a state of shock when transferred from their original pots to the harsh climate outside; thus, causing them to die off.
