Inspired by this page I tried my hand at hypertufa but used the new Plus version of the Biopod as a guide instead of the original bucket style.

I used a cardboard box as the mold and some stiff styrofoam from an old couch cushion was used for inside molds for the ramp area.

I used a hypertufa recipe of 1 part Portland cement, 1 part perlite, 1 part peat moss mixed with water in an old wading pool that had a small whole on one side
