Hypertufa is a creative and inexpensive way to decorate your porch, patio, balcony or garden.
This mixture of Portland cement, peat moss and perlite can be molded into containers that are modern or rustic, and completely original.
Learn how to create hypertufa containers, gather your materials, and let inspiration take over.
After the containers have cured, pair the containers with succulents, air plants, ferns and bright-colored annuals.
1. Centerpiece with succulents. The rough texture and neutral palette of hypertufa lends itself to a variety of shapes. Seek everyday containers to be used as molds to create cylinders and bowls. Get seasonal decorating inspiration with our ideas for harvest centerpieces using hypertufa.
2. Make a succulent dish garden out of a large hypertufa container. Add potting mix designed for cactus and succulents and fill in with your favorite succulents like echeveria and hens and chicks. A bit of Spanish moss makes an attractive nest for the plants. Pick up more dish garden tips.
3. Give yourself a hand when you attempt this clever hypertufa project that begins with rubber gloves. Fill the hand with air plants and moss, or maybe a candle. Check out a variation of this project at the Home Depot Community.
