steps to make your own magnetic Vertical Garden

  1. To build your magnetic vertical garden , you’ll need a magnet surface. It can be found on the refrigerator’s side. If you can’t find any, grab an sheet of sheet metal  that can be mounted on the wall. just be sure to secure it to your wall to ensure it’s strong enough to support the capacity of the pots!
  2. Then, you can glue the or magnetic push pins to one flat edge of the flower pot that will act as the rear side of your pot.┬áMake sure you know the weight capacity of the magnets prior to gluing them in – depending on the dimensions and weight of the pots you use for your flowers as well as your plants, you may require multiple magnets or choose a very strong magnet!┬áBefore you add the plants, let the glue dry as per the directions.
  3. The next step is to install the air plants either succulents or plants. You will then plant your air plants, succulents, or herbs.
  4. Once your plants are in the pots they came from and you have them in their pots, move the pots around until you have the ideal arrangement. The result is an indoor , vertical space.
