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:
- It lightens the total weight.
- It enables you to "stretch"' your potting soil.
- It is good for the roots of plants.
- It aids drainage.
And it keeps that expanded foam out of your local landfill.
