Living wall systems are purposely designed to minimize or eliminate conditions where mold could grow. They are typically held off the wall by a few inches which keeps moisture next to the plants and promotes air movement, not an environment for mold to flourish. When a living wall is not properly installed or maintained, it is possible for moisture to build up behind the wall and allow mold to grow. This is another important reason to have your living wall professionally installed and maintained by professionals like Good Earth Plant Company.
Protect your investment and avoid problems like mold with a regular maintenance program. Don’t ask George the janitor to take care of it.
