Introduction: 3D Printed Bulbasaur Planter
A quick little project for a succulent or cactus planter!
Step 1: Print
Here's the file - not my design! Credit to Hitsman.
I printed at .15mm, 7% infill, 2 shells, on a Replicator 2.
Step 2: Drill (optional)
Ideally the model would have a bigger hole, but this works just fine.
If your plant doesn't have any roots, skip this step!
Step 3: Paint (Optional)
Since I didn't have this color PLA, I just bought some spraypaint. I used Montana Black - Tiffany.
Step 4: Plant
To begin, I put a small layer of pebbles for drainage at the bottom of the pot. Ideally, the pot should have holes in the bottom as well.
I used a potting mixture of 2:1 soil to sand.
The cactus I used is a Astrophytum myriostigma. I purchased one here:
After digging the cactus out of its original pot, clear the extra dirt off the roots. Then carefully tuck it into the planter. I used a small stick to help push the roots through. Then, dig a small hole in the pot for the roots. Add your planter! Be sure to put extra dirt inside the planter itself! The stick can help here too.
iSuat made it!
