I finally managed to get my Indoor Hanging Wall Planter Project up on the wall! I ran out of screws so I'll have to run to the store to pick up a couple more and make sure it stays up securely. It's fine for now but I definitely need those screws attached before adding pots and soil for plants. I picked several seed packets with different varieties of basil as well as one packet of lavender seed to plant.
The LED light rope does a good job of creating ambient light around the wall planter but does make enough to serve as an actual plant light. Since it's energy efficient it will make a good light in the evenings when it gets dark to help find our way through the room. Our bonus room can be a minefield of children's toys that can invoke dire consequences to the barefoot parent!
