Purpose-built stands for indoor house plants are a great way to “show off” your beautiful plants. They are made in a range of materials, designs and styles, from very simple “minimalist” to ornate wrought iron. There us a style to suit all tastes. Most stands are built to suit smaller plants.
Popular And Practical
A practical and commonly sought after stand is the “single combination”, which consists of three stands, each of a similar design but in different heights. This design is an ideal choice for empty spaces and corners. They are also the best design to display long flowing stemmed plants to their best effect.
A tiered stand is another style that is often used. Tiered stands can contain between two to five tiers and they are best suited for use with smaller plants. Tiered plant stands can prettily fill up a dull corner of a room.
Many people opt for the dramatic effect of the hanging plant stand. There are a number of designs of hanging plant stands but the basic premise is that either a single plant or group can be displayed somewhat akin to a lamp. Some can be in free standing mode; while others like the phalaenopsis orchid can be attached to the ceiling or the wall. Another design is one that is secured between both the ceiling and the floor as a semi permanent “wall” of plants, creating a living divider.
A stand designed to fit on a benchtop or sunny window sill in the kitchen is an ideal stand for plants such as herbs used in cooking, making those delicious additions to your cuisine readily available. Such use requires a smaller stand, although larger versions can be useful outdoors.
If you are looking to create a restful, natural atmosphere in your home, plant stands are ideal as they help you to arrange your plants to achieve the look you desire. As these plants take care of your home aura, choosing the right stand is also one way of proper plant care. They also make the task of changing plants easier as smaller stands that accommodate a number of plants can be moved easily in and out of the garden. Look in your local DIY store or garden supply store for the range they have available. Alternatively, you could shop for a stand online simply by typing in “plant stands” into your search engine.
