This is a nice decorative planter that is easy to put together, and very low maintenance. First chose a nice glazed bowl, one that works best for your situation. Next is the fun part, choosing the plants. The plants we chose are, a 6" Zamia furfuracea, several different succulents, and sedum ground cover. We also picked out a nice piece of driftwood for accent.
First fill the container with a well draining soil mix. Next position the focal point plant (Zamia). It is positioned off-center to the back of the planter. It is also positioned higher than level, on a mound of soil. Than place the succulents and driftwood in a pleasing arrangement. The sedum groundcover is planted in two areas where it will eventually hang over the edge of the pot. The final touch is a top dressing of gravel to keep the soil in place and finish off the planter with a nice clean look. This planter will grow in full sun to part shade. Depending on your conditions you may water once or twice a week. Fertilize every two weeks with a water soluble plant food.
We will be posting a video soon on the making of this planter, so check back!
