Modern Planter (Plant in Spring)

How to:

  • Place a piece of scotch tape over the drainage hole to prevent soil from leaking while working.
  • Cut a length of fabric that will wrap around the pot completely. Leave extra room for folding the top and bottom.
  • Lay the fabric onto the pot and coat a small section of the pot with Mod Podge with a brush or sponge.
  • Continue covering the pot and coating with Mod Podge, all the way around the entire "body" of the pot.
  • Cut slits in the fabric on the top and bottom to prevent the fabric from overlapping.
  • Trim the fabric on the top and bottom so that there is approx. 1" (2.5 cms) of extra fabric hanging over.
  • At the top, fold the fabric into the pot, coat the fabric with Mod Podge so it stays in place. Continue to do so all around the top.
  • Then follow with the same instructions on the bottom. Don't cover drainage hole with fabric.
  • Let pot dry (should dry within 15 minutes).
  • Fill pot 2/3 full of soil.
  • Add Ixia bulbs (pointed ends up) then cover with soil to the top.
  • Water very sparingly (1/4 C.) until the pot is placed outside in a sunny location (don't forget to remove the scotch tape from the bottom of the pot.)
  • Blooms in 8-10 weeks.
  • Water throughout the flowering season (keep containers out of the rain, as the glue will wash off. Place under a covered location outside for best results.)
