Succulent Planters

Recycled planters for Succulents

succulents in recycled plumbing parts
Upcycled Water Spigots
perhaps you call them
sillcocks but these were being
disposed. I added to iron
plant hangers then used a paper towel
with a little grey and white paint
that was in the garage and lumpy,
to match up and age the "Pot"

Soil is 2/3 gravel  1/3 compost (free)
with a few cuttings of succulents.
Put a sprinkle of cinnamon on the callused
cutting which encourages roots
and keeps out rot.

Water once a week

Total cost $3.00 for the plant hangers

They make nice gifts
Old parts become new art. Below are a number of photographs of all types of pots, some crazy but they work. I'm a believer in free crockery is fun.
Thanks for reading
