VERY Simple Indoor Gardening

April 22, 2014 by 8 Comments

Succulents and Mason Jars are two of my FAVORITE things!  Succulents – because they are some of the easiest houseplants.  And Mason Jars – because the uses are endless.  Combine the two and you get VERY Simple Indoor Gardening that is real CUTE!  These are great to give as a gift or to use in your own kitchen, to line the window sill.  And the price is ridiculous — most of us have mason jars lying around and garden centers sell succulents for around a dollar each.  The variety of succulents is a total blast!

1.  Fill the mason jar with some loose soil.

2.  Add the rim without adding the lid.

3. Make a hole in the soil, place the succulent, then press the soil firmly around.

Succulents require very little water.  If your little one will be helping you care for the plant, keep the moisture level more balanced by adding a little sand or a few pebbles to the bottom of the mason jar before adding the soil and plant.  Happy Indoor Gardening!!!

    Great idea! I love outdoor gardening and do pretty well at it but the indoor – well let’s just say that I have killed more than one cactus in my lifetime. I recently discovered the ease of a succulent and actually have one that I have kept alive for a few months now. There is hope for me yet : ) I will definintely be trying your jar idea. Happy Wednesday!
