We've come up with a new way to support growing plants and it couldn't be easier. In this post we'll show you how to use your new GreenStalk Plant Support and answer some of our most commonly asked questions.
What plants work well with the Plant Support?
Almost any! Our Plant Support was designed for large plants as well as vines. We've used it for peppers, sugar baby watermelon, tomatoes, cucumbers, squash and sugar snap peas. You could also use it for eggplant, sweet potato vine, and anything else that needs some support to stay upright.
What is the Plant Support made with?
We chose #5 polypropylene plastic along with some specks of glass to give the Plant Support more strength and stability. It can be used in hot sunny weather as well as freezing temperatures. We only use BPA-free, PVC-free and BPS-free plastic.
What colors are available?
We handpicked a eucalyptus green that will compliment all colors of GreenStalk Vertical Planters and it will blend in with your plants. Right now, it's the only color that the Plant Support is available in.
Can I use the Plant Support with another growing system?
The GreenStalk Plant Support was made specifically for our GreenStalk Vertical Planters. It will not work with any other type or brand of planter.
How many Plant Supports do I need?
This depends on how many tiers you have as well as how many large/vining plants you want to grow. For Vertical Planters that only have a few large plants, you may be just fine with one Plant Support. If you plan on growing a tower full of large/vining plants, we recommend one Plant Support per tier.
What should I do with my Plant Supports in the winter?
You can leave your GreenStalk Vertical Planter along with the GreenStalk Plant Supports outside year round, or you can bring them inside. The Plant Supports are easily disassembled and can be reused season after season.
Where is the Plant Support made?
It is proudly made local to us in East Tennessee. Our in-house father and son design team created the GreenStalk Plant Support and the plastic injection mold was made under the same roof in Knoxville, TN. We then sent out the mold to be injected with plastic at local plastics companies. For more info on the process and our other family business, visit Moldesign.com
