Tips & Tricks
Here are some tips and tricks for using PlantWallBox, a wall-mounted plant box that can help you create your own living plant wall in your home or office.
CHOOSE YOUR PLANTS
Choose the right plants for your PlantWallBox. You can use any plants that fit in the box, but some plants are more suitable than others. For example, you can use succulents, ferns, herbs, or air plants, which are low-maintenance and can thrive in different light conditions. You can also mix and match different types of plants to create a diverse and colorful plant wall.
When deciding which plants to choose for your indoor green wall, you need to consider a few things like: how much sunlight the plants will be exposed to, the water needs of your plants and the size of your plants (not more than 9 cm).

CHOOSE YOUR DESIGN
Get creative and design your own plant picture. When you are ready to plant, cover the water drainage compartment at the bottom of the box in order to prevent any soil spilling into it.
See our video here on how to design your own plant wall:
PLACE YOUR PLANT
Plant your chosen plants in each cell and fill the cell up with soil matching the needs of your plants. If you choose a design where you have cells with no plants, make sure to fill the cell with soil. (Tip: Try and finish your design with moss for decoration).
FILL SOIL AND SECURE PLANT
Press the soil firmly, especially in the corners, so it leaves some space from the top while ensuring to cover the water slits fully (to prevent dripping when watering). The more soil you can get in the corners, the more secure your plants will be.
Make sure to water before hanging up your fully planted box. If the soil is too dry it could result in some loose soil spilling (see watering).

FILL UP WITH MOSS
If you like you can fill up the empty boxes or corners with moss and give the box extra decoration.
WATERING AFTER PLANTING
Water the box on the ground and wait 3-4 hours to let the soil and plants settle before hanging the box on the wall
When lifting the box, the water will collect at the bottom of your box, make sure the plug is secured.
WATERING WHILE HANGING
Make sure you water slowly.
Do not water faster than the soil can absorb (the drainage compartment can take a maximum of 250 ml).
Have a dry cloth ready in case you experience spilling of water.
When done watering, empty the excess water from the build-in drainage system by removing the plug from the bottom hole.
Have a cup ready to collect the water.
There is room for 250 ml water in the excess water collector.
- Install your PlantWallBox on a secure wall. You will need a drill, screws, and anchors to mount the box on the wall. Make sure the wall can support the weight of the box and the plants. You can also use a level to ensure the box is aligned properly. Follow the instructions manual that comes with each purchase for more details.
- Combine your PlantWallBox in different combinations and sizes. You can create your own unique plant wall by arranging the boxes in different patterns and shapes. You can also use different sizes of boxes to fit your wall space. The boxes have a built-in water and drainage system that allows them to function together. You can also add some accessories, such as lights, frames, or signs, to enhance your plant wall.
- Water your PlantWallBox regularly. The boxes have a water reservoir at the bottom that holds enough water for about two weeks. You can check the water level by looking at the indicator on the side of the box. To water the box, simply pour water into the top opening until the indicator shows full. The water will drip down to the plants through a wick system. The excess water will drain out through a hole at the back of the box.
- Enjoy the benefits of your PlantWallBox. Having a plant wall in your home or office can improve your mood, reduce stress, purify the air, and add beauty and functionality to your space. You can also enjoy the freshness and fragrance of your plants, or even harvest some herbs for your cooking.
