I know there are a bunch of them out there! Snap & share a pic when you can!

This was put together in November. I like the way it's aging! A wire basket lined with landscape fabric on the bottom and window screen on the sides (which is easier to put holes in, for me.)

What a great idea! Thank you for sharing. Gives me some ideas.... I have been wanting to plant some water plants in orchid baskets but I couldn't think of a way to keep the gravel/aquatic soil in the basket.

Thank You!

Here are a couple pots I put together yesterday.

Strawberry pot with various succulents. I've been wanting one of these for a long time & DH showed up with the empty pot! The top has Kalanchoe longiflora & 'Fang,' a Jade, Graptosedum, trailing Jade (Kleinia petrea.)
Thumb of 2016-07-25/purpleinopp/026646

Various smaller stuff in the side-holes. This was put together from existing, already-rooted plants.
Thumb of 2016-07-25/purpleinopp/478227

Kalanchoes & more ornamental purslane (Portulaca umbraticola.) I think this thing was for trapping & observing insects. Much better as a planter, IMVHO. The mesh isn't quite big enough to insert stems, but easy to snip where I want to put them. I'm going to do the sides much more solidly from the top-down, but got too hot to keep at it yesterday. Some of the top plants already had roots, some are cuttings. The Portulaca on the side is all cuttings. I love how they keep blooming while taking root. Also needs a more attractive mode of hanging than the piece of rusty chain... a work in progress.

A new pot put together this past weekend. It has trailing Jade (Kleinia petrea,) starfish cactus (Stapelia,) and Gasteraloe that already had roots, with cuttings of Plectranthus and Euphorbia tithymaloides (which pouts dramatically before taking root.) Also needs a more attractive hanging apparatus.
Thumb of 2016-08-09/purpleinopp/d844fc

This was done about a month ago. The ornamental purslane (Portulaca umbraticola) was added as cuttings.

Two more pots put together this past weekend. These are plants that were in the ground where I want to move my greenhouse. I've been clearing that area.

Ledebouria socialis and kirkii bulbs with Senecio crassissimus and Kalanchoe rosei.

Pencil plant (Euphorbia tirucalli,) donkey ears (Kalanchoe gastonis-bonnieri,) flapjacks/paddle plant (K. luciae,) K. crenata, K. blossfeldiana.

A few of mine, I'm new at this and not sure if all these have similar growth rates.

It's raining so much lately, and by the time frost hits, I need to have my GH moved to a spot where there are plants in the ground at the moment so I've been potting those up. This pot has a little Jade & Kalanchoe that were already rooted & an Echeveria cutting from another pot.

These two pots are all cuttings except the aloe? When they get bigger I will probably rearrange them.

I've had to put these under the front porch roof because it's been raining so often the past couple weeks.
Thumb of 2016-08-20/purpleinopp/da6a94

The ornamental purslane (Portulaca umbraticola) cuttings put in this pot recently are doing well, adding a nice POP of color in the mornings when the blooms are open.

And an update on this pot, first shown 7/25.
