Remember when Clancy and I had the best day ever at a cactus farm??? If not, you better catch up here. Anyways, it was awesome! And since I'm a huge procrastinator it's taken me this long to actually replant these little fellas. #yikes.
I guess it took me so long because all those beautiful succulent gardens and terrariums look pretty intimidating. Well surprise surprise! They are actually SO easy to put together!
What you'll need:
Pick yourself out a nice bowl for your lovely succulents. I liked this clear one because when you're done you can see all the layers of your garden. And if I want to add more succulents there's plenty of extra room.
The big rocks I found are actually for an aquarium but they work great! And they come in a bunch of colors so here's an opportunity to get fancy.
The smaller rocks are just a vase filler I found from Target, they were a bit more than I wanted to spend but I only used about half of them so I have some left over for another project.
Place a layer of big rocks so they cover the bottom of your bowl. This is going to help with drainage so your little baby succulents don't drown.
(I also put a trash bag down to work on for easy clean up. I highly suggest this because the soil tends to get away from you easily.)
Place a layer of the cactus soil on top of the rocks about 1-2 inches thick. Smooth out the top.
Dig a hole big enough to put your first succulent in.
Gently take your succulent out of its original pot and place it in the soil. Smooth the soil around it so the succulent is nice and secure. Repeat with the rest of your succulents.
Add a layer of the smaller rocks on top of your soil and smooth out.
Only 5 steps to making a happy little succulent garden! Hope you all enjoyed this post, be sure to tag us on Instagram @wedressalright and show us how you did!
