You also have to think about color. Always consider the colors of the flowers of the plants you will be displaying. Complementary colors or neutral tones should be considered when purchasing a plant stand. Size is also important. Make sure that your plant pot will fit on top of the stand. The top of the stand needs to be a little larger than your container. This will be more aesthetically pleasing as well as stable. For plant stands to remain standing upright, all that is usually necessary is a solid and level floor. When displaying heavy or large items, you should take care to get a stand that can support the weight while still being appropriate for your flooring. As an example, a pedestal of light weight probably would not be the right thing if the floor has plush carpeting. If you have hardwood floors, however, this base will work just fine.
Another place to consider in your search for an indoor plant stand with character is at flea markets. This is what flea markets are all about. Many flea markets tend to have a bunch of mixed items all together but many do not even realize that you can find great stands for cheap at these places. I have actually had people offer to trade me an item for a plant stand and when I had nothing to trade the man just gave me the plant stand that I was interested. It is just a great place to check out and I would check out your local flea market and see what is available in where you are located.
Since plants need light, it is best to place them near a window. In many homes, unfortunately, that is also where the heater is located. If that is so, move your plant display to another bright area in the room and possibly consider adding a light, especially made for growing plants, nearby. Whether you choose a clay pot plant stand or any other container plant stand indoors, make sure you place a tray or dish under your plants to prevent water damage to your floors when watering.
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.
Plant stands are popular at any time of year and are used for various reasons. Giving height to the display of plants, keeping hungry rabbits at bay, preventing marks on the floor as well as the most frequent reason, to save space. Outdoors most people have plenty of room with many places to display favorite potted plants, be it on the ground, on a rock or on a wall. But, come Winter, when delicate plants need to be moved indoors, space often becomes a problem. Then pot plant stands are ideal because so many more plants can be staggered in a relatively small space.
