Super Trellis is a system that can be utilized for all sizes very small plants and large. Different configurations can be built with varying levels of strength.
A 2D (flat) trellis can be built up to 12” tall and support plants such as Pothos, Philodendron, Begonia, and Hoya. These plants have relatively flexible stems and will not stress the trellis very much. Your trellis can be built up taller than 12” as time goes on, but extra support will be needed. 12" is a rule of thumb for the height of a flat trellis that will stand upright on it's own.
Once your trellis has grown to about 12-15”, it is recommended to use our Corner Kit to build in some extra stability. This kit will allow you to build a two sided trellis at a 90 degree angle, or a four sided “totem”. Once you have incorporated corners into your build, the potential heights are endless.
We have built trellises for large, heavy plants such as Monstera with great results. Plants that are currently secured using moss poles, (etc) can be trellised with Super Trellis for "drama free" support into the future!
Our products are currently made from sustainably sourced materials and produced in our facility in Buffalo, NY. The specific materials used are called PLA and PHA. Both are a polymer that is derived from agricultural byproducts. More information
We are currently developing a line of products that are produced from 100% recycled plastics. We are aiming to release them in Summer of 2021.
You don’t necessarily need to use all of the parts for the system to provide benefits.
You can use just the hexagons without bases and mount the trellis on various surfaces. We have seen many customers mount their trellis directly to a wall to grow their plants around features in their homes.
Our products can be recycled in specific cases.
The packaging that your Super Trellis comes in can be composted. It must be composted in a setting where temperatures are maintained above 40 degrees Celsius. If your town or city has a commercial composting facility, they can take the packaging for composting. We have had users successfully compost their packaging at home, but it is considered an advanced process by them.
The actual components of Super Trellis can be composted and recycled, again in specific situations. The parts are considered to be “other” plastics by recyclers, sometimes referred to as #7 plastics. Check in with your recycler if they can take PLA or PHA plastics at their facility before sending them the parts.
Super Trellis can be used outdoors in some cases. Generally it is recommended to use Super Trellis in areas that are mostly shaded. Darker colors are susceptible to warping in hot environments with direct sunlight. The darker pigments in the colors absorb more light and reach temperatures much greater than the ambient temperature of the air.
When using a Super Trellis in an outdoor setting, we recommend building your trellis with our Corner kit in the “totem” arrangement. By creating a four sided structure, the chances of warping are greatly reduced.
If you are concerned that your environment may be too warm for Super Trellis, consider purchasing light colored products (white, grey, blush, lemon, etc). These items can sustain higher ambient temperatures up to 90 degrees Fahrenheit and direct sun for extended periods of time. At least partial shade is always recommended.
We are developing a line of products that will be at least 50% more durable in hot environments. These are the same products that will be made from recycled plastics and should be released in Summer of 2021. They will be compatible with all of our current products, so there’s no need to worry about having to build a completely new trellis!
