It’s in and it’s huge!! I can’t wait to get started, we’re doing this over a long span of time because I have to re paint my new room where this will go.

Hey guys I know it’s been a while but we’ve finally started moving and it should be easier to get going. One of my friends helped me and we had quite the demo day. We knocked out the shelves and kept one to use as a barrier for the substrate layers and the door. We’re going to cut a few inches off the top because it’s 22 inches and we need 14 lol. We’re going to flex seal it and then move on to mounting branches!

??? Don't understand this. :unsure:

What are the inside dimensions of the whole armoire? (My guess is that it was originally an armoire someone converted into an entertainment cabinet.)

Yay progress!!! We siliconed and waterproofed the bottom and drilled in the sticks! Pots and foaming is next which I’ll probably be a little while because we have to order the pots from amazon so stay tune

Annnnnd scratch that my pots came in today so here we are. I’m a little short on money in terms of foam and soil so I have to work a little before I can but them but we have this for now, there’s a total of 24 plants that will be mounted and 6 In the actual soil.

I'm a little concerned about a few of the pots, e.g. top center back. Not enough room to get a 2nd pot in or out, and if foamed in-place and it ever had to be removed, relocated, or replaced (for whatever), it might involve some major surgery on the enclosure. Looks like transplanting something out & something else in might also be a pain.

Just sayin'... thinking ahead, planning for contingencies, etc. Better to move a few now than after they're foamed in-place. ;) But it's up to you; I tend to overthink at times.

Does not look like the pots are anchored well to the wall... you may have issues. Once you add weight they may try to pull away from the wall. Even with Foam you would have to do a ton if that is your main support. Like a ton.
Yeah I think so too. How are you connecting it to the wall to begin with?
