So... on top of a bus, even?

It'll be interesting to see if the plants can actually withstand the desiccation associated with exposure at the speeds the buses travel, I suspect not. But just because you've sedum once doesn't mean you've sedum all.


I suspect the speed won't be the problem. The moisture loss as the bus and urban surrounds heat up will be the real test.
