Just getting ready for doing my own gutter garden. Thought I’d share a little “research” with you.
metrogarden:

looks like 6 gutters angled slightly so the water flows and rains to a gutter below. and the final gutter drains into a horse trough with some more plants growing. there’s also a solar panel on top, for a water pump? nice.


I’ve always been intrigued about a set-up like this.  I wonder what they use for the growing substrate that doesn’t get washed away with the water.  I’ve seen people use gravel or other solid materials, but there doesn’t even seem to be anything containing it.

Ficus carica (the plants) makes a breathtaking display of aerial greenery filling the glass dome of what was once a chapel. Tradition has it that the dome was built round the tree.
see how plants can be amazing…

Pitcher plants are carnivorous plants whose prey-trapping mechanism features a deep cavity filled with liquid known as a pitfall trap. It has been widely assumed that the various sorts of pitfall trap evolved from rolled leaves, with selection pressure favouring more deeply cupped leaves over evolutionary time[]

The Black bat flower (Tacca chantrieri)! The unusual flowers of this member of the yam family can get up to a foot across with long whiskers that can grow to 28 inches long. The flowers can also be brown or white. They grow in the tropical forests of the Yunnan Province in China.

I was going to call this the plant version of a bat, and then I got down to the description. Lo and behold.
