Halette. Plant Stand. September 16th , 2017.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The level of winter protection required depends on where you live and how exposed your garden is. For example, in a sheltered city garden, you may get away with not protecting tender plants at all. Depending on your circumstances, you may be able to simply move plant pots and plant stands to a sheltered area of your garden. For plants that require warm environments that are potted or small enough to be dug up, simply move them indoors for the winter. Summer flowering bulbs can be dug up and dry stored in a frost free place. For larger plants and trees that are in-ground, you`ll have no option but to nurse them through the freezing conditions, using horticultural fleece and a heavy mulch covering.
