Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I have done a similar planting proct using expels for drainage, but not thought of charcoal. I actually have that mustard tin! Succulents are a good choice because they are forgiving to raise. Using larger tins or containers, I have. Christmas cactus and an aloe plant.

Darn auto correct.... Plant project Using pebbles for drainage! I am now thinking of saving possible containers and planting for gifts! That is a win win for the environment and fun!

I have a collection of ancient tins and have been planting in them so happy to see these suggestions. I put charcoal in the bottom of the tins, but had not thought of the pebbles. We shall have a grand re-potting. (Re-tinning?) Thank you for the help

and shall use only succulents this time lol

Um, excuse me while I go thrifting for some new succulent planters!!!
