How to make a micro pot garden
Materials you’ll need
1. 7-1/2”clay pot
2. 6-1/2” clay pot
3. potting soil
4. belt sander or sand paper
5. small piece from a soft plastic pot or plastic cup
6. rotozip tool with 1/8″ masonry bit
7. jigsaw with metal cutting blade
8. small piece of moss
9. a small flowering plant – I use a baby Alyssum plant and a variety of succulent plants
Trace template onto the pot, then use rotozip tool to cut out the marked section
Place the cut out section into the center of the pot, and use a rock to prop it up and hold in place. Leaving some space on the right side, put a piece of plastic on the inside and fill it with potting soil
Start marking the small pot (it doesn’t have to be very precise, just cut out 2 pieces to hold the soil). Cut it with a jigsaw with metal-cutting blade (this type of blade cuts straight very fast but can be difficult with curves) A rotozip tool with masonry bit also works but cuts much more slowly. Smooth edges with a sander or sandpaper.
Start planting the top level with your choice of succulents and a baby alyssum plant. Align the 2 cut pieces in front, put a piece of moss or plastic in between in order to hold the soil in.
Fill the front with potting soil and finish it with your desired succulent plants. Voila! You have a cool looking micro pot garden
