Alexandrin. Plant Stand. September 08th , 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.
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.
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.
Once you have made the decision to use plants in the home, displayed on attractive stands and grown in decorative pots, what types of containers can you expect to find in the stores, whether local or online? They tend to come in a variety of materials, the more common being wood, wrought iron and other metals, and wicker. Less common, but very appealing alternative base materials, can be found in porcelain, marble, stone, and acrylic.
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.
