Paint pots and saucers with a foam brush. Let them dry completely before planting.
Add a layer of small rocks to the bottom of a 12" - 16" pot with a ½" hole for drainage. Spread evenly, making sure no rocks are covering the drainage hole. Note: Can use a smaller pot initially, then transplant to a larger pot later on.
Using a well-draining alkaline potting mix, break up large clots with hands. Spread a 1" layer over the small rocks at the bottom of the pot.
Place your plant in center of pot, gently loosening roots. Fill the pot with soil to within a couple inches from the top, then lightly pat soil.
Add mulch or decorative rocks to top of soil, if desired.
Print care instructions and tie onto pot with garden twine.
