Indoor wall nails for climbing indoor plants

Anyone else interested in using the inside wall for climbing plants? I noticed some easy to locate indoor wall hooks that look like they may work just fine. I am a bit worried about putting them inside. Do they really last that long? How about these hooks? http://amzn.to/2jbGInC

Have you thought about doing this with some kind of wood putty? Just coat a small ball of your wood putty on the end of the hook and put the hook in the opening in the wall and you have a way to hang things. A hammer could do the same thing if you have a hammer. My father in law had that big old attic and had some large birdcages in it that he loved to look at while sitting in his easy chair in the living room. He kept a big long nail near him and one day, he just started hammering at the wall trying to pry the birdcages off the wall. He finally figured out that the long nail was the long nail he used to pry them off the wall and he loved having something to do and to think about so he stayed busy for the rest of the day and it didn't seem to hurt him.

Of course, you could use PVC pipe, too. But PVC is too brittle and will break over time if used for this. But using a smaller diameter, threaded pvc pipe would probably work just fine. That's what I used for a previous hack: here is a link: https://www.instructables.com/id/PVC-Nest-outdoor-in-an-indoor-space/. I didn't have any success with that particular method, but I could not pull the pipe out again once it was in place. If it did work for you, great.

I used PVC pipe and it worked really well. You don't need the specific kind of hook, the pipe is heavy enough. You can find large tubes and you can even get an unfinished fixture like a light fixture with all the washers and nuts and you can find very large pipes for outdoor uses. You can also get threaded pipes that are quite cheap and all you need to drill is a 1/2" drill bit to start the thread.

A sturdy, heavy hook, is the way to go. And you could even use a multi-tool, like a spudger (which may not be strong enough for this, but might be able to help with some of the prying to get the hook in place and holding it in place).

if you find a more lightweight material, like a thin rubber hose and use it, it's a bit less sturdy and you might get away with a slightly thinner screw, but they should still be sufficiently heavy. I find 1.25" screws generally seem to be fine, so you don't have to go much more than 1/2".

While I agree with the idea, it still seems like it would be very hard to do. I would think the internal tension on the pipe would be enough to push it out of the wall if you were trying to pull it out. You would just be pulling it out the same way it went in. I also think you would have a hard time getting it to go in far enough. If you could somehow make a hook that was open at the bottom and use the area around the bottom hole as a sleeve to fit the wall, you could probably fit it in farther. The way it is now is basically just a hole in the wall with a stick in it.

Good point, I guess you could use several hooks like that and then try to find a way to get it in and out.

Yeah. I'd want to get it in as far as possible. A big problem would be when you remove the hook from the wall. A series of smaller hooks would seem to work better than one long one, so you don't have the chance to destroy it. Then the question is how to remove it.

But anyway, I didn't even suggest a solution for that. At least I hope I didn't.

Thanks for the reply, I have been thinking about putting small hooks into all the openings in the wall to see if I can get a plant to grow in there, thanks again.

I found several versions of the hook on amazon.
