Vertical Green in Saigon City

image

On my recent trip to Ho Chi Minh, I see more attempts to greenify the city. This building opposite the District 1 at Don Ton Tat Thiep street.

Opposite Saigon Centre, a Singapore restaurant with green wall using encheviara. I’ve not tried the food although very much want to support a Singapore chef.

But my love for Vietnamese spring rolls was just too overwhelming.

Maybe it’s still new. Visit in a few months time to see how well the vertical green wall is doing.

Amazing. Cactus and sedum on vertical green. The wall is on the shade side. Perhaps it may work as not much watering needed.

So far no one has attempted to pry off the plants at night. They’re all at eye level. In the day time there’s a security guard standing outside.

Hanging plants in balcony makes a difference to the drab street scene.

Or tie fairy lights on old branches for a Christmas feel.
