Repurposed light fixture, now planter
DH found this, and asked if I wanted it. Heck yeah! Took 2 glass panels out in the back for access, air flow, and for the plants to 'spill' out. That's where the sun will hit it, if at all, a few minutes in the morning on one side, a few mins in the evening on the other. He gutted the electricals for me, found a plastic pot to kind of fit. While he was doing that, I was inspecting plants, thinking about what should go in it, and where. (Obviously shade or I'd be watering the 3 oz. of soil every 6.5 minutes.) I'd pretty much decided when he pointed to some Callisia repens and said something like, 'what about this stuff?' Identical idea to mine. ...and I didn't think he was paying much attention. He rocks!
Callisia repens, about 10 little snips. The urge to stuff more in there instantly was hard to overcome, it will be hard to see the light thing by the time serious cold takes this stuff out. Any imaginings for something different next year? ...tiny leaves, total shade, needing to trim is fine, flowers would be awesome although I can't think of anything. And I LOVE tiny flowers. Hmm...
Have you repurposed a light fixture? If so, please feel free to share.
