Emmeline. Plant Stand. September 14th , 2017.
Initially, the stand should not take focus from the actual plant that it is holding. It is attractive, when you see an elaborate, beautiful stand, to select it on appearance on it`s own. But what happens when you bring it home and place your house plant on it... and all you notice is the stand, not really the plant? The whole idea of having houseplants, after all, is to appreciate the beauty of the plant itself. So while you undoubtedly want an interesting metal plant stand, you also want to ensure that it will highlight your plants, rather than overpower them. Think of your houseplant as a piece of art work, and the metal plant stand as the frame. It must stand out, but do so while remaining quietly in the background, supporting and showcasing the good thing about the plant.
Of course, you want to make certain that the stand itself is big enough to hold your container or plant pot. A good guideline would be to leave somewhere in the region of 2-3 inches of space all around the plant container. Next, think of balance. You want to make sure that your stand won`t move or tip, either inside or outside. Think about the surface you`ll be placing your metal plant stand on. Is it a thickly carpeted surface, hardwood flooring, a timber deck or concrete floor? Heavier metal plant stands are generally gonna be alright on carpeted areas, whilst lighter stands need a firmer, flatter floor to remain stable.
You can create more impact by grouping plants together at varying heights. There are times when a single plant is such a glorious specimen that it must be shown on its own; pedestal stands are the perfect choice for this situation. But imagine walking into a room or onto your patio and being greeted by a mass of blooms amidst a backdrop of luscious green foliage. Thankfully, you can easily find two-tiered, three-tiered and four-tiered plant stands, not to mention other styles with multiple shelves and ample display space to help you create this amazing display. You can use stands to display many personal treasures. Just because it`s called a plant stand doesn`t mean you can`t show off other valued mementos and personal treasures. In addition to or instead of a plant, think about using the space for favorite photos or collections of shells or figurines or whatever else makes you smile. The possibilities are endless.
Starting with what I believe to be the basic is the pedestal plant stand. This is an excellent way to display the single flowering plant, trailing vines, ferns or even a picky cactus. The pedestal stand is a great way to show off smaller plants like an orchid or violet, allowing the plant to make a statement that says look at me. The single stand can be placed in empty or awkward corner to brighten the space or used to flank an entrance to a room. Tiered plant stands are a very popular design. The stand has usually three (sometimes more) individual spots at varies heights for plants, hence the word tiered. This is an ideal arrangement for showing flowering plants that look great grouped together. This type of stand looks wonderful when placed in an area that has a little space, like a foyer. Remember to fit the size of the plant to the stand.
Here`s where your choice of plant stand pattern can really make a difference. The good thing about wrought iron plant plunks or stands is the fact that can be decorative without the plants. Simply put, if you put some bended ironworks in the garden, the garden itself would take care of the colors while the plant plunk takes care of the style. Now if you have a well-chosen plant plunk, your garden would really look good.
