HOW TO MAKE AN INDOOR MINIATURE SUCCULENT GARDEN ARRANGEMENT WITH A MIXTURE OF SUCCULENTS, CACTUS PLANTS / CACTUS, CORAL ROCKS, A TINY WATERFALL FOUNTAIN AND POND WITH TROPICAL FISH – HOMEMADE DIY MINI FAIRY GARDEN IDEAS
I’ve wanted to make a succulent garden for so long now, but the cost of these plants in India is so expensive. Finally I found a cheap source online and so I ordered lots ready for this miniature arrangement – on a budget! These include a crassula bonsai tree (Jade plant / money plant), as well as various sedums and sempervivums.
I found the aquarium rocks on Amazon and used these to create a desert landscape arrangement for this succulent garden, landscaping with gravel, a large central pond with tropical fish (guppies, mollies and pink zebra fish / zebrafish / danios – not glofish) and a miniature garden waterfall filter for aeration and water quality for the aquarium fish living in the pond (biological filtration). A fun, easy and cheap water feature and rock garden combined.
SUCCULENT TIPS FOR BEGINNERS / CACTUS GARDENING IDEAS
Succulents are easy to grow in containers and miniature gardens, but they do require plenty of daylight, as well as a free-draining soil with plenty of gravel / sand, such as perlite or vermiculite. Treat them like a cactus – water and feed in the summer, and keep them much drier in the winter.
HOW TO PROPAGATE SUCCULENTS – PROPAGATING TIPS AND IDEAS
Succulent plants are generally very easy to propagate from cuttings, especially when you use hormone rooting powder. Often the cuttings benefit from being allowed to dry out first for a day or two. The soil must never be wet and soggy though.
PLANTING IDEAS AND CACTI GARDENING TIPS
Succulents and cactus plants are perfect for growing as houseplants, in jars, in miniature gardens, dishes, bottles, terrariums and all kinds of containers. They look really cool in glasses with layered sand.
