Today, we want to offer a more interesting option – modular floor pots for plants These pots are made of cement, accessories and low cost materials, are in the form of equilateral triangles, it is convenient to assemble in groups, adding a variety of shapes and compositions .
MATERIALS AND TOOLS FOR THE MANUFACTURE OF WALL POTS
Thick cardboard for making molds
Plastic containers for mixing cement slurry
Knife or scissors stationery, glue, tape
Gloves and respirator
HOW TO MAKE CEMENT BOTTLES FOR YOUR PLANTS
On paper, draw a pattern in the form of two equilateral triangles, the faces are in contact with the squares. One pattern should be slightly smaller than the second.
Apply patterns to the poster board and draw with a pencil. The pieces, a large and a smaller one required for each pot (the smaller one goes inside the larger mold). Cut out the blank space, fold and tail the shape of the side wall with the help of masking tape. From thin strips of cardboard make small triangles and glue them to the bottom of the outer starting piece. These triangles are needed in order to form in the cement drainage holes.
In a plastic container, knead the cement and sand. For added durability to the mix, you can add gravel.
Note: when working with recommended cement wear gloves and a dust mask.
Pour the mixture into the form until it reaches the edges of the triangular parts at its bottom.
Insert the cardboard smaller, place it in the center. Fill the space between the outer and inner walls. The whole space is filled to the mixture.
Leave to dry three days to harden the solution. To avoid the appearance of cracks can be smoothed with water and cement only.
Three days later, remove the molds. Since cement is an alkaline material, it can be difficult to influence the growth of plants, pots need to macerate for a day in a container with water, and then dry.
Now cement pots can be painted in the right color and then put them plastic plants, or plants you want .
.Pots a few weeks should be placed in a horizontal position, so that the roots of succulent plants evolved, and potting soil is set.
The pots can be hung on the wall or stacked to form a variety of shapes.
