Make it Monday: tropical display

Make it Monday: tropical display


Posted 18th Sep 2017

Cacti are meant to be a good luck symbol for a new home, and they also look great in any room…

This quick tutorial will let you create your own tropical display, ideal for your windowsill, cabinet or shelf - and it's super easy too.

You’ll need:

Duerr’s jar(s)
Potted mini cactus
Loose gravel, chippings or decorative stones (you’ll find these in garden centres)
A spoon

Directions

1 Empty out and clean your Duerr’s jar so it’s ready to house your prickly new pal.

2 Carefully remove your cactus from the plastic pot it arrived in, but keep the soil around the bottom.

3 Pour half an inch height of gravel into the bottom of the jar to make a base for the cactus.

4 Drop the cactus into the pot and wedge it into the gravel (watch your fingers!) until it can stand upright.

5 Then simply spoon more gravel into the jar to steady the cactus and cover the soil.
