Interiorscape (Aquascape and Terrarium Displays)
Riding on the growing trend for indoor gardening, the Interiorscape section will feature both aquascapes and terrarium displays. Aquascapes are underwater gardens where aquatic plants and other elements such as rocks and sand are pieced together to create submerged landscapes. These displays will inspire all visitors to explore indoor gardening regardless of the size of the living space they have.
Innovation and Technology (Microgreens, Hydroponics, Grow-lights, Herbs, Vegepot, Plantui)
The use of innovative technologies, such as smart gardening, grow lights and garden bed kits, are also on the rise. Learn about the commercial applications of these technologies and how they can be incorporated into the home for novel gardening projects.
