  [aroid-l] Growing wall question
From: RAYMOMATTLA at cs.com on 2003.12.19 at 03:10:07(10946)
I am getting ready to extend my greenhouse and want to add growing walls on
the sides. I have installed these in my current greenhouse and they are filled
with long fiber spaghnum (I ended up using about 8 bales of the stuff which
was kind of expensive at 50 bucks a bale. The walls in the extension will be
both longer and taller so I am scared to even think about how much I may spend
on that. Is there a cheaper yet reliable substitute I can use for the new
walls? I know several people use coco-fiber. Is this less expensive than
Spaghnum and would it quickly degrade? I have thought about buying large tree fern
plaques in bulk and gluing them to the walls, everntually the plants will
cover the seams, but is this a good idea? I dont really like the idea of using
tree fern products to begin with! Any ideas on what i should use or should I
bite the bullet and stick with spaghnum?
Thanks, Michael Mattlage
