About This Course
What should we do if our plant pot is broken?
We will put the plant pot in another pot. To make this work well, we have to find the point of the pot that is still intact and we will strengthen it in our composition. In our planting pot we will put succulent plants. These plants need little water and a small planting medium is enough for them. In the fall or even in the summer when we are not able to water them properly, this composition looks good on a terrace table as well.
So we incorporate our broken pot, trying to leave the intact surface above. We can either put perlite or clay granules, gravel or even pebbles on the bottom.
We need to layer it, so that the excess water can drain away. We do this thickly. And then we put a little planting medium in it. This way our plant pot is relatively stable in the other pot.
There is nothing else to do but plant vegetation here and there. For example, we can now use them as if we wanted to pour the plant out of that pot. And put the soil underneath, then put the other plants around it.
We don’t want to force the plant out of the pot, so just pull it out loosely. Break up the root system a little bit so that it can grow better. If we have a seedling or cutting that has a littered bottom, we have to remove it, as this can promote rotting later on. Continue until you feel that you have finished your composition.
These plants need very little water. You can improve the look a little by sprinkling granules or moss around them.
