“I wouldn't coax the plant if I were you. Such watchful nursing may do it harm. Let the soil rest from so much digging And wait until it's dry before you water it. The leaf's inclined to find its own direction; Give it a chance to seek the sunlight for itself. Much growth is stunted by too careful prodding, Too eager tenderness. The things we love we have to learn to leave alone.” ― Naomi Long Madgett
I’m sort of a detail-obsessed guy and some photographs like this are only for enjoying the randomness and the little details in them. If we look at a leaf branching out, there’re these nuances of art and perfection in them. We see the function designed into them here. It’s not random or accidental, but we see purpose and intention in them. As Ralph Waldo Emerson famously put it, “Every particular in nature, a leaf, a drop, a crystal, a moment of time is related to the whole, and partakes of the perfection of the whole.”

The arrangement of the vertical garden is tuned to give a dense feeling. All plants are brought to the shelf including the newly populated money plants (also called Golden Pothos).
Do you love to prune plants? I’d encourage to learn the simple golden pothos propagation technique. This is where we started the above stand. Happy gardening!
Love aqua-scaping? We’ve got stuff to keep you interesting : )
