DIY Moss Poles

I’ve been making my own moss poles at home for the past year. Because? Why not.

Well, I thought it was going to be more fun than buying a moss pole off of Amazon plus I don’t really like the look of the premade poles.

If you fancy making up your own, I hope these videos may help you.

Here are the main materials I use to make my own at home;

  • Bamboo sticks
  • Twine
  • Sphagnum moss
  • optional – hessian fabric, I used a coffee sack from Extract Coffee.

There’s a few different variations I’ve made. The simplest just being sphagnum moss wrapped around the bamboo sticks secured with twine. This will suffice for smaller plants. For my larger ones I’ve experimented making thicker poles with the hessian fabric. Some have worked well & some of my larger ones did snap under the weight.

If you’d like to see more DIY Moss Pole videos you can check them out on my YouTube channel. Otherwise I now I have tutorial available.
