You can get lengths of steel rod of the proper diameter and cut and form your own.

What web browser are you using? I found this right away.

And like Subrosa said, these are easy to make. I use galvanized wire available at any good hardware or farm supply store. Cut to a suitable length, straighten it and form it around a clay pot. Use a pliers to form the other bends or bend around a woode dowel. Easy, but wear safety glasses.

Also, try doing a search for Roberts Flower Supply. They're located in Ohio. They handle wire pot hangers but are the variety that clip onto the side of the pot.

As near as I can tell the galvanized wire I've been using for the hoop style holders is 12AWG. These are suitable for 4" or smaller clay pots, maybe 6" if plastic. If using larger clay pots the side clips are a better choice. They grip under the lip of the pot.

Here is another home-made design I found that would probably hold a larger clay pot.

Actually, that is not a pot hanger at all! It is a plant support for plants like cattleyas that youíre using upside-down!

The idea is that the crimped end grips the edge of the pot, and the ring surrounds the growths, holding them upright.

ah, so they are all metal ring stakes?

i was wondering about that based on the lack of finding them as hangers

i have had decent luck with bending the 12ga wire s that is the path i am taking for now
