Tamu Green Wall Project – by Andrew Kirkpatrick

            Recently in the Greenhouses, the students of Hort. 485 proceeded in planting multiple plants for the newly obtained green-wall that is expected to be installed in early 2014. The process of planting these new plants involved cutting up larger plants into smaller stems that could be placed into small pouches. In order to maximize growth a catalyst or roots stimulate was coated on the base of each plant and was trimmed appropriately. Once it was all said and done about six different sets of plants were created with each set holding close to 72 individual plants.  From there these plants were then placed in the green-roof where they will be used later next year.
