Pipe cleaners make wonderful soft flexible ties for attaching plants to stakes and cut easily to size with just regular scissors. They come in a variety of colors so you could match them to the plant if you wanted. I purchased mine at a dollar store so it is very cost effective.

|Great tip and something I never thought of. I bet you could use them to gently shape and redirect small branches as well. This is one I will use for sure, now gotta find a dollar store.|

|Oh my, I haven't seen or even thought of pipe cleaners in so long! What a good idea! I'll have to keep an eye out for them now.|
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.
