My First Succulent Mini Garden

IMG_3475

I finally purchased a dish from Goodwill today and put together my first succulent mini garden. I used the bridge and cottage door that I purchased from the Brothers Greenhouses in Port Orchard, WA. The garden looks a little sparse so I may add a few more plants to it later. Please wish me luck that they all survive. I do not have a green thumb like my mother. My husband usually takes care of our houseplants. I seem to let them die by not watering them enough or by watering them too much.

I figured since the succulents seem to be thriving in the outdoor containers that our neighbor put together for us, I might as well peruse them elsewhere. This arrangement will sit in our front window.

Here is what I used for the layers from bottom to the top.

  1. Pebbles for drainage
  2. Activated charcoal (purchased from the pet store)
  3. Potting soil
  4. Decorative pebbles

Here are a few links to a couple of blogs that I found useful.
