These plantstraws are made from polished brass and recycled cotton cord.
Brass gets patina over time - it becomes darker and more rough in contact with soil, water and air.
To maintain or restore the original gloss, use a suitable house hold metal polish and a soft cloth.
The plantstraws now come in two different sizes!
Size medium: For pots up to 16 cm (6 in) high, or all setups with height difference up to 13 cm (5 in).
Size large: For pots from 11 to 26 cm (4.5 to 10 in) high, or all setups with height difference up to 23 cm (9 in).
They are both flexible to use with pots and vases slightly smaller/larger than described above - consider it a rough guide and trust your feeling! The larger plantstraw can add some height to your plantscape or be in balance with big plants, the smaller can hide away and looks perfect with the little ones!
