Glue pot to saucer. I used a penny to keep it from being flush and preventing drainage.
Then glue pot to wall. I used Roberts 7200 mastic in tube.
Use chair or 2x2 or whatever to hold to wall. If the pot keeps slipping make tape loop between pot and weight.

That is a nice idea Mark however, I have learned not to put any tray underneath my succulents outdoors, any water pooling underneath will not hasten drainage. Is that side of the house with a protected top, if it is then that could indeed work! Thumbs up

The tray is only to hold the pot away from the wall so i could glue it more upright.
Thats a good point though, I guess i will hit the saucer with a drill before i plant it.

I use this hanger for my pots with a lip, mostly for my orchids on a wooden pole. It can also be affixed on masonry & holds really well. Smiling

This is called hang-a-pot.

Initially got my set during a plant and garden showcase demo booth. They also have an online site: http://www.hangapot.com

For the ultra handy, I've also seen these made from a piece of lumber - very tricky!
