3D Printed Moss Poles
Soil.Ninja are proud to announce our partnership with 3D printing master Mr. Jig and bring your our first set of exclusive products.
The Modular Moss Pole is 3D printed and includes several modular components to allow for customisation. These moss poles are made from PLA (Polylactic acid) which is primarily derived from corn starch.
We now offer the 3D Printed Moss Poles in 2 kit sizes, the Original and the Starter.
The Original kit includes poles, cap, base, brace and soil spike.
• Large Pole Sizes: 3x 190mm poles (50mm diameter)
• Small Pole Sizes: 3x poles, 75mm, 125mm and 175mm (25mm diameter)
The Starter kit includes a pole, spike and cap, great as an intro to the 3D Printed Moss Poles with room to grow using our Extension Kits
• Large Starter Kit: 1x 190mm pole (50mm diameter)
• Small Starter Kit: 1x 175mm pole (25mm diameter)
See diagram images for more information.
Cap - This screws on the top most pole to cover the exposed thread (for aesthetics)
Base - Screws into the bottom most segment to stop moss or over substrate from falling out of the bottom
Brace - This is the first mounting piece and has arms that can be expanded to fit your pot. Place the brace within an empty pot and expand the arms against the inside face and screw tight. This makes the pole very stable. As it has 3 arms the brace does not need to sit centrally and can be placed asymmetrically. Fill around the pole and brace with your preferred soil/substrate and add your plant. Attach the poles as required.
Soil Spike - If you are not ready to repot and therefore the brace can't be used, the soil spike can be screwed to the bottom of the pole and stuck into the soil. CAUTION - the point of the spike is sharp, keep away from eyes, sensitive areas and children.
For optimum height and pole stability the ideal setup would be to use the brace buried in a pot. One pole screwed below the brace with the base filled with loose stone, this will be the counter weight but will allow drainage, the rest of the poles and any extra poles are screwed above and filled with moss or your preferred substrate. The cap is screwed on the end until ready to expand.
- The soil spike is sharp, be very careful
- Some loose lines can be seen around some of the screw threads, pull these off with fingers or tweezers gently.
- When screwing parts together the first time screwing together could be a little stiff, tease it gently unscrewing a little before going again.
- When screwing poles together, hold the parts close to the ends which are being attached together, this will avoid strain on the helix which could cause the pole to snap.

HOW DO I KNOW I'M PICKING THE RIGHT SOIL?
Well, of course if your plant is an Alocasia, the Alocasia mix is probably the best bet! However, if your plant isn't the namesake of any of our mixes, then it’s all about which of the mixes matches that plant’s needs, such as moisture retention. For instance, our Calathea and Maranta mix is also great for begonias as they both enjoy their soils staying lightly moist. Or conversely, our Cacti and Succulent mix is great for sansevieria. Which enjoy a decent dry out between waterings, so a quick-drying cacti mix is probably the best shout! If you’re stuck on what to pick of course contact us via the contact form, Instagram or Facebook and we will happily help you out.Take a look at our very useful House Plant Index Here
