Picture of FORMING THE SPHERE

With the help of the ball form two half sphere of iron wire . You can use some tape or use some really thin iron wire to keep the iron wire in place.

They don't need to be perfect at all, just to old the shape.

(You may find something already made from some craft or gardening store).

Step 3: COVER THE SPHERE

Cover each half sphere with the succulents, inserting the roots between the holes.

(If your succulent don't have any roots you may place them with a staple after completing next step, or use some transparent thread).

Step 4: ADD THE MOSS

Leave an empty space for the dirt in the middle of the ball.

Very nice! I've been wanting to make one of these, but have not found directions that I liked. Yours are very well thought out and workable. I will be making some soon, and post pics :)

how long does it stay alive? do you need to flip it for sunlight/drainage?

Very cute!

Thanks!

Now I hanged mine from a rope so that they don't touch the wall, so I didn't had to turn them, but otherwise you may have to turn them every wile.

And you can keep them there until they don't grow too much (eventually you may have to plant them in the dirt), but it take long time, because the succulents grow slow when they don't have much space.
