Miracle-Gro: The Gro Project – Our Easy Cactus Planter

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Miracle-Gro for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I don't have the biggest green thumb, in fact our small yard lends itself easily to my non-gardening abilities. Miracle-Gro is helping prople like me come up with creative ideas with The Gro Project.  The Gro Project from Miracle-Gro, is a new way of growing for a new kind of gardener. With the right inspiration, they believe you can grow anything. And at Miracle-Gro you'll find everything you need to get started. With tips, tools and a community of growers 1.2 million strong, we'll help you go from "green" to "green thumb".

So take up your trowel, roll up your sleeves and join Miracle-Gro's growing movement. With some inspiration I set out to create this cactus planter that I can keep indoors. I've really been wanting to create something small and stylish for indoors and I finally did it! I started first by finding an adorable pot at a local gardening store. They have so many to pick one so I found one that went nicely with my decor. Then I found the right kind of Miracle-Gro soil for my project.

  Then with the help from my kiddos we found the perfect plants that we wanted to incorporate. I think you can easily mix and match anything you like best and that's what makes this project so easy!

  With just a few easy steps it was really easy to create a new potted planter filled with bright cactus and succulent plant life. I think it turned out really great and proved to myself that growing my own garden can be easy!

  With Miracle-Gro you can easily keep a healthy hyard this year. Use products like the Miracle-Gro® Shake 'n Feed® Continuous Release All Purpose Plant Food which takes the guesswork out of feeding–shakes on in minutes and feeds continuously for up to 3 months. Plus it's great for use on all types of new and existing outdoor flower and vegetable beds, trees and shrubs and also prevents overfeeding and burning when used as directed.

I might also suggest a product like the Miracle-Gro® LiquaFeed® All Purpose Plant Feeding System Starter Kit. The patented feeder and ready-to-use refill bottle system takes the guesswork out of feeding: No mixing, no measuring, no mess! No more guessing when the plant food is gone–when the bottle empties, feeding is done. Plus you can automatically applies plant food at an even rate–no worry of over- or under-feeding.

    I have used Miracle Grow potting so before for my flowers. I didn’t know they also have a special soil for cactus’. I have several cactus that I need to transfer into bigger pots. I will have to look for it. You planter turned out great!

    That is the same soil I use for my terrariums. I Find that if I mix it with Miracle Gro African Violet soil the two work,well together. I often do that as I mix succulents and cacti and moss. I prefer open terrariums and succulent gardens like yours. I also purchased rocks used in aquariums. They are super small and help when I do water to keep things neat.
