One of our largest modular moss poles, the open face measures 12.5 (5") cm wide and each section is 30 cm (12") tall. This pole can be extended as your plant grows, simply add another 30 cm section every time you run out of space!

The smallest kit is a single section, with easy to follow assembly instructions. You can also choose between a 60, 90, and 120 cm kit, which can be built all at once, or added onto in steps. It's easy!

Additional sections can be attached without the use of any tools, with snap fit joints. In the same fashion, the poles may be disassembled for cleaning and reuse if your plant doesn't take to its home. The transparent curved back will allow you to supervise root growth, while retaining moisture for longer.

The front and joints are made of PLA, and the backing is PETG. PLA is a 100% bio-sourced plastic: it’s made of renewable resources such as corn or sugar cane. PLA is also biodegradable and it can be composted. PETG is a 100% reusable material.

Our recommendation is that you use an additional brace if your plant is very heavy, or if you extend your moss pole past 120 cm (4 units). A length of bamboo or similar would serve.

This pole is designed to be fastened directly to the plant pot via zip ties for best stability, but it can also be pushed into the soil if you are not ready to disturb the roots. Keep growing your pole with your plant by purchasing extension kits.

Each section holds about 1.5 litres of hydrated moss.

Quick Questions

Which size kit do I need for my plant?

Measure the length of the plant you intend to pot up with our moss pole, from the top of the soil to the very tip of its growth. Once you've selected the style of moss pole you want, you should select a length option that covers the measured length, plus 2 additional sections. This will save you having to purchase additional extensions immediately, as you may be surprised how quickly your plant starts to grow once it is given that extra boost.

You may of course always buy additional extensions which can be screwed or snapped on easily, so the main consideration is that you have enough to provide for the near future.

Do I need an L, XL, XXL, D-shaped pole, or a planter?

L-Line Moss Pole:

Thin stemmed climbers such as Syngoniums, Hoyas, and Epipremnums are best suited for this line, as the narrower 4 cm diameter will not support large masses of roots, or heavy leaves. The L-Line is a good option to replace bamboo sticks and the like as you can fill its smaller mesh with bark or coco chips as a substrate. This product is also ideal for nursery setups, when you want to train your plant to climb from the very start.

XL-Line Moss Pole:

The workhorse of our product line, you can have practically any plant make its home in this rigid, large 6 cm diameter moss pole. Our customers have planted Monsteras, Philodendrons, Syngoniums, Epipremnums, and many more varieties on this sturdy trellis. When you need your moss pole to extend longer than a person is tall, this is the line to choose. It also carries the advantage of being compatible with our line of moss pole integrated planters, so you are easily able to transfer your rooted stem to a centred and supported planter.

XXL-Line Moss Pole:

A scaled up version of the XL-Line, this 8 cm diameter moss pole boasts the greatest rigidity and vastly increased moss volume. Reserved for those cases where you plan to grow your moss pole well past 1 meter in height, or to contain those thick aerial roots put out by large form Monstera Deliciosa, this line features the same easy screw-on extension design that makes maintaining our moss poles effortless.

D-Shaped Moss Poles:

With its large volume of moss, and single open face, this moss pole is perfect for large plants with showy leaves. The Monstera Dubia, Rhaphidophora Tetrasperma, Monstera Deliciosa (and its beautiful variegations), and many others will thrive in the rich environment provided. As a large portion of the pole is fully enclosed, the moss dehydrates at a much slower rate than the cylinder models, making this the favourite option for lower maintenance plant parents. This line is also a favourite for propagators, as the flat mesh can be easily clipped open to release rooted cuttings, while still preserving its function.

What can I fill my moss pole with, and which soil do I use?

You can fill your moss pole with cleaned and hydrated sphagnum moss (our fave), moss sheet, or hemp fibre.

To fill your pot or planter, you can use your favourite soil mix, one best suited to the plant you are potting. We have developed our own mixture of regular potting soil, mixed with chunkifying supplements such as perlite, bark, pumice, and clay balls (Leca). The important factor to consider is the additional moisture that will be dripping into your plant with the frequent watering of the pole. A well draining soil mix, and a pot that allows the excess water to be removed, are essential.

How does a moss pole help my plant?

Moss poles mimic the plant's natural environment!

