These are the necessary items:

• Whatever glass container you have or choose from the store

• Sea sand

• Material for isolating in order to prevent the seashells mixing with the sand and the sand moisturizing from the watering of the plant. I personally chose nylon because it was near at hand

• Seashells

• Plant

Step 2: Basis
