Succulents in cans for an indoor plate garden
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Supplies Needed
-succulents of your choosing (i got mine at lowes)
-plate (this is actually a stainless steel dog food "platter" that was on clearance, but any plate should be fine)
-cans of various heights
-dremel or other drilling tool
Step 2: Drill Holes
Drill drainage holes in bottom of each can
Step 3: Filling the Cans
Fill bottoms of cans with pebbles for weight and drainage
Fill cans about half full with cactus soil
Step 4: Plant the Succulents
Remove plastic pots and insert plant into can
Fill in around the plant and adjust height of soil if necessary
(succulents can be planted close together since they are slow growing)
Step 5: Finishing Up
Fill plate with pebbles
Arrange cans on pebbles.
Make sure to follow the label directions for the succulents and don't over water them!
