Repotted polka dot and nerve plant
I bought these cuties a month ago and recently repotted them in this repurposed candle container.😃

    PlntNrd So just a little warning with this. It may not happen to you and you might be able to totally disregard this message, but....
    I also did this with a candle holder that looks very similar. It was a candle that I got in a FabFitFun subscription box. I drilled a hole in the bottom and planted a cute little succulent in it. As the months went by I started noticed the metal turning blue/green and this thick powdery stuff accumulating around the inside of the pot. It turned out the metal was tarnishing from when I would water my plant and I had a succulent in there, so it wasn’t that often. I only noticed it because my succ started looking sickly and dying. I couldn’t figure out why and I started investigating. I’m pretty positive that the tarnished metal was poisoning my plant. I moved it to a different pot and now it’s fine. So, just keep an eye out looking at inside rim of the pot every time you water and if you start seeing a blue or green color change, think about maybe using something else for your plant.

      Yecenia Thanks for your concern, experienc, and suggestion. I actually researched using metal planters before I repotted the plants.
