Tea cups as a flowerpot on the balcony

I have so many old tea cups that I do not use and that just block the space in the cupboard. Now I have converted them into flowerpots. Not only does it look cute on the balcony, it also looks great as a table decoration.

This is needed:

  • Old cups
  • potting soil
  • Gypsophila and chickweed (alternatively: forget-me-not, male faithful)

That's how it's done:

To grow my little tea cups, it took me some time to find suitable plants that grow in the cup and have delicate flowers. As the soil in the small vessels dries out more easily in the summer, plants such as chickweed (white flowers) are particularly well suited. It needs little water and tolerates dry times. Even gypsophila, forget-me-not or male faithful can be planted in cups. To prevent waterlogging, you can drill a small hole in the bottom of the cup through the porcelain. Make sure to stick a cross under the cup before drilling with a painter's crepe and then drill. Without a crab the cup can jump.
