A big plant needs a lot of space while a small one does not need so much space.If you have some free time you may also get your own practical DIY Concrete Planters.

Here it is the list of the materials you need: 5 tupperware containers, 1 tub Sakrete Fast Setting Cement Patcher, as well as a few utensils and solos cups – specifically an old knife for mixing and a measuring cup that had been used for other non-food things and some succulents.

The directions on the cement tub instructed mixing 5 parts cement with 1 part water – so you mix one cup of the powder with just under a quarter cup warm water and then you start stirring. Stirring then led to dumping the concrete mix into your clean mold. With a little bit of pounding to remove air bubbles the surface will begin to spread out nice and neat.

On the other hand, here is another mix that includes more water – about a 4 to 1 ratio. It is instantly smoother and fewer air bubbles are released when tapped. For the center, where the little succulents will live out their adorable lives, you can use a simple solo cup as a mold.Then you will be able to plant the succulents which are so little and easily breakable so that you need to be very careful to your planting.{found on theselflife}
