Concrete planters

Concrete planters are an easy and cost-effective way to showcase air plants. If desired, you can quickly craft one in whatever shape or size suits your needs, adding color with concrete pigments. Simply mix up some concrete and pour it into a greased mold before removing its surface once set.

If you use it to cultivate succulents, seal your planter before beginning, as succulents require alkaline soil, and concrete leaches lime into its soil – this can harm their development. To reduce lime levels in your soil and help your succulents, soak your planter in water for several days before using it.

Use this modern and stylish planter to hold Tillandsia air plants or other small plants. The marbled design gives it a distinctive look that fits well into any decor scheme.

Ameraucana eggshell planters

Ameraucana chickens make an ideal addition to any garden, providing natural pest control and fertilization benefits.

For the safety of both you and the birds, a few essential tips must be observed to protect them against harm from potential threats.

American egg production can be affected by various factors, including age, nutrition, and lighting.

DIY eggshell planters are an easy and cost-effective way to reuse old eggshells while creating an adorable garden for air plants. To begin making them, dry and grind eggshells into powder. Next, use a blunt tool to dent each bottom shell so they won’t roll around during use and will hold in more moisture than typical planters.

Epoxy resin planters

epoxy resin can make creating beautiful displays for air plants in baskets or bowls easy. As an adaptable material, it can be easily shaped to suit any design and style desired. At the same time, its lightweight nature means it can easily be moved around to accommodate new landscaping plans and keep plants happy.

Genuine resin planters boast incredible stain resistance. While other materials, such as concrete, can become discolored by bird droppings, watermarks, or vandal graffiti, the resin can easily be scrubbed clean using commercial cleaners available at your local hardware store – an invaluable benefit if your planters will be displayed publicly.

Resin planters are resistant to moisture damage, which often plagues outdoor farmers. Moisture degrades materials like metal and terra cotta but doesn’t affect resin at all, thus extending their lifespan without the need to replace them anytime soon.

Ceramic planters

Ceramic planters add elegance and sophistication to any space while providing airflow and water absorption benefits. Ceramics’ porous nature allows air to reach the soil of a plant’s roots to drive growth and help prevent overwatering, which can cause root rot. Many glazed ceramic planters come equipped with removable dishes at their bases that drain off excess liquid.

Planters made of clay or stone may be heavy yet beautiful and sturdy. Ceramic planters that combine fiberglass and clay materials create lightweight versions for those looking to keep their plants looking natural but with limited space. This type of ceramic pot makes an excellent option.
