I am trying to think of fun and unique things to plant succulents in- came across this :)
Maybe planting some in bigger shells :)
Plant them in little jars which can be hung at different heights
Glass bowls/candy dishes/fish bowls (easy to find and goodwill/etc)
I don't like giant visible macrame planters- I like the hanging part to be more subtle- like floating plants.
Here is a gorgeous plant mister for watering your delicate littler terrariums and air plants (for $12!)
I am sure what my next step is before I go shopping for all these things though- I have a terrarium to plant in, and transplanting to do (though no spade...)
Next I need to go through all of my art stuff and see if I want to construct planters and garden deco with them! I dunno if moisture/sun would ruin them (or if in the time it took to do so I would care) but I have wine and cigar boxes I could line, plant in, and hang!!
(bring it on)
In fact if I am careful enough, I could staple wire mesh and grow my vertical succulent gardens in these. I wonder f I should try to line them with black plastic or varnish them/treat them with something?
Found this tip: "For outdoor use, you're pretty much good to go with a raw box with holes drilled in the bottom. If the case will be used indoors, it should be sealed with caulk to prevent leaking. A non-toxic sealer can be applied to the inside of the box to prevent the wood from falling apart."
Looks like you line the inside with heavy plastic (must account for drainage or put a rock layer at the bottom like a green roof) and coat the outside with a clear sealant to help it last longer. Some people used liquid rubber or fancy boat varnish- I think these are such low quality boxes in the first place, for my first few tries I can go with the cheap stuff :) I saw a recommendation for adding some little L brackets to the corners for added support- s0unds like a good plan!. This is a good instructable-like-thing I will likely follow. I even have some crappy heavy duty plastic that is falling apart in places and would love to be recycled into planter liners :) http://www.ehow.com/how_2194355_prepare-wooden-planter.html
I have other random things I can plant things in to :) I will hunt around my stuff and take some photos :)
