Plants that grow well in vertical gardens, used as inserts


  • Due to insufficient light and dry indoor heating air, winter is the most challenging period for crotons grown indoors. During this time, they are most susceptible to fungal diseases, pest attacks, color loss, and leaf drop. However, individual specimens are often used in vertical gardens and can survive for a long time.


  • CAM-type species – at night, it absorbs CO2 and releases oxygen. It has antifungal and antiseptic properties.
  • When used in groups, it quickly overgrows the entire garden and displaces other species. It is a highly invasive species.
  • Once it overgrows, it becomes very fragile and challenging to maintain.


  • It increases air humidity.
  • The plant often sheds individual leaves. They should be trimmed when this happens.
  • Unfortunately, a dried leaf of this size can often spoil the entire garden’s effect.


  • This plant has high air-purifying properties. It contributes to improving the climate in our homes.
  • The Calathea closes its leaves at night and opens them again in the morning.
  • It enjoys being sprayed with water.


  • It belongs to the most decorative indoor plants with ornamental leaves. The plant’s adornment consists of bright green, heart-shaped, slightly elongated, and entire leaves adorned with numerous openings.
  • It has modest cultivation requirements and thrives well under the conditions in our homes.


  • It requires very little regular pruning since the plant naturally sheds its older leaves.
  • As it matures, it produces sweet-smelling, bowl-shaped flowers, often followed by berries. After they’re spent, you should cut off the dead flower stems with a sharp knife or pruners.
  • The shrubby Cordyline originates from environments with rainfall and prefers consistent humidity. Overwatering can lead to root rot and other issues.
