A friend advised that this list sometimes discusses water walls and the species that suit them.
have a new water wall. It's about 5 feet high and about 20 feet long.
Rocks are already turning green after just a week of water including
several dry spells (to fix leaks!). I live at 1400 metres above sea
level in the Dominican Republic so day temperatures can be as high as
32C (often cooler) and nights drop to as low as 6C. The wall is
exposed to strong sunlight for several hours a day. The water is
neutral and direct from a river. The rocks are probably neutral (but
may tend towards alkaline - I must test this).
If anyone can suggest specific plant species or varieties (not necessarily aroids) that
would be either interesting or attractive, I'd be grateful. I'm
relatively knowledgeable about carnivorous plants and not new to
specialist gardening, so I'm looking for something a little more
helpful than generalities (so for example, being told that "ferns" are
good would be no real help).
Thanks for any suggestions, especially if replies are copied directly to me.
