If you have house plants with thin vines that do not stand up with a stick, I have used a wooden 5 fingered back scratcher to hold these vines up. Put the fingers upward and the vines slide nicely between fingers. This works great and does not hurt your vines of the plant.

This is a strange time of year for my amaryllis to be blooming. I've had it in the basement, noticed it was growing and brought it upstairs. The leaves and stalk were starting to bend over so I took some of the pussy willow branches that I had brought in from my tree and propped the Amarylis bulbs up. As you can see in the picture they fill in the pot nicely, looking very natural, and they do the job.

I use pretty plastic chopsticks from the nearby Asian market as stakes for my houseplants. They don't warp or rot, and the chopsticks come in all sorts of pretty colors and designs for around $2.

I got some slightly wilted potted mums after Easter. There was a green string/light thread left over from wherever they had been bought. I retied the thread, which helped hold up the flowers, which revived when I watered them! (Going to remember using green thread that way in the future.)
