A Mother's Day Project or Gift: Creating A Table Top Garden Using Succulents

Now that the Florida heat is beginning to kick into high gear, sitting outside on the patio looking at our beautiful garden is great in the morning and late evening but exhausting at noon. It's time to bring some plant color into the house to enjoy!

This is such an easy project to create and all for under $40!

Succulent care is easy, and succulent gardens and terrariums will brighten any indoor space. Learn about the best types of succulents to grow in the home at

First of all find an attractive container to put your indoor garden into, I really love this oversize pottery shell! Just perfect as our family collects shells and display them in enormous jars.

Get some quality potting soil, the Nature's Care brand retains water. Don't forget succulents do not need very much watering at all.

Choose attractive succulents that vary in texture and color, don't plan on putting too many in one container.

Fill the container half way, so the plants sit in the soil and you still have enough room to top up.

Put your plants in, top up with soil, I used blue aquarium rocks to keep the soil in place and create additional visual texture and color.

Add a little whimsy. A Fairy house would also be really pretty.

....and voila! 

Note the huge jar of shells in the background, we love the beach!


  1. That is lovely! I am going to have to "borrow" this idea. Love it!

  2. Enjoy, I hope to see your project. Thank you!
