At a 165 pound carrying capacity, our new iron plant caddies (we got the 2 pack, less $ each 😊) are surprisingly sturdy, durable, and extremely easy to maneuver (with the 4 wheels unlocked via a simple lever).
With wheels locked, the stand with a heavy plant can be skidded but enough umph, lol! But otherwise there’s no doubt our plants are staying put where we park them!
I won’t try to hide, this took me a bit to put two of these together. All the tools I needed were included, but the screws were a bit tiny for my hands. After the first few wheels (I had 8 for two caddies) though, it got a little easier.
Compensation for my time is more than paid for by the fact of how sturdy the dollies are, and how balanced, both in movement and stationary. Some of the plant caddies we’d looked at only required one screw per wheel, these use four!
And, very importantly – each wheel has an easy to use brake lever. Locks and unlocks securely and easily.
Though initially I was thinking I’d showcase this purchase of ours later spring of 2021, I remembered during our 1st cold snap here in Central Texas that this was the main reason we got them, lol! 😊
As can be seen below, we even have a large plastic water drain catcher under the Dwarf Allamanda on the right. It sits easily on the caddy, something I’d been worried about 😏
The plant on the dolly above is in a resin planter and, though heavy, not terribly so.
The plant below, our Majestic palm, is in an earthenware pot and is very heavy. That’s what I had Sheila video me getting inside in the video further up in the post.
Neither plant was a problem moving, and neither was a problem getting over the transom in the doorway from the balcony to the inside.
The caddies proved very stable and secure! 😊 I’m glad we got the two pack, saving a bit vs making two separate purchases, though a one pack is available if that’s all you’ll need.
Everything arrived quickly and well boxed!
There’s lots more plant caddies to choose from, here again is my generic Amazon site search for “plant caddies with wheels” — https://amzn.to/383SDRp 😊
But what‘s gotta be a certain sign I got the right product for the job, is this —
a very happy Sheila ❤️

- September 22, 2021 – Walking in Dappled Light Study 1, #Watercolor on Paper; 1st Paint Lay-in with Masking FluidAt 9×12 on 140lb x watercolor paper, I was able to use my brushes fairly effectively where I wanted them, and applied some Turner masking fluid (with a thin palette knife) “fairly” easy. And yes, some foot proportions are off a bit, lol, and her back blouse almost looks like it’s the front, but all in not too bad toward my primary priority – quickly achieve some degree of dappling look. Once the masking fluid comes off though, it could be very different….
- September 21, 2021 – Initial Review of “Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art” by James NestorI’d been doing a day to day posting of a continuing study-sketch project with figures in a watercolor landscape and ran into a time roadblock – grandchild, groceries, fitness (walking, yoga, Essentrics), picking up line art to practice-paint at my printer, etc 😊 and wasn’t able to wiggle any more time to work on that project and write about it, so… I took a deep breath and picked up a book (virtually, via my Kindle Reader, lol!) The editorial reviews often mentioned this read like a novel & my intro and beginning pages already confirm that.
- September 20, 2021 – Dappled Light, “Figures in a Landscape Study” Still Not Done, But, Already a Learning Tool For Me!“Learning Tool for Me” is part of my blog title today simply ’cause I’ve looking at this post as specifically geared to get me where I wanna go – keeping in mind my destination is a generalized abstraction of image / feeling / and intuitive aspiration (hopefully including figurative work) & it’s reached a point of development over my previous renditions that I now need to put my resolve into concrete, hopefully creative, useful thoughts for my future directions. Lot of contradictions. Like life. Like me 😊 Here goes (for now) —
- September 19, 2021 – Dappled Light, “Figures in a Landscape Study” ContinuedJust a quick post updating yesterday’s release showing what I’ve changed/added on to a watercolor on paper I’d 1st posted about on Sept 7th…A bigger factor in today’s image update is the addition of more “white”.
- September 18, 2021 – Dapple Light, My Creative Conundrum and CaldronMy regular readers know I’ve been more and more attracted to the idea of being able to paint dappled light, consciously, and hopefully, eventually more spontaneously. I titled my post to include both “conundrum” – which I kept misspelling til I looked it up 😊 – and “caldron” – which I keep feeling my creative heart and mind are swimming in (over their heads) lol!
- September 17, 2021 – New Most Viewed Image For the Week @FineArtAmerica, “Fantasy Walk” : Watercolor on Canvas on Light Molding Paste, #ContemporaryImpressionismSome times, some days, the little things, like the big things, if they are good and hopeful, then they are helpful.
- September 16, 2021 – Reblog(s) : Graham McQuade, Benchmarks 1 & 2 (Acrylic Painting) #figureartThis necessarily (on my part) a short post due to some time constraints, although I should add, Graham’s posts will be a quick read. They’re short, tight with information. What will take a little time, if you notice the time 😊 is….
Thanks again, everyone! 😊
