Plant stem falling over – here's the 0$ solution from nature

The other day I noticed that the stem of one of my houseplants was falling over. At that point I couldn't do anything to it than to find something to support it.

Pre neki dan sam primetila da je stabljika jedne od sobnih biljki nakrivljena. U tom trenutku jedino rešenje je bilo da pronađem nešto za potporu kako bih je uspravila.

Plant stem falling over – here's the 0$ solution from nature

The challenge was that the plant is relatively young and it is in a small flower pot, so I couldn't use one of those plant stem holders that look like a ladder. It would be too bulky for such a small plant. I also wanted to use something that is pretty, and those ladder holders (most of the time) are not.

Izazov je to što je biljka relativno mlada i što se nalazi u maloj saksiji, tako da nisam mogla upotrebiti neke od onih merdevina za cveće. Izgledale bi glomazne naspram tako male biljke. Takođe, htela sam nešto što izgleda lepo, a te merdevine, u većini slučajeva, tako ne izgledaju.

So, a light bulb went on (the one in my head). I could use a tree branch!

Tada se upalila lampica (ona u mojoj glavi). Mogu da upotrebim granu drveta

I found a firm tree branch (it was already cut off from the tree), cut off all the excess and voila. The idea is to form a V shape on top of the branch and to rest the plant stem in that gap.

Pronašla sam čvrstu granu (koja je prethodno već bila odsečena sa stabla), odstranila višak i voila. Ideja je da se formira V oblik na vrhu grane i da se stabljika tu "ugnjezdi".

I love this because it is sturdy enough to hold a stem, but small enough to not look bulky against the plant, it doesn't cost anything, and it is pretty.

Sviđa mi se ovo rešenje jer je grana dovoljno čvrsta da drži stabljiku, a dovoljno mala da ne izgleda glomazno naspram biljke, ne košta ništa, a i lepo je.
