I thought zip ties were a good idea to hold up the plant containers on the balcony rails. Now I know it’s not.
They are good but only for a few months. Probably 4-6 months by my estimate.
Yesterday one of my plant container came crashing down. On my side ok, not over the railings outside as that would be bad.
Anyway I was lucky it wasn’t a mess and the soil didn’t spill over etc.
My solution is to use this “fish string” you can buy from the aquarium shop. Pretty cheap at RM 1 per roll.
Not very good at knots but I got them holding the container and tied it to the rails.
An advantage is the string is pretty invisible. I can’t even get a clear picture of it.
A close look and it’s visible.
This pot is “half-half” using the fish string method and the zip tie.
My other containers all still use zip ties but I will be slowly replacing them.
