Homemade plant support systems (HPSS) - How do you support a plant that needs it..
Just thought I would start a thread (been a while since i've seen an updated thread on this particular subject). If your wondering about what exactly I am talking about well I guess I'll have to explain what exactly it is.. that I'm talking about.
Alright, I'm sure many of you if not most of you.. have all experienced the 'leaning plant' syndrome. I'm talking about young plants.. that are maybe a week into veg cycle. Sometimes, you get the ones that want to lean over to one side.. just a little to much. I don't like seeing young plants (at least not mine) leaning so far over.. it makes me nervous... as I like to try and provide the best artificial environment for my indoor growing as possible.
Well, usually when I see a young plant that's wanting to lean over to one side or another.. a little too much leaning.. I like to just simply add more soil to the container (if possible).. in order to add some stability around the plants main stem.
So, I am wondering.. as to what methods other people have used.. in order to help a plant stand up straight as possible.
So, if you would like to share your 'support method'.. as to what kind of materials (if any) you use for making the 'support' from.
I've thought about cutting a straw to length.. and then slitting open the side (long ways down) of the straw.. so that you can open the straw up.. then place it next to the plants stem.. and then release it.. so that the straw will then close back up to its natural position. Then, I add more soil.. to stabilize the straw... so that it can then become a operational support system for the plants main stem.. and keep the plant in as close to an upright position as possible.
What other methods have you guys and gals used?
