Ornamental Stand Plants

Plant stands serve a definite and concrete purpose: They provide a safe and secure place for you to position your plants to receive optimum levels of sunlight and fresh air. However, plant stands need not look utilitarian. Some stands can be as ornamental as the lush green plants that rest upon them.

Wrought Iron

Wrought iron plant stands come in a variety of heights and shapes, including wrought iron stands that are built especially for corners, ones that have several tiers to display plants at various heights, or pedestal stands that showcase a single plant. Such stands are ideal for plants that drape, as the leaves and vines can wrap around the slim legs of the stand. Wrought iron stands often come with details and adornments attached to the stand or incorporate pieces of carved wood for a distinctive look. Wrought iron is easy to maintain and clean, requiring basic dusting. They're also easy to move, allowing you the freedom to rearrange plants as needed to tak advantage of light, moisture and other conditions. They also come in a wide variety of prices for every budget. However, iron can rust if left outside, so should be considered for indoor or dry areas.

Wooden

Because crafters can sculpt and carve wood readily, wood plants stands are available in an enormous range of looks, from simple nesting plant stands, pedestals with ornate carvings or oriental-style stool stands for a minimalist yet exotic look. Because wood is so adaptable, you can always repaint or stain for a different burst of colour or apply crackle paint to the surface for a shabby-chic look. Wood doesn't always react well with water, and certain styles of pots can drip water and encourage wood rotting. Opt for plant stands that have a protective sealant on top of the wood. Alternatively, use pots with catch basins to keep the wood dry.

Stone

Stone plant stands give a regal, permanent quality to the plants and are also suitable for the outdoors. Select stands with a slate surface top or go for something that is bolder, such as a pedestal stand made out of a solid block of carved stone. Some plant stands consist of carved stone made to look like columns to give your room an elegant quality. Stone plant stands are fine to leave outside, even in the coldest of winters. However, because of their heft, stone stands are difficult to move, especially once a large plant has been introducedto the pot. For this reason, you'll also have to clean the stands in place. Stone plants stands, particularly ones made out of a solid piece of stone, such as a pedestal stand, tend to be more expensive than other materials.
