Abstract:

The present investigation was carried out about vertical garden as one of the most popular greenery systems in the modern era with 5 plants and 5 media compositions, at the Department of Horticulture, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology and Sciences, Prayagraj during Aug-2019 to Feb-2020 in Factorial Plot Design (5×5) with three replications. The data was recorded for 6 parameters. It is concluded from the results of the present investigation, that significant differences were observed for all the characters among the vertical garden plants. 5 vertical garden plants that are partial shade to shade loving were taken. 5 plants are P1 Spider Plant (Chlorophytum comosum), P2Variegated screw pine (Pandanus spp.), P3 Sword fern (Nephrolepis exaltata), P4Syngonium (Syngonium podophyllum), P5 Ipomea (Ipomeabatatus var. black heart) and 5 media compositions are M0- Garden soil, M1-Perlite + Cocopeat + Sand(1:1:1), M2- Perlite + Cocopeat + Sand (1:1:2), M3- Perlite + Cocopeat + Sand (1:2:1), M4- Perlite + Cocopeat + Sand(2:1:1). Among these in the parameter of increasing in plant height, the maximum plant height was recorded at 180 days in P5 (Ipomea) (8.2cm) and in the plant height, maximum range of media was recorded at 180 days in M4 (Perlite + Cocopeat + Sand (2:1:1) (3cm). In the increase in number of leaves, the maximum number of leaves was recorded at 180 days in P5 (Ipomea) (4.1) and in number of leaves, the maximum range of media was recorded at 180 days in M0 (Garden soil) (2.6cm). In the increase in plant spread, the maximum plant spread was recorded at 180 days in P3 (Fern) (909.7cm) and in the plant spread, the maximum range of media was recorded at 180 days in M1(Perlite + Cocopeat + Sand 1:1:1) (652.9cm). In the leaf area, the maximum leaf area was recorded at 180 days in P3 (Fern) (104.2cm2) and in the leaf area, the maximum range of media was recorded at 180 days in M1(Perlite + Cocopeat + Sand 1:1:1) (53.3cm2). In the fresh vegetative mass, the maximum fresh vegetative mass was recorded at 180 days in P3 (Fern) (119.5g) and in the fresh vegetative mass, the maximum range of media was recorded at 180 days in M4 (Perlite + Cocopeat + Sand 2:1:1) (108g). In the root spread, the maximum root spread was recorded at 180 days in P3 (Fern) (21.7cm) and in the root spread, the maximum range of media was recorded at 180 days in M3 (Perlite + Cocopeat + Sand 1:2:1) (20.8cm).
