Batch #3 is now curing and should be coming along just fine as we've had lot's and lot's of rain. Since these tufa pots call for slow cure this works great. I tend to get a little anxious and want to get to them and just plant them up. Not really sure what will happen to these but I see lot's of "gifts" in their future. Actually, a couple of these have been promised and hope they like them.
We've tried a new recipe for these and I really like the look and the texture.
Here is our new recipe:
1 part Portland Cement
1 part Peatmoss
1 part Pearlite
a little under 1 part water.
Our first recipe did not include the pearlite but used vermiculite. I'm thinking that this will also be a bit lighter in weight.
Well......now if the sun ever comes out we can see how they measure up.
