Arrange indoor plants in identical or coordinating pots that complement the room's interior. Arrange taller plants on the bottom tier and cascading or spiky plants on the top tier.

Adding decorative figures to a tiered plant stand makes the plant arrangement look more appealing.

An indoor plant stand requires frequent cleaning to keep insects from breeding in it. Place a small tray that is easy to clean beneath each pot to collect excess water, and empty it as it collects. Place a few colorful pebbles on each pot to keep the soil moist and fresh. Trim dead leaves, and remove wilted flowers periodically to improve plant growth. As with all indoor plants, place the pots in sunlight for at least 20 minutes each week to keep them healthy.
