This sweet little planter belonged to my Grandma. She had a fierce green thumb and could grow anything.
I had a shamrock (oxalis) house plant that hung in with me and my less-than-fierce green thumb for over 15 years. No, I don’t keep track of my houseplant’s birthdays; I only know this because he moved jobs with me and I’ve been at this job for 15 years. Over the past year he started languishing and I knew it was time to let him go to Jesus.

See that drainage hole? If you plant without blocking it, when you water the plant the fresh soil will wash right out and you’ll have a muddy planter tray. Not pretty.
To prevent that we’re literally going to filter it. With a paper coffee filter, or three.
Place the first filter over the drainage hole and then layer a few more in the bottom of the pot. Without disturbing the filters, carefully place the plant in the pot. Top off with extra soil if needed and you’re done!
Enjoy your new house plant!
