Here is an idea for a vertical garden in a classroom (plus a fish tank). This could also work in other places -- homes, places of worship, community centres, etc. Maybe even outdoors? With a mesh covering over the fish tank, the cats couldn't get in.
Background would be lovely on both sides of the mirror in my main bathroom! Y- omg I have this exact flowing vase! I even have the littel bamboo pieces on top! (and a couple of very small goldfish that float in it!
