HOW-TO: HANGING PLANTER
WORDS: Kate Weiner

Hanging planters are a sweet and simple gift. The cedar wood frame that we used above was a fortunate yard-sale find from a thoughtful friend. However, you can find the frame at many local nurseries and Etsy has a couple great handmade options.
what you'll need:
- Wall planter
- Wire cutters
- organic soil
- Flip planter over so that the wire netting is face-down.
- Unlock side latch and remove the base board.
- Fill frame with soil and firmly pack into place.
- Reinsert base board and lock side latch.
- Flip planter over so that the wire netting is face-up. Map out where you would like to root your succulents. Make sure that you have at least an inch between each stem.
- Using wire cutters, make holes that are just big enough to give your succulents both room to grow and a structured support system.
- Once you have nestled your plants into place, spritz with water and let rest two weeks. This will give the succulents ample time to take root.
- Lightly water every two to three days. After two weeks, you can hang up your planter. Enjoy!