A lot of climbing plants like Monsteras and Philodendrons thrive in humid jungle environments where they climb up wet, mossy trees. Using a moss pole helps the plants thrive and grown in an environment that comes naturally to them.

Moss retains moisture for a good length of time, giving your plants a moist and humid surface onto which they can easily project aerial roots. Essentially the moss pole gives them something to climb up, and at the same time, provides essential moisture and nutrients via the moss.

Moss poles can make your plants grow bigger, faster!

A trailing plant can be turned around, attached to a moss pole, and as it climbs, it suddenly matures and develops. This is because some plants thrive more when they are given the opportunity to climb. Hanging can drag down the plant's leaves and roots, causing it to put out smaller leaves.

A moss pole will support your plant as it grows.

Moss poles encourage root and leaf growth!

A moss pole will help your plant thrive and put out bigger, better leaves.

Moss poles encourage aerial roots to form. By adding lots of new root points to the plant, the moss pole will encourage the plant to mature and develop, and push out bigger and better leaves. A moss pole, when watered and correctly used, is a great way to get your plants to grow in a way that does not involve artificial fertilisers.

The Challenge

So I was a tester for a moss pole a custom order.. however even though I know the team did a strength test on this new colour it looked incredible but it wasn’t meant to be. Hopefully they can get that colour and perfect it.. I reported back to the team what had happened and they sent me a new replacement at not extra cost to me at all! I didn’t even need to return. I asked for white originally but after seeing different pictures of the Aqua I had to get it in that colour. the colour of the Aqua is sooo lovely it’s my favourite colour it’s more green that blue almost like a teal colour and the new moss Pole Bertha is robust and looks so good! I would totally recommend this colour and the Barbara d-shaped Moss Pole. When I put it together this time I learnt that it’s better to fill the moss up section by section and the self watering drip is really awesome too !! Totally recommend buying something if not this pole from Mythos as they are such a lovely helpful bunch of creative people. Can’t wait to watch my Dubia climb up the moss pole !

Love this moss pole

I got this moss pole to size up my Monstera Esquelto (which has worked fantastically). It was my first proper moss pole and I have very limited space, so I wanted something more aesthetic than chicken wire moss poles and something easy to assemble. I also wanted a plastic backed moss pole so it wouldn't dry out as easily (and bonus, you get to see the explosion of roots in the back).

Admittedly the first section I assembled was a bit of a nightmare but M3D have updated their guidance and put together an assembly video which is very helpful (the knack to getting the plastic sheet in easily is to first take off the two C shaped clips on both ends and then put this back on when you've installed the plastic). The latest section took me no more than a minute or two to assemble as a comparison.

It's really easy to extend, and still stable at 3 sections (I probably wouldn't chance another one without wall support). Love this product!

Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review, and for the pics of your gorgeous Esqueleto! We are also grateful for your feedback on the topic of instructions, as we still have much to learn in order to make things as easy as possible for everyone <3

Finally got there, and it is magnificent!

I ordered 6 D-shaped Modular Moss Pole sections as my Monstera Dubia was already on a tall wooden baton, and it just needed re-potting. I viewed the tutorial video re: construction many times and eventually got there. There had been enough procrastination but, if I can build this, then anyone can. I did have a slight failure of one part, which meant totally unbuilding it, but M3D were very helpful, understanding and sent me a replacement part. I used 5 bags of moss in total, and as you can see, there is room for the plant to grow, and more moss to be added. I am so happy with the result, and wonder just why I stalled in building it in the first place. Thank you to everyone.

Thank you so much for your review! And kudos to you for putting together this Megastructure, that in itself is a whole achievement <3 Your Dubia will be shooting up the tower in no time :D

Functional and Good Looking

Everything I didn't know I needed. Looks great, was so easy to put together and I love the design and colour options. Made a chop and mount easy but fun for a relative novice like me. My 5 year old was very excited the next morning because she thought I had got a bee colony! Lovely product and great service

Estos tutores de musgo son fantásticos, mis plantas están encantadas con ellos y yo también. La calidad es muy buena, difícil de creer que son una impresión 3D, y el diseño muy bonito. El tutor con forma de D es muy amplio, así que tiene mucho espacio para que crezcan las raíces; además, al estar cubierto por detrás, el musgo no se seca tan rápido. Recomiendo este producto y volveré a comprarlo en el futuro.
