The seller told us it came from Mexico, and was a nice old pot. We loved it immediately (plus it was only marked $3, but who knows what we paid for it because we bought a lot at this sale and she offered an insane low lot price) but it is big and heavy. Also, I am not so into strawberry plants. So I decided to plant it with succulents! Succulents don't need a ton of soil, so I could make the core of this heavy pot hollow by using leftover plastic pots.
I placed the plastic pots into the strawberry pot, and then started filling in my cactus and succulent soil.
There was one broken slot in the pot, and I found that it was hard to continue filling the pot with that big gaping hole. So I took a shard of another broken pot (one my cousin's painted for me for my wedding shower, so sad this broke!) and placed it in the void. Problem solved!
I used this whole bag of succulent soil. I was going to plant the top plastic pot with more succulents, and then I realized that one of my agave plants would fit perfectly. Once the soil was in and the agave pot situated, it was time to start placing my succulent cuttings.
I love succulents because they are so easy. Really. Just put them in the soil, give some water now and then and let them go. On some of the smaller or more awkward shaped succulents I secured them into the soil with a u shaped pin.
All done and looking good!
