Indoor plants grow beautifully in NZ tree fern.
Growing your vining Aroid up a totem is worth it as it allows your plant to do what it is designed to do, which is to climb. Fern fibre is the perfect material to use for climbing indoor plants as it is natural, similar to a tree, which makes it ideal for your plants to mimic their natural environment.
When indoor plants are staked on a pole or totem, it encourages their growth. Natural vining plants send out aerial roots to try and attach to trees and climb up towards the sunlight. If you stake your indoor plants up on a totem, the leaves will grow large and beautiful.
Our New Zealand tree fern is soft, porous, spongy and long-lasting, and it has fantastic moisture holding abilities. The natural product has a much larger surface area than many other substrates, which means they retain moisture much better.
Native Tree Fern is suitable for:
- Swiss cheese vine
Tree Fern Totems are an ideal mount for aroids, orchids, air plants, ferns and more. Our products are made from New Zealand Tree Fern and are softer and more moisture retentive than boards made from South American or Asian Tree Fern.
Fernwood Indoor Tree Fern Totems:
- Have a natural colour and will turn to a dark chocolate brown when wet
- Offer excellent drainage and aeration
- Can be used in high humidity glass houses without deterioration
Because Fernwood Tree Fern Totems are soft, it is easy to push wires through the fibre. The wire holds fast because of the strong fibrous nature of the totem. Tree Fern Totems can be used by both hobby and commercial growers.
