Halette. Plant Stand. September 29th , 2017.
I`ve what some would call a brown thumb. I can`t appear to keep a plant alive until it`s meant to be a hardy plant that requires little or no care. I don`t know why I`ve such a problem, but I do. Once I do find a plant that can survive my very own special brand of neglect, as you can think of it, I am overjoyed. That means I wish to hold that plant. However, if it is not me trying to kill it, it`s my pets or my kid. That means I would like plant stands to keep them up and out of the way in which if in any respect possible.
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.
Starting on the floor, with the taller plants off to the side, it is possible to put more plants on ever taller plant stands placed behind each other to create a virtual bank or wall of greenery and flowers which will not take up too much space in a room. There is a great variety of plant stands available, those that stand by themselves for just one plant, others that come in a set of two or three at various heights. Yet others come in spirals with platforms for several flowerpots, or in the form of a baker`s rack that holds even more potted plants. There are also plant stands that can be folded up for storage, when no longer needed and others that have wheels for easy moving. Depending on the size of the plant, as well as the kind of pot used, one also must consider how sturdy the plant stand is constructed. A huge fern in a clay pot needs a considerably more solid stand than a small geranium in a plastic container.
You also ought to understand that there is the need in choosing the correct plant stand that can go with the size of the plant that will be placed within. And so, a small plant will go well with small stand while a big one will need a big stand as well. Do not place an extremely small plant in a very big stand or it will be totally off! Another thing to consider in choosing for the right stand is to take into account the color of the plant that will be placed inside. For gorgeous blooms, go for neutral color while you can choose stands in wide range of colors for those plants that comes too plain.
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.
