Plastic clips are used to tie the plant to the stake. In order for this to function properly, great care must be taken to ensure that the plastic clip is attached to the stake correctly.
Pros: plastic clips are strong and easy to use. They tie the stake and the plant together without damaging the stem.
Cons: attaching the plastic clip is a lengthy process, it is not a degradable material in plant compost and results in high recycling, transport and storage costs.
