Ceramic Insulator Succulent Planters

A friend of mine gave me a box of old ceramic electrical insulators it took a while but I finally decided what to do with some of them I love succulents so…
I always overbuy succulents…this time was no different I bought these at Home Depot (great selection and reasonably priced) I thought I’d use one for each insulator turns out I needed to split each of them to fit so I ended up planting almost all of them…
A small amount of pea gravel in the bottom of the insulators aid with drainage – important!
The best way I’ve found to water these or any small container planter is with a meat flavor injector it gets the water where it needs to be!
Love, love, love how they turned out! I made them for gifts but I kind of want to keep them…all of them
Love succulents in glass insulators too!
