Lucille. Plant Stand. September 29th , 2017.
Most of us absolutely adore plants and want to show them off every last place we can, so let`s take a look at the major features of picking a metal plant stand. Metal is durable and strong, and also fits in with a wide range of decors from conventional to ultra-modern. But there`s more to deciding on the best one than just going with what is attractive to you visually. Just before you pay your hard earned cash for a brand new stand, here are a couple of things you may want to keep in mind.
Most house plants are tropical and many of us keep them outside on plant stands to decorate patios for a beautiful summer garden. However once the weather starts to change, you`ll need to bring them back in. Some tropical plants should be moved indoors as early as when temperatures start reaching 55-60 degrees Fahrenheit. It`s not just tropical plants that require extra attention. Frost can damage tender plants, summer flowering bulbs, early sowings, cuttings and new plants. This includes things like geraniums, cannas, callas, gingers, aroids, ensetes, tulips and lilies. A little research will pay dividends, so get to know your plants and their lower temperature tolerances.
Digging up your perennials for winterisation can be beneficial for other reasons. When flowering decreases or the plant starts to die out in the centre, it ought to be divided to stop it from dying out. This means you can kill two birds with one stone. It will also give you extra plants to make decorative displays on plant stands for next year. Some tender perennials such as lavender or rosemary like a period of dormancy in winter. It may be better to keep these in the garage or shed. They won`t enhance your indoor space so there`s no point keeping them in ornate plant stands, pots and holders. They won`t freeze but will stay dormant. Just don`t let the pots dry out. Some plants will not enjoy rooms with central heating; it will be a shock to their system and dry them out too much. If this is the case, you may find that it would be better to care for them outside.
I`ve what some would call a brown thumb. I can`t appear to keep a plant alive until it`s meant to be a hardy plant that requires little or no care. I don`t know why I`ve such a problem, but I do. Once I do find a plant that can survive my very own special brand of neglect, as you can think of it, I am overjoyed. That means I wish to hold that plant. However, if it is not me trying to kill it, it`s my pets or my kid. That means I would like plant stands to keep them up and out of the way in which if in any respect possible.
If you are one of those people who thinks there is no such thing as too many plants in your home and garden, then you are probably also one of those people who is trying to figure out where to put them all and how to really show them off. The perfect solution for your dilemma is to start using plant stands. Why? Here are five answers to that very question: You can quit worrying about damaged floors. As you may already have discovered, when potted plants sit directly on a floor surface, the possibility of water damage is pretty high: moisture accumulates, containers leak and drain saucers overflow. When your plants are placed on the appropriate stand, however, you can completely eliminate that risk since whatever moisture there is will not be in direct contact with the floor.
