stuff it with thoroughly soaked spaghnum moss?

Hi-
I use 1/4 inch hardware cloth stuffed with wet sphagnum. I secure the
cylinder with plastic airplane ties and affix it to a redwood 1 x 2
stake. Works great.

Hi Enid, Hermine and Ed

Thanks for the suggestions. A constraint I forgot to mention is that my
wife must think that it looks elegant. I'm using a sturdy green plastic mesh
with sphagnum moss within now for the plant, a Philodendron I got from Dewey
some time ago. Alas, it has topped the totem I have. The leaves are getting
smaller again and it is gangly. I could root the top and lop it but I'd
like to grow it one size up...philodendronlings are now sprouting at the
base filling it out nicely.

Clear skies,
Al
