Sedum pluricaule, one of my favorite Sedum

My succulent container is a satellite dish planter, made from several old satellite dishes that have been discarded.

I punched holes in the bottom for drainage, and painted the edges with my favorite Blue Fox Farm blue paint. Planted with Sempervivum and Jovibarba, these dishes will stay outside all year, gradually filling in with more chicks as they propagate themselves.

Rarely watered, never fertilized, the three tiered wedding cake will eventually need to be taken apart for rebuilding and rejuvenating.

Now that's a use for used dishes that I never thought of. No landfill madness here.
