The angle of the folds should be 90 degrees.
Insert tabs into the corresponding holes. The end of the tab should be in the inside of the pole.
Handy tip: Insert the top, middle, and bottom tabs first.
Ensure you have a stable base — it makes all the difference.
Handy tip: Mix something heavy into your medium to weigh down the base. Add 3 parts sand, pumice, or rocks to 1 part medium and fill the pot 3/4 of the way up to improve stability.
Fill the pole with your favorite medium. We like to use a chunky Aroid mix.
Position the growth point at the base of the pole.
