Lucille. Plant Stand. September 18th , 2017.
Many people bring their plants indoors for winter, in the conservatory, kitchen or dining room. As well as protecting your plants, you can display them in decorative plant stands and holders to brighten your day and enhance your living space throughout the dull, grey winter. In recent years, it`s become the norm for us to have a mixture of traditional trees and shrubs with exotic plants such as tree ferns, bananas and bamboos in our gardens. It may be rewarding to grow something in the UK that you`d normally see in the Mediterranean countryside or barren desert but these plants will take a lot of care in the winter months.
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.
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.
One place that I have never bought a plant stand from but have seen really nice plant stands at, is at home shows. These places offer really nice quality goods for your home. They offer brand names and original finishes that are hard to finds in other places. Most of the time home shows carry designs that are patented and have numerous options for you to choose from with the best in technology available. Another great thing is that the plant stands are completely new. You can even take them home with you or if they do not have them on hand most of the time they will want to take your order and can ship straight to your door. The only negative is that they tend to be a bit pricey. Most of these booths at the home shows cost a bunch of money to rent and the prices show that. This is just another place to consider if you are looking for places to buy original indoor plant stands.
