Your plants will start growing upwards and use sticks as support. You can use some ropes as well, if you want to have that rustic look. Plants will basically use anything to grow higher.
Whatever you decide to make, or do, adding plants to your home is always a great idea. All you need to do is pick a sunny place, pick which plants you want to plant and give them lots of your love and water.
