How to make a mini cactus garden

Supplies Needed: A wide, shallow vase (mine is approximately 10 inches wide by 5 inches high), rocks, soil, cactus plants you love (you can mix in some succulents and aloe too if you like!) and a shovel. This project takes about 20 minutes to complete. Cacti and succulent plants rarely need to be watered. Most people say to water them once or twice a month or when the soil is completely dry. Step 1: Add some rocks to the bottom of the vase. This will help with drainage when you water them. Step 2: Add soil. I filled mine to about an inch from the top, but it wasn't densely packed so there was still plenty of room for plants. Step 3: Plant a group of small plants in the soil. Be sure to space out any colorful cacti. Step 4: Cover the top of the soil with a thin layer of rocks. It's just for looks! So cute... done!
