Step 9: Add a plant

Picture of Add a plant
Since there are no drainage holes in the planter I added a layer of gravel and some activated charcoal on the bottom.  I then transplanted a small houseplant into the planter. 

In hindsight, I could have added drainage holes to the bottom of the liner and put a small saucer underneath to collect excess water, since plants grow better with proper drainage.
