Start a Succulent Garden of Your Very Own

All you need is a shallow glass bowl or terrarium, cactus potting soil, sand, charcoal, rocks, and your favorite succulents. First, put sand in the bowl, then sprinkle in some charcoal. Add some potting soil and then rocks on top. Finally, plant a few succulents. Water them with a spray bottle, but make sure the soil dries completely before the next watering. You can snag a plant that’s rooting for you at Down to Earth Garden Center
