Grow Vertical Propstick - 33cm MINI BLACK

$14.50 NZD

Grow Vertical are my favourite type of support pole. I love how easy and fun they are to assemble, how stable they are, and that you can customise them different substrates. Plus they're reusable over-and-over, with a different substrate each time if you like, without having to cut aerial roots. And they're extendable. That's a lot to say yes to for your plants.

 What size is the Mini? 

The mini measures 33cms tall x 5.5cms wide. Ideal for all your climbing babies with enough height to keep them happy for some time. When ready, you can upgrade to the Grow Vertical Pro (70cms tall), or chop and prop, make new babies free, and keep using the Mini. Grow Vertical are reusable too, just grab a handful of cable ties and shift it to a new plant, or try new substrate.

 How do Grow Vertical compare to stick moss poles? 

I find these much easier to keep moist compared to those round, wrapped moss poles on sticks. You can keep your Grow Vertical moist with a spray mister if you want, but my favourite method is to just tilt then pour water straight down the back of my Grow Vertical pole. The curved shape acts like a funnel. Excess water drains down and out through the pot's drainage holes like normal. No spills. No wet walls or shelves  from misting. Faster and less wasteful than misting, plus you can more thoroughly wet the pole substrate to the core for less frequent watering too.

I also love that I don't have to damage precious aerial roots if I want to change the pole, or sell the plant but keep the pole, as there's no need to cut the roots to remove them like I have to with the round, wrapped moss poles. I'm currently working through my jungle and replacing all my moss poles with Grow Vertical supports. I love that these don't degrade or bend over time and are more secure and stable when I have move plants. 

 Which colour Grow Vertical Mini is best? 

The Mini comes in Black or Clear. My first Grow Vertical was black, but now I have them both, and do love the clear for playing 'I Spy' watching aerial roots grow inside. The clear looks extra fab coupled with a clear pot, but the black is more classic and polished. It shows off the plant's foliage better (plus the cable ties are also black, so black on black hides everything better for a more minimal look). Swipe through the photos to see both.


 Which plants benefits from support poles? 

Many indoor plants are epiphytes that just want to climb! In their natural habitat they grab on and climb up trees. Give them something to get their aerial roots into and you'll be rewarded with bigger leaves and faster growth. I also find mine who I've given poles become less leggy and more full and leafy, compared to when they're left to vine instead of climb. Giving climbing plants the opportunity to climb helps them reach their maximum genetic potential. 

That includes Monstera, Pothos, Philodendron, Epipremnum, Orchids and more. 

 What comes in a Grow Vertical pack? 

Each pack comes with the back panel in the colour of your choice, the front mesh, and mini cable ties. Easy to assemble. No tools needed. Just add substrate. Sphagnum Moss is often used, but my jungle loves theirs with Fern Fibre (see the photos for ideas). You can use any substrate that won't escape from the mesh.

 How do you assemble a Grow Vertical? 

1. Attach the mesh by threading cable ties through the pre-drilled holes along both sides of the back panel. No tools needed.

2. Secure the ties starting at the top, curving the back panel as you go. Before securing the bottom, put substrate in to the height your plant needs support (or assemble fully first, then push the substrate in from the bottom or top later). Add more substrate later as the plant climbs.

The mesh is a shorter than the back panel. Line it up with one end of the panel (that will be the top). The open bottom end goes into the pot substrate for stability. 

3. Place your pole anywhere you want within the pot. I prefer to locate it at the 'back' with the plant in the middle, creating a 'front' to display your plant. Secure your plant with plant velcro or plant ties until aerial roots have attached.

"My Monstera Dubia is loving it’s new home on a Grow Vertical moss pole. Since it’s a climber and loves humidity I wanted to give it something to climb. The thought of creating moss poles was always on my mind but these grow vertical poles are so easy to install and to set up." @wheneyesee

This is for the pole only, substrate not included. Spagmoss and Fern Fibre are the most popular options. Compare those are more substrates here
