For those of you who aren’t familiar with the French botanist Dr. Patrick Blanc, he is credited as the inventor of the hydroponic Mur Végétal, or Vertical Garden, over 40 years ago.  His lush tropical creations are found across the world, and he’s known for his love of biodiversity.  His 250+ planted projects have hundreds of species, as opposed to the handful of many other designers.

When you have the time, I definitely recommend watching both of these very interesting videos:
