i wonder how hard the upkeep is. i bet it helps keep the building cooler in summer and warmer in winter, though :)

i had the feeling there should be an 's' at the end - i should have gone with my instinct :D

wouldn't that be great - to have an entire town! have you seen anything like this before? i heard there are more buildings like this around.

I know that we can also do vegetal wall INSIDE the home! That's great, but you need a lot of light (logic!)

i too have seen this before - but on a much smaller scale. and with mosses and vinca major or vinca minor, english ivy, etc, it wouldn't need much light :D

I think it will not work in a northern room!
All my plants died in my room, because it's North. Not enough light! Though, that was ivy, they don't need much light... *sniiifff why my room is north?!*

there is a plant, commonly called "the closet plant" because it needs almost no light to survive. it has a kind of white spathe flower - i can find out the latin name. i have one myself. it needs watering about once per week or once every 2 weeks. i am sure that one would work. you can also cultivate a moss garden if you want - just have to mist it with water sometimes :)

Closet plant? Yes, I need the latine name, because I have no idea what kind of plant it is!

I can try to pick a Neottia nidus-avis [link] But I don't think a have enough light and place for a tree (and so I will not have the mushrooms for the orchid! :XD: - Vicious cirlce :XD: )

It looks scary to me in the photo, does it in real life?
