Perfect for plants that are falling over or need held upright. The support is sturdy enough to support a plant, but provides enough flexibility to customize to the plant's need. The Splatter can be opened to wrap around the plant before inserting into the soil. Made by hand with 100% bare copper wire. Due to the handmade nature of this product, there may be some slight variation in the size, shape, and color. Copper will naturally tarnish over time, but can easily be shined up again using common household ingredients. As with any plant support, the stability of the trellis will depend on how compact the soil of the plant is. We recommend that 25%-35% of the trellis height be in the soil to maximize support.
