    Yah it might seem redneckish, but I've seen it done before. This way I don't have to spend any extra money on buying a container. Plus I think the fact that most of the plants are native to the south, they won't feel too out of place

    I finally got the materials of the tub. It is procillen with a iron center. I know I'll have to clean it up quite a bit because it has been sitting outside for years collecting water. Would cleaning it out with bleach be fine? As for as sealing the tub any tips? I just remembered that the tub is full sized and has the facuet still on it.

    You mean something like this (forgive the ratty look of the plants - it's fall here in SF):


    I didn't do anything special - I just left the drain like it was (but put a mesh screen over it.) It drains VERY slowly and stays good and wet. I used peat, perlite, and a decent amount of lfs, and filled it to the holes left by the faucet.

    Yeah. Something like that. Though unfortunatly the tube I'll be using isn't footed. I really love the claw and ball footing you have there.
