Use a Moss Pole to provide extra support for any climbing plant, especially aroids like Philodendron and Monstera species. In their natural habitats, these plants climb up trees in their search for more light, latching on to the moist bark as they climb with aerial roots. We make our moss poles by hand, wrapping sturdy bamboo stakes with a thick layer of moisture-retentive sphagnum moss to create the perfect climbing environment indoors. Moss poles encourage mature foliage, because as your plant climbs, it will sense the support and naturally produce larger leaves.
To use, gently work the exposed bamboo portion of the moss pole as deep as possible into the soil near the base of your plant, taking care not to damage the root ball. Gently tie the vining stems of your plant to the moss pole, so that the root nodes (where leaf meets stem) makes contact with the pole. Keep the moss pole moist at all times; in order for mature foliage to form, the aerial roots must grow into the moss pole.
Our moss poles are available in your choice of 2 feet or 3 feet lengths. The diameter of the moss portion is about 3".
The moss poles arrived very well packed and are made of fresh sphagnum moss. They smell like the forest when soaked in water. The bamboo pole seems sturdy.
Arrived in great condition and my monstera loves it!
This is only my second more pole, but I will definitely be buying more for my aroids. The first I got from a big box store is nowhere near as gorgeous as this one. It’s truly lovely to look at, meaning you don’t mind it being bare until your plant baby grows up on it. I am over the moon for it seriously! The only thing that could have made it better is if it came with a few lil fasteners of some sort. Anywho I have at least 3 more plants to stake up so I can’t wait to get more
