Bring Nature Inside and Breath Easy!

Plants purify air. A Living Frame significantly enhances indoor air quality by reducing common household toxins like formaldehyde, VOC's, trichloroethylene, carbon monoxide, benzene, toluene, xylene and many more.


Living Frames are an affordable and long-lasting investment. Plants are chosen according to their robust quality and, when given the necessary care, have the same life-expectancy as a regular potted plant!
  • 12 standard colours - 3 in quality natural wood and 9 colours in wrinkle or smooth metal finishes
  • 1 standard size, 31 x 31 cm
  • Plant availability is seasonal and depends on greenhouse supply

MAINTENANCE

ALWAYS keep some water in the reservoir
Keep your indoor temperature between 15°C and 25°C
Natural light
Do not expose to a source of heat (Air conditioner, heater, light bulbs)


First installation:

The Wallflower™ Living Frame comes complete with the necessary tools to:
  • Hang it up on the wall: Take the installation kit provided with each purchase, horizontally mount the fastening part (bracket) to the wall and then clip your Wallflower living frame.
  • Display your Living Frame on a piece of furniture (table, office desk, cabinet). The same bracket can be clipped onto the back of the frame to stabilise the frame; three different heights are possible.
Once you have found the ideal position for your frame, you will need to fill the water reserve, especially during the first two days, to allow for the pouch to rehydrate sufficiently. Thereafter, a water level indicator located on the side of the frame will indicate when you need to replenish the water reserve. How often you will need to refill the reserve depends on the season, the exposure to light and the temperature of the surrounding interior space.

The watering procedure:

Behind each frame (if you look at the frame from the front, it is on the bottom left), an indicator shows the water level remaining in the reservoir.

If you want to change the plant composition, you can change the substrate bag:

To exchange a WALLFLOWER™ substrate pouch, you need to:
  • Empty the water from the water reservoir,
  • Place the frame in front of you in an upright position,
  • Open the lid on top of the plastic container,
  • Unhook the WALLFLOWER™ substrate bag you'd like to replace, then let it fall to the bottom of the container,
  • Lay the frame flat,
  • Gently pull out the substrate bag from the front of the frame,
  • Turn the frame 180°, so that the water reservoir is facing away from you (upside down frame),
  • Take the new WALLFLOWER™ substrate bag and gently insert it into the front of the frame, the top of the bag (with the hooks) must be on your side,
  • Insert the cotton wick into the bottom of the water reservoir,
  • Place the frame upright,
  • Hook the bag into the top of the frame,
  • Close the lid of the plastic container.
You have successfully replaced the substrate bag, you now have a new WALLFLOWER™ Living Frame!

IMPORTANT NOTE
The Wallflower™ patented system is based on water absorption by capillarity. As the root system constantly receives water, the plants will have different characteristics than they would if they were in a pot. It is important to keep plants in a light environment at a constant temperature of between 15 and 25 degrees Celsius and to ensure that there is always water in the reservoir.
