I have a decorative container that has no drainage holes, what do I do?

Decorative Containers And Drainage Holes

Many decorative containers can be purchased that do not have drainage holes. If you prefer to not drill drainage holes into them, simply place a level layer of rocks or pebbles into the decorative container. Then, place your plant into a pot that does have drainage holes and put it into the decorataive container on top of the rock layer. Spaces between the two pots can be filled with soil or peat moss or simply left empty. Putting a piece of rope or other material around the second pot will make it easier to seperate the two pots without disturbing the plant or taking a chance on dumping soil.
