Alacoque. Plant Stand. September 26th , 2017.
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.
As you can see from the materials alone, the choice is wide enough to enable you to find a stand that complements your home decor, both in color theme and style. From classic to ultra modern, suitable choices are there to be found. You will even find some attractive combination`s of these materials in some stands, such as a luxuriously carved wooden pedestal stand with a marble top.
The first place to consider is garage sales. I have come across plant stands by the hundreds when I go out to garage sales and the best part is they are extremely cheap. You can have great finds with home décor items like this at garage sales and they are definitely an original piece of furniture that I would bet is rare if it is a truly good find. The only worry that I have come across is the condition. I would just make sure there is no rust or visible damage. I have come across some plant stands with water damage and rust damage and it would not be worth buying if it is falling apart. Unless the damage adds some sort of character to the stand that is not going to leave rust stains on your carpet, by all means ring it up. Most plant stands at a garage sale should run you around $5-$15 depending on size and material it is made out of.
Small and delicate plants like a pot of Primulas and huge ferns may look great if placed in a sturdy metal plant stand. However, it is very important to make sure that these metal stands are huge enough to hold any type of plant containers or planters to protect it from sudden movements and unwanted damages over time. Such type of stands can be availed from a variety of metals such as brass and cast iron. However, they can be subjected to corrosion or rusting. To make it last longer to use, you need to apply a metal sealant or a metal spray paint to ensure protection and durability.
Some plants stands are only for decoration. If in case you have a green thumb and have a ton of thriving vegetation in your house, it is a great way to present them off. You will get plants stands which have one or two spots in your plants, or you may get bigger ones that might hold eight or ten of them in a single spot. If you`re forgetful about watering, having many in one place could be an ideal reminder for you.
