I learned from Craig Milran on Instagram and through the internet that by potting your pothos with a moss pole, you give the plant the upright structure it needs (and would have in nature) to encourage larger mature leaves, as opposed to the smaller leaves produced on an unsupported plant that puts it in "trail and find light" mode. Also helps with humidity - something I'm constantly fighting with here in Arizona.
My Golden Pothos is my first try with a moss pole. I repotted the freshly separated sections in a circle around the well-saturated pole, then adhered some of the inner stalks to the moss pole using plant Velcro in my new beautiful pot from @potey (now I want all my pots to be cylindrical 😭) it was really easy!
Everything I mentioned is available in my Plant Mama list on Amazon! (https://amzn.to/351SDh5)
My name is literally mud. Mud with secret moss inside, waiting to emerge and dazzle us all!
My new friends over at Simply Mossy Art sent me this awesome moss frame in celebration of their grand opening and ITS SO COOL!
Setup was ✨amazing✨ and took no time at all. I'm so in love with the whole process 🥰 Moss is a slow grower, so it'll be a few months before this frame shows it's stuff, and I'm in for the long run.
I was really proud to have been brought in by Simply Mossy Art owner Lucas Picciolo, who contacted me via Instagram to get my opinion on his burgeoning business. I'm honored to say that I was able to be involved in the launch of someone's business. It was also incredibly motivating to be connected with Lucas through my involvement in the Plant Parent community on Instagram - looks like I'm doing something right!
Simply Mossy Art isn't just about owning a cool, living art piece. The frames are handmade and hand finished from reclaimed pieces of wood from construction sites that would otherwise be discarded. The company has also partnered with One Tree Planted to plant one tree for every frame sold.
I'm digging the living art vibes coming off this thing. I'm feeling the fires of inspiration and wonder what other ways I can implement more living art in the house. More moss? A plant wall? Who knows!
