Why Use a Moss Pole?
In their natural habitats, tropical plants climb up trees in their search for light, latching on to the moist bark as they climb with aerial roots. Moss poles encourage mature foliage, because as your plant climbs, it will sense the support and naturally produce larger leaves.
To use, gently press the a portion of your moss pole as deep as possible into the soil near the base of your plant, taking care not to damage the root ball. Gently tie the vining stems of your plant to the moss pole, so that the root nodes (where leaf meets stem) makes contact with the pole. Keep the moss pole moist at all times; in order for mature foliage to form, the aerial roots must grow into the moss pole. When dry, pour water on top of the moss pole and it will gradually spread down your moss pole.
