Just this spring my friend and I decided to make moss poles to tame our wild Monsteras some, they were getting unruly. This was a really fun project to do with friends, and having extra hands is a must if you are making large poles like we did. You can change the size of the poles to meet your needs by going with smaller pvc or the green garden stakes, so they can be used for a variety of climbing plants. In fact I’m planning on making a couple small ones next spring for a Pothos and a Hoya
- Roll of twine
- 1 1/2″ pvc cut to your length
- coco fiber liner
- sphagnum moss
- potting soil and bark
- Monstera or another plant that like to climb.
I recommend adding sphagnum moss here. Pack it in around the pole before rolling it up. We didn’t when we made the poles and they dry out pretty quickly. Sphagnum moss is annoying to work with so if you just roll it inside the coco liner it’s way easier.
Super detailed and helpful! Thanks for posting this!
