Description

Moss poles help your plant grow larger, faster and happier by emulating their natural environment. Our extendable moss poles are handmade with beautiful and fresh sphagnum moss, birch wood, mossing wire and twine. We make each pole to order in just 1-2 days.

We only use our own handpicked moss from our sites in the North of Scotland which we offer in a variety of natural colours. Our moss locations are on private land where there are forestry operations. We spread out our picking locations so as not to overpick any one spot, allowing regrowth. By doing this, we also have a beautiful variety in our sphagnum mosses, with beautiful vibrant colours. 

Our moss poles aren’t just a way of adding humidity, encouraging growth and providing support – they are a beautiful addition in their own right to your plant collection.

Perfect for Monstera and climbing plants with aerial roots. such as Pothos and Philodendron. Moss poles don’t just provide support and stability, they give your plant a more natural environment. This stimulates growth and helps grow larger leaves.

You can get a pole or extension in three colour variations:

  • Classic green/brown
  • Pink
  • Mixed (alternating stripes of classic and pink)

Please note that this is natural moss without any dye, so there will be some variations in colours.

Please check the height of your plant to choose the best length of the pole. If you are between sizes it is better to go for the bigger size as the plant will grow.

We recommend a pole about 10-20cm taller than the height of your plant.

Allow approximately 10cm for the length of the stake going into the soil.

How to use

We have made a video guide to show you how to install your moss pole – Check it out here.

Insert next to your plant with a healthy distance from its roots. Don’t worry if some moss is immersed in the soil.

Spray the pole with water when misting your plant, it will keep moisture for longer and helps to keep required humidity.

Attaching an extension

  • Carefully spread any moss on the top of your pole to the side.
  • Line up the screw in the extendable pole with the hole in the existing pole.
  • Gently hold each pole and twist to screw them together.
  • You can gently adjust the pole if it hasn’t gone on completely straight, the wood is quite soft and will allow a small amount of adjustment.
  • Make sure the poles are screwed tightly together and you have a flush connection!

Care

We have made a handy care guide for your moss pole, view it here.

Please be aware the the moss pole is created from natural materials which are fragile and should be handled with care.

Spray with water every few days or as required to keep the moss lush and in good shape.

Moss will get darker and more colourful when wet. If you prefer this look spray with water on a regular basis.

If your moss pole dries out, you can revive it by giving it a good soak and the moss will bounce back.

Beautiful moss pole which really compliments my monstera

Very pleased with my moss poles. However, I would say the mechanism for attaching extensions to moss poles needs to be a bit more robust/durable. These are quite heavy-weight when wet and the attachment screw is barely long enough to keep a long extended pole stable with a newly attached monstera or raphidophora!

  1. The moss pole looks very natural, very well made and I’m sure my monstera is going to love it

  2. The pole itself is very well made, but I find that this particular form of moss pole dries out way too quickly for me and requires almost daily watering/misting. Although well made and sturdy it’s also too heavy for the pot size I used with it (17cm). I’m glad I didn’t order the extension.

Q & A

I’m about to order the moss stick extension but do these come with metal clips to attach, if not, do you sell them? I did try to check on your website but couldn’t find any. Felicity Ward asked on February 5, 2024

Hi Felicity,

Thank you for your question. The moss pole extensions screw into the base pole/other extensions.

They don't use clips or anything like that and are not compatible with poles made anywhere else. Our moss poles are completely our own design, handmade by us.

So if yo do not have a base pole already you would need to add one of those to your cart and then you can add the extensions as needed.

Let me know if I can provide any more help.

Thank you,

Craig

Can you attach more than one extension pole? ie can you attach an extension to an extension? Once extended, are the poles strong enough to support a full sized monstera without the risk of toppling? Oliver Todd asked on September 25, 2023

Yes, I have tested with 3 x 60cm and it is fine. If you need to move the plant just make sure to support the pole so it doesn't start bouncing about.

There isn't any issue with supporting the plant when stationary and it could potentially go higher.

The poles screw into each other. The extensions are all double ended with a steel screw in one end and a hole in the other. The bass pole has a stake area and a hole on top.

I made them this way as the cone stack style I have seen in other poles can get really loose and wobbly.

How long can you leave the moss before it will dry out and die? Oliver Todd asked on September 25, 2023

This depends on the environment. If you have a humidifier by the pole then a little spray down once or twice a week is enough. If you don't, I recommend watering every couple of days. It's easier to make it a routine wee misting than let it totally dry out first.

However, moss is really resilient and dead looking moss can be revived in time. It also remains functional but less effective if it does dry out, more like a coir pole.

We include a QR with some helpful information on a swing tag on the moss pole to help you install and maintain it.

Are the extendable moss poles more like the 'skinny' poles or 'chunky' poles? Holly Taylor asked on September 22, 2022

Hi, thank you for your question!

The extendable poles sort of sit in between, with a generous covering of moss. This is so that whenever you order an extension it will look 'right' with the existing moss pole.

Of course, as they are handmade there is some degree of variation but after making so many they are pretty much uniform in size.

Hope this helps!

How do I measure what size pole I need please? Fay asked on August 7, 2022

Hi Fay,

Thank you for your question. To get the right size of pole, measure the plant from the soil to the top leaf. If your stems are going off to the side then pull those up if possible to get a better idea of the height of the plant when the pole will be on it.

Then add 10cm for the part of the pole going in the soil. You may also want to order a pole a little taller than the plant, this is up to your preference.

So for example, your plant is 80cm from the soil to the top leaf. So we would advice a 90cm pole (which would be a 60cm base plus a 30cm extension).

Hope this helps!

Thanks,

Craig
