I have bamboo sticks which I want to use for my climbing aroids.
The moss - absorbs more water than peat and is a good medium for aerial roots. It is, however, hard to find in my area, so I must find something else.
Alternatives - What about rockwool, sawdust, sponge, old cloth? Sawdust is harder to tie to a pole without a net, so this is a last resort solution. Also, constantly looking for old sockings and pantyhose to contain the sawdust is not practical and may appear kinky to others. I prefer my poles be built out of standard materials.
