I am not a regular in this group, but I have occasionally lurked here.
I have been searching the Web for some time for this item,
Many years ago (like 20 or more) I bought, somewhere I forget where, a
pole with an internal spring, so it runs from floor to ceiling and stays
in place by tension. Onto it you affix hangers that support***
plants (it comes with several per pole). The hangers are removable, and
many or few can be put onto a single pole. If they are perfectly
upright, they can support a lot of weight. They were brass colored but
I don't care about color anyway.
I can't find these anymore. They were probably from some mail-order
place like Miles Kimball, but of course are not there, nor are they in
any Garden store I can find, nor have I found them in web searches under
*** poles, plant poles, tension poles,*** gardens, and some
other wild searches that didn't pan out. I did find lots of references
to poles that plants climb up, but that's not what these are (although
some plants do climb up them, that's not their purpose.)
Any ideas? These are wonderful items for people like me who are crazy
for houseplants and short on space. I can't affix hangers to walls or
ceilings, so please don't suggest that.
Thanks very much in advance.
