Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mpsloan Succulent Box
I wanted to try to make my own succulent wall hanging like I'd seen on Pinterest. They are VERY expensive to buy on Etsy, however I was confident I could make one. I bought succulents from Home Depot and ordered the box online. It was very well made and sturdy. It comes with directions that are easy to follow. It took about 1.5 hours to complete because I had to cut the metal grill that holds it together. My only criticism is that the metal grid is too small for even the smallest succulents so it must be cut. I would buy another one even though it takes a bit more time to make the plants fit.

The wires protecting the fabric are thick and difficult to cut. Since this box is meant to hang after plants are established, the wires would not have to be that stiff. Roots would help hold plants in place so something similar to chicken wire should do the trick. I love that the product is made by Amish in the US!

This vertical planter is very nice looking but it was a bit tricky to plant the succulents. I wish it has an opening at the top to water the plants once you hang it. I will be able to drill some holes to accommodate. Overall I like it, they are not easy to find and this one was reasonably priced.

This was my first vertical garden! It was super easy to plant the succulents in but I have not hung it up yet. It is a beautiful frame and I am excited to hang it up!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MABW Cute cedar succulent box, but difficult to set up.
The directions specifically state to slide the back off of the box, fill with dirt lightly and then put back on. THEN the directions state to poke holes in the liner from the INSIDE and put plants in...Okayyy. The liner was very hard to poke through to get the roots of the plants in. The metal grid on the front of the box prevents you from being able to make a decent size hole for the roots. You could cut the grid but then that kind of negates it holding the plants in. I had teeny little babies off of my hens and chicks and I still found it tricky to poke them through the hole in the liner. Overall I think this is a cute idea, but somewhat hard to set up. As well one of the backs did not want to slide out of the box, and I had to pry it out. Be careful not to get dirt in the groove that the back slides into. We'll see in a few weeks how well they work.

It takes more cuttings than you'd think to fill up one of these things, so this is the perfect size for a beginner. It's well made, and definitely worth the money. A nice touch is the fabric liner, which helps hold the dirt in place for wall hanging.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Karen Really fun gardening project
Had a lot of fun planting with this, although I didn't really understand how to effectively cut away the mesh to stick plants in and have it still hold everything in. My bigger agave plant fell out even though I let the roots grow in for 2 weeks as recommended, but I put it back in place with some twist ties and it seems to be holding now. Perhaps if you start out with really small plants you can fit them in without any cutting, though a variety of shapes and sizes in the arrangement looks better I think.
