Welcome to Planted Space, a new and growing community of gardeners, horticulturalists, and aquascapers from around the world. Whether you're the casual home gardener, the landscaping designer, the vivarium zookeeper, or just looking to add a little green to your space, you will find plenty of information and inspiration on this site.
At Planted Space, we hope to inspire by example. Our plants are organized by the space, e.g. an indoor living room, an outdoor flower garden, or an aquarium tank. Each week, we feature a "Planted Space," and show you how to design, set up, and maintain your planted spaces. Be sure to subscribe to our latest articles by RSS.
To make the most out of Planted Space, please join our community and share your planted spaces with the rest us. Our featured spaces are often selected from fellow members' photo journals right here in the forums. So stop by and create a journal thread of your own to document your progress, ask questions, and get feedback!
It's mid-April, and the wisteria are in full bloom across parks in Japan, climbing on trees and over trellises to form ornate flowering tunnels.

SUPERthrive is a certfied non-toxic mixture of 50 vitamins and hormones that drastically increases plant growth (both terrestrial and aquatic).

Thousands swear by this product and use it regularly, while others are skeptical, myself one of them.
Incredibly hardy, rapidly growing, and highly nutritious, these crops are recommended for any garden in event of a zombie apocalypse. Considered a lost crop of the Americas, these hardy grains were here long before the arrival of of the Spanish Conquistadors, where they were harvested by ancient Incans and Aztecs.
This piece of furniture is a planted space in itself, covering up the span of an entire wall. Unlike the vertical garden planters we featured in our how to guide, the Live Screen features a closed loop hydroponic system, found in many industrial and commercial spaces. What does this mean? No watering! Well, maybe infrequent watering and nutrient dosing. (Images by Danielle Trofe)
Due to the popularity of our previous emergent growth aquarium space (Indoor Aquatic Rainforest), today we bring you BlueJack's "DirtLand," a 10 gallon jungle filled with both aquatic and tropical plants.
This small tank was picked up at a dollar per gallon sale as a dirt experiment for planted tanks, but turned into something truly astounding.
