Default Stop your pots from tipping over !!

To keep your pots and containers from tipping over.
I push rebar through the soil in the pot and out the hole on the side of the pot.
1/2 inch rebar is cut into 24 inch lengths pushed into the ground.
Bigger pots use longer rebar,usually one piece will do....your call.
There is nothing worse than a bent pstem from a pot that has tipped over and has gone unnoticed for a couple of days.



This is what a plant will do if gone unnoticed ....note the bend...the plant will always
grow towards the light. It took three days to do this and 21 days to make it straighten out.

I use bamboo for pins; easily lasts a season when the potted guys find their way back into a greenhouse (of sorts).
For those plants that do need "straightening", they get re-potted with the corm rotated slightly so the p-stem is back 'straight'.
