This is not particularly innovative, as all it consists of is putting some plants in different containers with compost, pebbles, sand and/or moss, but here are a few of the ones I’ve made. For the first one, I used a big glass jar, although I put the layers down in the wrong order (as the sand and gravel should go at the very bottom to absorb excess water). The jar has got an airtight lid, but the plant is too tall and I don’t want to risk killing it, so I always leave it open.
I also had a go at using a small fish bowl.
This time I did it properly. First, I added a layer of gravel (I bought some aquarium gravel).
Then I added some compost, put in the plant, and topped it with a layer of moss (that I’d picked up at the park) and more gravel. The cat supervised my job and gave his approval.
It couldn’t be any easier!
