Elevating Your Indoor Plants For Beauty

To elevate your indoor plants you need a collection of plant stands or pedestals.

Plant Stands For Your Houseplants

The indoor gardener who wants to decorate with plants would be wise to accumulate a collection of plant stands and pedestals, along with plant pots and cachepots, and to collect them in pairs for elegant two-of-a-kind displays. Among the most striking low stands are the Oriental footed stands used under Imari bowls or Japanese flower arrangements. These black or brown wooden stands may have elaborate carving. Using stands like these is instant decorating magic.

A tall plant stand or pedestal can elevate a mass of foliage to the size of a small tree and serve visually as a "trunk." Instead of trying to grow a ficus where a ficus can't grow, use a spathiphyllum or some other low-light plant on a pedestal to give the height and grace of a tree, as well as ease of maintenance.

Tall stands can also be topped with seasonal displays of forced blooms. In spring, use tulips (10 bulbs per 10-inch pot); in summer, fill the stands with white flowering angel wing begonias; and at Christmastime, display pink poinsettias.
