Bio Wall Blunder !
Bye Bye Bio wall.
You have beaten me down.
I was warned by a nay sayer that the bio wall would turn into a bio hazard .
Now I have to admit he was right.
It’s just not working.
The cuttings that I took back in late October to early November have not created sufficient roots to hold a soil mass together.
When I turn the flats up on edge at a 10 degree angle the whole flat of succulents crumbles into a blob of soil, tiny white filaments of roots and big green leafy plant heads.
I am disappointed to say the least.
After the flats kept falling face first onto the ground I cut up some chicken wire and stapled it to the frame and stuffed the succulents into the chicken wire frame. Sort of like how they make those succulent wreaths, but only way way larger.
Yes it did work but it is incredibly labor intensive and I don’t think the three bio wall sections would make the trip from my house to the Cow palace in decent shape.
I think it will really look like a bio hazard site once it arrives at the Cow palace and that is not a chance I want to take.
There is not enough good tough mature fibrous root mass to keep its shape.
So now onto Plan B.
When I figure out what that will be I’ll let you know.
