Buying Guide

Indoor plant stands are an attractive way to display potted plants or even small pieces of artwork. They also, although this is not a standard use, make a moveable surface for a mousepad and mouse at a computer workstation. In short, they create a small, usable surface that can be placed where it is convenient or attractive.

What are the different designs of indoor plant stands?

Simple Single Surface Plant Stand

A simple single surface plant stand is an excellent choice for supporting plants such as African Violets that have peculiar light requirements and are sufficiently fragile so as to need protection from jostling. The stand allows the plant to be placed away from other items. It is also this size stand that works well as an auxiliary mouse pad surface, relieving stress on the forearm and shoulder joint by providing the ability to place the mouse operating surface where it is most convenient to the user.

Stepped Tray Plant Stand

A stepped tray plant stand provides an excellent arrangement for items such as an indoor herb garden or trays for growing microgreens. The upper shelf is excellent for small herbs such as chives or parsley, while the lower trays, which are wider, are the perfect support for seedlings or microgreens. Some stands of this kind can be folded up and stored when not needed, or easily ported to different light and temperature venues.

Wrought Iron Tall Plant Stand

A wrought iron tall shelving unit looks delicate with its filigree of scrolled wires and arched top on back and sides. Its sturdy shelves, however, can easily support heavy pots securely without the fatal shading that occurs with solid shelves. It is the perfect plant stand to place near a tall window or sliding glass patio door. Your houseplants or winter herb garden will appreciate the secure footing and the extra light.

Spiral Stair Step Plant Stand

While not as efficient in use of space as some simpler stands, a wrought iron stairway of planting surfaces creates a graceful display for your best houseplants. Add a few trailing ivy vines and intersperse with succulents or the upright sharpness of Mother-in-Law’s Tongue, and you can quickly have an attractive display. Perfect for placing in open areas, slightly away from windows for plants that like indirect light.

Simple Framed Tall Plant Stand

A framed plant stand provides an excellent staging area for light-loving plants that require placement near a tall window. It is a good choice for bringing in the garden herbs as winter begins to move in or a place to harden off seedlings in preparation for moving them to the garden in the spring.
