Dish Garden Idea
  1. Put the soil in the tray and lightly water to moisten the soil
  2. Dig about a finger length hole in the dirt for your first plant, lightly tap around the plant to secure it in the dirt. Repeat for the other 3 plants
  3. Add in the decorative figurines to create a fun scene for your plants
  4. Add in the white decorative sand to create walkways in the dirt
  5. Add the rocks in around the sand
  6. Lightly water in your terrarium

How to care for your succulent garden

Light– put tray in high light area, outside where your tray gets morning light. Be careful not to leave it in the hot afternoon heat!

Watering– do not over water your plants.. only once a week! Succulents like to be dry but do not starve them of water or they will shrivel!

Growth– As your plants grow you can split them and trim them back, and make more succulents!
