Description: The IKEA Tradig is a perfect fruit bowl and it also makes an excellent planter. All you need is the bowl, a coconut shell liner made for hanging baskets, soil, and some plants.
When I could not find a coconut shell liner small enough to fit, I cut a couple of inches off the smallest size I could get at the garden center. I started out simple with just some dwarf papyrus and then spruced it up with a few hens & chicks and other small succulents. So far the Tradig is holding up nicely outdoors in the Midwest. My plants are thriving!
