hey all!
What useless things at home can be separated to use as pots at home?
Have you made any such pot?

Are you talking about for seed starting or for long term nice looking pots?

I've taken old plastic containers (tupperware type) that have spaghetti stains or food stain in them that are less attractive or have lost the tops and cut holes in the bottom and used those. You can use sour-cream, cottage cheese, butter plastic containers too. Also when I get fast food containers that are plastic with a clear dome, I save those for seed starting or sedum cuttings.

I have used #10 food cans and with a quick coat of rust-o-leum they and a couple of holes in the bottom and good to go. They make great gazing ball stands too.
