This project by AAFC scientists looked at providing new commercial opportunities for the Canadian ornamental industry through the development of innovative and low maintenance indoor gardening eco-wall systems for home, residential and public buildings. The research included an evaluation of LED lighting systems and tested five distinctively different wall module systems, several growing medium, fertilization regimes (organic, conventional) and bio-stimulants, including Si, on a wide range of plant species grown under different light conditions (e.g. with or without LED supplementary lighting; under low PPFD).
