double-duty hanging baskets
On a balcony or porch, space is usually an issue, and the naked side of a pot is really boring. I had this idea to poke holes in the sides to add more plants, dangling creepers... Some have the same plant added all the way around, some have a mix. Did the top one over the weekend, the others in the past few days, so they don't look like much yet.
Does this give you ideas?
Begonia, Tradescantia zebrina, Thanksgiving cactus
Other Begonia, T. zebrina, Callisia, various Philos, Hypoestes
TC again, T. zebrina, wax Begonia, I forget who the little white fuzzy plant is.
Other side of same, also some Tradescantia fluminensis.
Succulent pot with Tradescantia sillamontana, Senecio rowleyanus, various Sedums and Crassulas.
Other side, some moss roses (Portulaca.)
To poke the holes, I used a hammer to tap awl through the side, then used a phillips' head screwdriver to make them bigger. Snap off stems, stick in holes. I'm not sure why I own an awl, I didn't buy it, but it often comes in handy!
