papercrete instead of hypertufa~NO Cure Time~The basic recipe for papercrete is approximately 3 parts paper pulp, 2 parts portland cement and 1 part perlite and other optional fillers. Getting the paperpulp made to the right consistency is key. Too wet and the mixture is slumpy and if too dry – crumbly. Make small batches to experiment and get your mixture to your liking.

Very good step-by-step to make #Papercrete. A mix of about 3 parts paper pulp, 2 parts Portland cement and 1 part perlite. Lighter than hyperturfa and perfect newspaper recycling. Should also be good to make #raised beds and #retaining walls.

Decide on the type of flower pot you want to make. The standard recipe uses equal parts of sand, peat moss, and Portland cement. For a smoother finish, use 1 part Portland cement, 1.5 parts sand, and 1.5 parts peat moss. For a lighter flower pot, use equal parts Portland cement, peat moss, perlite, and Fibermesh. To make a flower pot with a sparkly finish, use equal parts Portland cement, peat moss, and vermiculite.

Hypertufa containers are created with a simple equal parts combination of perlite, peat moss and Portland cement. For this project, we will create two hypertufa containers—a large square 12x12 pot    and a small round 8 pot—using old garden store plastic pots as our molds. We used 2 gallons each of perlite, peat moss and Portland cement.
