How to make a rock planter

It’s not necessary to be an expert gardener to keep the greenery growing in style at home. When the mood calls for some indoor greenery, a rock planter is the perfect base display for indoor foliage that doesn’t require a ton of attention. This time-efficient project keeps the materials natural and the final effect delightful.
Attached with nothing more than super glue, it doesn’t take much to strategically place beautiful stones into an arrangement fit for holding houseplants. A rock planter provides an opportunity for creative inspiration, with options to change up the hue, size or texture of the rocks to fit the look of the room. Beautiful to display and simple to move around at will, a rock planter can play host to a variety of plants and flowers in the home.
