Packing Peanuts For House Plants

To lighten the weight of a planter (indoors or outside), fill the bottom quarter of your pot or planter with packing peanuts or Styrofoam. This is really a four in one tip:

    Ad
  1. It lightens the total weight.
  2. It enables you to "stretch"' your potting soil.
  3. It is good for the roots of plants.
  4. It aids drainage.

And it keeps that expanded foam out of your local landfill.
