Alacoque. Plant Stand. September 20th , 2017.
This is not really a stand but is used to pot the plant in a unique and enchanting way. This is one of my favorite garden decor designed with a back to back pair of giraffes that stunningly supports a basket weave urn with a jungle twist. It is a charming way to accent any part of the garden. It is matte finish in ocher and orange earth stones perfect for old-fashion or antique motif.
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.
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.
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.
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.
