i love it ,and i have a question. Does the dirt stay packed in the bowl pretty well? I mean, i'm just kinda afraid it'd fall out the hole at the bottom...or would you just have the plant bowl on top of something else at all times to keep dirt from falling out?

You could see about getting a cool black plate to match the bowl, and sit it on top of that.  Or you could find some fiberglass screen (even like, a scrap of that netting-like fabric stuff, I think it's tulle but I'm clueless) and put it in the bottom of the planter before you put dirt in, it should help hold it in.

It's late, and I've been wondering...  How I can stay awake so long and miss so much...

That looks so neat! I don't like 'normal' planters, because I can never find any that fit the way I want my home to look (i.e. not boring :p)

I love cats. I love tea. That's me in a nutshell.

Normal planters have two or three holes in the bottom and usually there is a tray you put underneath to catch the excess water. I went to the thrift store and bought a black saucer and it looks really good with the record. I think it will work out fine. Some people place a terra cotta shard on top of the hole to prevent leakage but plants need those holes or they might die from getting water-logged.

Not trying to bust in to the conversation, but try a coffee filter in the bottom of the record bowl.  Holds in dirt and lets the water drip slooooowly away!  I made one (yeah, I copied from here!) and glued black beads on for feet.  Looks pretty nifty...I just have to remember there's a hole in it when I water it.  I try killing green things, too.  What works for me is Pothos Ivy.  Speaking of, today is plant watering day!!  Bye *hurries away with watering can*

Of cabbages and kings.
And why the sea is boiling hot

putting beads on the bottom is a great idea. I think I'll go add some to my planters now....

I've always had a problem with killing plants myself! Then my grandma got me a couple bamboo plants, which you keep in water with some stones and marbles. I've had them for months now and they are doing great! I'm getting some dirt plants to see if I'm ready to grow them, and if they survive, I'm going to plant myself a little vegitable garden in the spring! If your a natural brown thumb, get some bamboo plants and all you have to do is change the water every 3-5 days! It's ok if you forget and let it go for 7 days! It really helps you to get into a rutine of checking it and careing for it! Then when it's still alive 6 months later, you can reward yourself with a plant that grows in dirt, and you'll be ready to care for it! Most plants need watered every 3-5 days, just be carefull not to over water them! Good luck!  Wink
