Create a Succulent Garden

Trendy succulents are fun and easy to grow, which makes them perfect for dish gardens. Because they come from parts of the world with hot, arid climates, they can tolerate the dry air inside most homes, and they’re happy with little more than a spot by a sunny window. 


~ Succulents
~ Cacti and Succulent Potting Mix
~ Small rocks or pea gravel
~ Flowerpot or terrarium dish


~ Place a few rocks in the bottom of your bowl. Although the succulents don’t need to be watered often, it is important for drainage when you do need to. 
~ Add a small layer of soil to overtop of the rocks. 
~ Remove your succulents from their pots and loosely soften the roots. Figure out where you want your succulents to be placed and make a small hole in the dirt for them. Add another layer of soil overtop to cover the rest of the roots. 
~ Once all of your succulents are in the bowl where you want them and they have been covered with soil and a layer of rocks over top.
