What a joke that "hanging garden" is! Looks like it was done 'el cheapo' like everything else on this building.
My bet is half of the plants will die.

A human takes 9 months to grow inside of its mother's womb, it then takes years for a baby to become a full-grown adult. So why is it that you would expect plants to be any different? Give the bloody things time to grow rather than rubbishing the finishings of this building...

I would agree with you Patrick but given how bad and cheap this looks when compared to the renders, and this city’s track record with green walls and greenery in general, I have next to no hope this will be maintained.

I remember when people whinged about the vines on the Rundle Street U-Park and they took all of two months to take hold. Still, I fear the western wall will be a gamble -- I'm not totally confident the plants won't simply fry in the summer heat, especially with the dark concrete radiating back onto them. Fingers crossed though, because if it works it's a much better solution to the western solar load than the hideous walls we're more often dealt.

This building looks as bland as the renders, I'm not sure why people are surprised by the outcome. And the plants are growing slowly, but still much faster than the ones in Topham Mall.
