  • Enamel milk pails

  • Plastic pot

  • Sword ferns


  1. Place sword ferns (Nephrolepis obliterata 'Kimberly Queen') or similar plants in 10-inch pots inside large buckets (left); consider ferns in 4- to 8-inch pots for smaller pails.

  2. If the bucket is too deep, put an upturned plastic pot inside, and stand the plant on top. Remove plant to water.
