Abstract
Selected vertical greening set ups are tested at the Eden Tower. Scientific monitoring of the mock ups are conducted under definded conditions:
Research Questions:
Which components fulfil hich vegetation technological funtionality
Which plant species perform best regarding vegetation-technological and asthetic requirements?
How is the water requirements regarding exposition and height?
How can micro-climatic conditions be described?
