I grow succulents and am always looking for ways to display them. I came across this video and it certainly inspired me! Now I know what to do with all my broken and cracked pots! LOL!

I agree! And with the addition of just 1 tiny decoration, it can be a mini garden. If you do an image search for broken pot gardens, you'll see a ton of them done with 'steps,' gnomes, tiny houses, etc...

Thanks, Tiffany! I really love something unusual like the use of broken pot pieces! Wonderful idea! I will see if I can find more of the ones you mentioned. Thumbs up

I'm too frugal to purposely break a pot, but the next time it happens, I'm trying one! If you do one, please share it!

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these ideas for broken pots created into miniature gardens! I especially love the steps up to the top of the pots! Amazing!

Scrolling through this morning to see if I'd missed anything, and I had. Love the pics @ the last link! TY for sharing it. Have you made any progress making one of your own?

I just made a hypertufa container and I need to let the rain wash the lime out of it. Or maybe I can speed that process up and just use vinegar?

No broken clay pots here, though. But I will never throw a broken clay pot away again. I will definitely consider using it as a succulent container.
