Step by step of the cement vessel
- Using the bowl or bucket, mix four pieces of sand to one of cement and add water until a homogeneous consistency and not too thick, similar to a cake dough. If you prefer to use mortar, just add water until you reach the right point.
- Take the pots that will serve as mold and brush Vaseline or oil on them in the inner part. The pots that will be used to make the opening of the pot must also be anointed with oil, but only on the outside. This step is important to facilitate misinformation.
- Fill the pots with the mixture and place the smaller pot in the middle to mark the location of the plant. Fill this pot with pebbles or some other material that prevents the mold from rising.
- After about 24 to 36 hours, the vessel will be dry and ready to be uninformed. Do not forget to drill a hole in the bottom of the pot to drain the water.
- Ready. Now you can choose the little plant and set it in the new pot.

- Then take the towel that will be used and soak it with water. Then immerse it in the cement mix, ensuring that all its parts have been completely covered by the dough.
- Turn the bucket upside down and cover it with the towel. The larger the towel, the larger the vase will remain, so if you want a smaller vase, cut the towel.
