Step By Step Guide To Indoor Planting Using Liners
Assess The Plant Height
Place the plant in its grow pot inside the liner (do not repot in the liner). Check the height of the plant in the decorative planter. Aim to have a gap of approx. 3-4cm between the rim of the grow pot and the rim of the decorative planter.
Insert The Waterproof Liner
Place the liner in the decorative planter and push down to the base, to ensure it covers any drainage holes in the base of the decorative planter.
Fit The Liner
Push the liner to the internal walls of the planter. If the liner still has pleats or folds or protrudes above the decorative planter, this can be adjusted.
Trim The Waterproof Liner
If the liner protrudes above the decorative planter or has pleats when inserted, trim the liner down for a better fit in the decorative planter. Tip: trim down in small increments and check for a flush fit.
Refit The Liner
After trimming the liner, aim for a flusher fit against the internal walls in the decorative planter. If some pleats remain or the liner is slightly away from the walls this is still fine.
Surround With Clay Pebbles
Fill around the grow pot with clay pebbles to hide the grow pot. If the liner is not flush to the internal walls fill the gap with clay pebbles as well.
Create A Neat Finish
Add a cover of clay pebbles to the top to hide the grow pot rim and any liner that shows.
Check For Watering
Always use a moisture meter to check water levels at the roots before watering. Take readings around the plant and only water when dry/low moisture. Add a dash of liquid feed every other watering during the spring - early autumn.
