What to use to keep coconut inserts in flower pots from dripping out bottom.
This has always been a problem especially when you wish to hang a basket indoors, or even on a patio.
I have tried using store-bought plastic liners but it's difficult to find an exact size to fit your basket. But, they sell these at most garden centers so try Ace or TrueValue hardware stores or Lowe's, Amazon, etc. These are usually inexpensive. Check the bottom size.
I save all of my old liners so I can add extra to the padding inside the new liner as it is usually too thin.
I use clay pot liners under the liner. Check the size, but I usually use the 6" size.
This helps but it's too easy to 'over-water' and it fills the liner too fast.
To rectify this, I usually place something like a lady's panty liner or cut to size pieces of women/men's diapers (you want it to cover a large portion of the plant liner).
Some of my friends say these occasionally mildew and they have to redo them but only after at least a year.
Line the coco hanging baskets with plastic grocery store bags with small slits cut in bottom for drainage.
Burlap is an excellent liner.
