What you'll do

The workshop will take place at Harry Mayesh After Hours I've created a step by step how to. • Start with a medium-sized, clear glass open-top container. You can use anything that strikes your fancy—a vase, a cleaned-out pasta jar, a fish bowl, or a special terrarium bowl. • Fill the bottom of the vessel with a 1 1/2-inch layer of small rocks to collect the water drainage. • Add a layer of potting soil made for succulents and cacti. It should be deep enough for the plants to root to, about 2 1/2 inches. • Remove the largest plant from its container and dust excess soil off the roots. Using the end of a spoon, make a hole in the soil big enough for the roots and nestle the plant inside, tamping the soil down firmly to hold it in place. Plan for approximately 1 plant per inch of container diameter. Tip: Use a paper towel to transplant prickly cacti to avoid pricking your fingers. Continue planting the rest of the succulents, working from largest to smallest. It’s easiest to start at the back of the container and work your way forward. Tip: Play around with the arrangement—mixing up the types of plants, colors, and sizes to make it more visually pleasing. • Once the plants are arranged, add about a 1/4-inch layer of white sand around the plants. Finish with some landscaping. Place a few additional pebbles here and there to complete the look.
