Have you ever walked into a garden center and smelled the lovely smell of plants in pots on stands? Most likely, you would have walked out of the store with several beautiful and colorful pots on stands. If you have not walked around your neighborhood and visited each one of the homes that have these plants on stands, you may be missing out on one of the loveliest sights on our planet. Plant pots on stands bring a nature-filled ambiance into any area that is used for gardening.
You may be thinking that it is hard to place plants in potting materials. But, this is not true. With new innovations in the world of plant pots on stands, this simple task has been made easier for gardeners. Now you can sit down at your desk or table at work and view your plants from a unique vantage point.
There are a couple of things you should do before buying a potting stand. The first is to decide if you will want a potting benchtop or a traditional stand. Next, you need to decide what kind of pot you would like to use. This includes the type of soil you will need, whether you would like a clay pot, ceramic, glass, or plastic pot. Also, it includes whether you would like to have a plant that is hand-pollinated or one that is chemically treated.
Once you decide on the type of pot and the plants you want, you can visit a nursery or garden center to look at the different varieties available. You can then go home and begin shopping. Remember to look at pictures of plants in their natural surroundings. Also, consider the size of the plants that you want to use.
There are three types of pots that are placed on stands. First, there is the hanging pot, which is also called a pot hanger stand. You will need to hang the pot from support, usually made of metal, and then attach a hook to the bottom of the pot that will enable you to hang it from the support.
The next type is the tabletop stand. It is similar to the hanging pot, but this time you will use two supports to keep the pot in place. These supports are usually made of thin wood or wire. Finally, there is the free-standing stand. In this case, the pots and plants sit on a piece of furniture that has a small support structure to keep them in place.
Now that you know the basics of choosing the right potting materials, let's look at how to plant your plants. Start with a small amount of soil so that your plants will have everything they need to grow. Then, choose a container with about one inch of gravel on top. If you are growing Mediterranean plants, consider using a terra cotta pot, but if you are starting with a colder climate, try a stone or ceramic pot for your Mediterranean plants.
Once you have planted your plants into their new containers, you should water them well. Keep in mind that you should only water your plants when the soil is still slightly damp, as watering right after you plant can cause your plants to become moldy or even rot. After a while, you will probably want to repot your plants. However, be sure you are watering your plants well, as you do not want your plants to become stressed and possibly die if the soil becomes too dry.
