Step 1: Gathering Materials
-Mini Flowerpot ~ $1
-Enough Marbles to fill the flowerpot ~ $1-2
-10 20 Gauge Florist Stem Wire ~$2
-Brown Florist Stem Tape ~ $2
-Wire, I used 24 Gauge ~ $?
-10 5mm RGB Slow Color Changing LEDs With Free Resistors ~ $10
-DC 12v Converter ~ $? Found an old one around the house
-1/8" Drill Bit
Step 2: Preparing for Growing Branches.
1. Firstly we need to randomly cut the 10 stem wires down to whatever sizes you want. These will be used to form and support the branches of the plant.
2. Next, cut matching strips of wire (one negative, one positive) for each matching stem wire but make sure to leave a few inches extra than the stem wire for soldering and such.
Step 3: Preparing The Buds, Or LEDs
1. Wire up 10 Color Changing LEDs with the resistors supplied with the pack you bought. Make sure to attach the resistors to the positive leads of the LEDs which is the longer lead.
2. Wire the LEDs with resistors to the strips of wire you cut for the stems. Make sure to match up the leg of the led with the resistor to the positive wire that you cut for the stems and vise versa for the negatives.
