How do you make a trellis in the pot for a house plant that vines?

    depends on the pot and the vine you have. Can you elaborate on the specifics?

      The pot is about 7-8 inches across. The plant has a waxy kind of leaf and sends out long shoots that look for something they can climb on. I keep winding them around the pot but that's getting full. Need some kind of a trellis for the shoots to go up on. Any ideas?

    You would have to have legs that would go to the bottom of the pot with the trellis starting at or some where above the soil level. We use cup hooks or command hooks to run our viney plants up and across the bedroom wall for our hanging plants. The vines are about fifteen feet long and we run them across two of the walls.

    It would depend on the plant you want to train up a trellis. A tomato cage cut down in height would work or it could be a one-dimensional trellis and you could bamboo or twigs stuck firmly in the pot soil.

    You could use a small tomato cage. They make some that are bright colors now. This is a good time to pick them up on sale. Or get one of the galvanized ones and wind twine or yarn around it to dress it up a bit. You can also get the small bamboo sticks from garden center and either bind together to form a small trellis or tripod.

    I took a coathanger apart, shaped it into a U and pushed it into the pot
