The Art of Shaping Plants: A Guide Into Mossify's Bendable Plant Supports

The Art of Shaping Plants: A Guide Into Mossify's Bendable Plant Supports

Imagine walking into a room where every plant reaches its full potential, spiralling upwards in natural, organic, and creative shapes, thriving as if in their natural habitats. This isn't just a dream—it's a reality made possible by the innovative Original Bendable Moss Pole™, Original Bendable Coir Pole™, and Bendable Moss Pole™ THIN. Created for both the green-thumbed aficionados and those new to the indoor gardening community, these unique, versatile supports are revolutionizing plant care.

The Concept of Bendable Poles

Gone are the days of straight, rigid poles that limit your plant's growth to a single direction. The advent of bendable poles has ushered in a new era of dynamic, creative gardening. Unlike traditional supports, these poles offer flexibility and adaptability, allowing plants to grow in a manner that mirrors their natural environment. But how did we come to this groundbreaking invention?

As the world paused in the early days of 2020, the seeds of innovation were being sown in the realm of indoor gardening. The story of how the Bendable Pole came to be is not just a tale of invention but a testament to creativity and persistence.

From Bonsai to Tropical Plants: A Spark of Inspiration

The concept was sparked by an observation and a simple question we had. While scrolling through Instagram during the lockdown, the prevalence of moss poles in the world of tropical plants was impossible to ignore. Every plant seemed to be paired with a moss pole, and yet, something was missing. Drawing from experience with bonsai, where wires are used to artfully shape and direct the growth of trees, the idea emerged: Why not apply the same principle to tropical plants?

This question marked the beginning of a journey from curiosity to creation. The art of bonsai, with its meticulous attention to detail and form, inspired a vision for a new kind of plant support. 

The path from idea to product was paved with trial and error. The first prototype of the Original Bendable Moss Pole™ was far from perfect, a humble attempt that laid the groundwork for improvement. Each subsequent version was a step closer to the vision, with the third iteration striking the perfect balance between functionality and flexibility.

The Original Bendable Moss Pole™

The Original Bendable Moss Pole™ isn't just a support system; it's a support system that encourages the natural, creative and healthy growth of your indoor plants. By combining 50% premium sphagnum moss and 50% premium forest moss, this pole creates an optimal environment for aerial rooting plants. This combination is key to its success, offering a sustainable, eco-friendly medium that perfectly mimics the natural climbing surfaces found in tropical forests. The mosses used are capable of holding 20 times their weight in water, providing an ideal environment for aerial root growth and ensuring your plants remain hydrated and healthy.

The unique moss blend of the Original Bendable Moss Pole™ is particularly suited for larger plants and those with aerial roots, such as Monstera Deliciosas and larger philodendrons. The moss surface encourages roots to penetrate and anchor, promoting healthier growth and larger leaf development. For gardeners looking to foster a symbiotic relationship between pole and plant, this product offers an ideal solution.

Care and Maintenance:

  • Moisture Management: Whether to keep the pole moist is a personal choice, tailored to your plant's needs. For plants that benefit from aerial roots, maintaining a moist pole can stimulate root penetration and encourage larger leaf growth.
  • Misting Schedule: A light mist 1-2 times a day is recommended for those opting to keep the pole moist, balancing hydration without overdoing it.
  • Watch the Environment: In areas with poor ventilation, be cautious of over-moisturizing, as it could lead to mold. However, with the right conditions, the moss can even rejuvenate, showcasing its resilience and longevity.
  • Dry is Okay: It’s perfectly fine to leave your moss pole dry, catering to gardeners looking for low-maintenance solutions.

The Original Bendable Coir Pole™

Enter the Original Bendable Coir Pole™, handcrafted with premium Manila rope for an unmatched blend of flexibility, durability, and natural beauty. This pole, thinner and more pliable than its mossy counterpart, is perfect for supporting a wide array of plant sizes and shapes, from the delicate tendrils of a vining plant to the robust stems of a climbing one.

The core of the Bendable Coir Pole™'s design lies in its use of premium Manila rope, sourced from the fibers of a banana tree relative. This choice material is not only sustainable but boasts exceptional durability and resistance to water damage. What sets this pole apart is its thinness and pliability, allowing gardeners to bend and shape their plant support in any direction, fostering a truly unique and natural growth environment for climbing, vining, and trailing plants.

The Original Bendable Coir Pole™ is designed with a sturdy granite stone anti-lean base for the 30", 42", and 54" poles, ensuring maximum stability as your plants grow and thrive. This innovative base feature eliminates worries about your plant toppling over as it wraps around its pole, providing peace of mind and allowing you to focus on the beauty of your indoor garden. For those using the 54" Bendable Coir Pole™, we recommend pairing it with a pot at least 10" or larger to ensure a solid foundation for your growing plants.

Key Features & Care:

  • Flexibility Meets Function: Bend and shape in any direction, offering your plants the support they crave in a style that complements your space.
  • Eco-Friendly and Durable: Made with Manila hemp, it's not only sustainable but also resistant to water, ensuring long-lasting support.
  • No Mess, No Fuss: Unlike moss poles, the coir pole doesn't shed, keeping your indoor garden tidy.
  • Watering Needs: Unlike its mossy counterparts, the Bendable Coir Pole™ does not require any watering, making it an ideal choice for gardeners seeking ease and simplicity.
