One thing that no one tells you when you start collecting plants is that they get bigger. Seriously, your plants will grow and grow until they start to lean dramatically towards one side. They’ll take up so much space that you’re constantly trimming them back and gifting cuttings to your friends. Alternatively, you could also use a plant support to hold your houseplant up and train it to grow a certain way. In the past, plant supports weren’t really that nice. They consisted of plastic trellises meant to go outside, an ugly stake that looked like a piece of scrap wood, and random bits you may have thought would help keep your plants sturdy. Nowadays we have gorgeous wire plant supports, ones made out of terracotta, and ones that come in different shapes. They are definitely pretty enough to put on display. Here are a few of our favorites.
Bloomscape Round Trellis
If you have a trailing plant but you don’t have space to let the vines hang, a round trellis is a great option for a plant support. This one is made out of copper wire and can be used for new plants and older ones. For the older ones simply wrap the vines around the wire right away. For the younger ones, train your plant as they grow and you’ll soon find the vines will wrap around the trellis on their own.
