    you should have put fibreglass mesh in there to reinforce it, regular ol concrete is rather fragile, also you can ratchet strap an orbital sander to the side to vibrate the concrete and get rid of any air bubbles.

    i´ve tried this kind of technique a couple of times and the results are awesome but about weeks after the pots started to crack. Does anyone knows a way to prevent the pots start cracking? I´ve tried almost every thing with no good results :(

    Great job.

    Open question to the forum: perhaps there is a better way to prevent the concrete from sticking to the foam and cabinet ? Wax paper ? Oil ? That way you can re-use the foam and cabinet to make another one.

    Great video mate, just a quick question: doesn't concreate absorb water from the soil and by doing so mess up humidity of the soil? Tnx in advance

    Maybe three years late but have you thought of reprising ( I haven't watched many of your videos ) this project using hypertufa ( search Google or Wikipedia for the information ). Pretty fine build as is but reducing the weight would be a nice result. Like others have said the single use foam board should be eliminated and replaced in some more recyclable fashion.
