I'm enjoying the never ending process of adding more plants to our home. When I saw this wide, shallow circle vase I knew it would be the perfect home for a little cacti grouping! I love cacti because they never die. They're cute too, and come in a huge variety. So here's a quick tutorial on how I made this sweet mini garden.
Supplies Needed: A wide, shallow vase (mine is approximately 10 inches wide by 5 inches high), rocks, soil, cactus plants you love (you can mix in some succulents and aloe too if you like!) and a shovel. This project takes about 20 minutes to complete.
Cacti and succulent plants rarely need to be watered. Most people say to water them once or twice a month or when the soil is completely dry.
Step 1: Add some rocks to the bottom of the vase. This will help with drainage when you water them.
Step 2: Add soil. I filled mine to about an inch from the top, but it wasn't densely packed so there was still plenty of room for plants.
Step 3: Plant a group of small plants in the soil. Be sure to space out any colorful cacti.
Step 4: Cover the top of the soil with a thin layer of rocks. It's just for looks! So cute... done!
What about you? Have you planted anything lately? I'd love to see a link to your project. xoxo. Elsie
