Our Living Picture is an innovative self-watering vertical planter that brings commerical green wall technology into the home. The built-in water tank delivers just the right amount of water to the plants using a special microfibre capillary cloth. Watering is straightforward - when the tank is empty, a little red watering can appears on the bottom the frame. Just top up the tank through the filler hole. You will know when it is full as a yellow marker will appear next to where you add the water.

Fixing the Living Picture is very straightforward. As long as you can drill two holes, using the template provided, then you will be fine (if you are fixing it to a stud wall, you will need to use appropriate hollow wall fixings). Full instructions are provided in the box.

Our Living Picture comes with six ready-to-plant Fittonia albivenis (the nerve plant, or mosaic plant). This has deep green leaves with brightly coloured veins, ranging in shade from pure white to differing shades of pink and red. In its natural habitat, it is a creeping, spreading plant, which makes it ideal for ground cover in tropical areas, or for bowls, terrariums or vertical features as a houseplant.

It produces rather dull and uninspiring flowers, which can be removed when seen.

Please note: the plant comes in many shades and we cannot guarantee what coloured leaf veins your plants will have.

All our potted plants come in compostable coir pots - read more here.

Pest & Diseases

Mealybugs can sometimes be found, and they should be removed (or heavily infested foliage cut out). In dry conditions, be on the lookout for two-spotted spide mites.
