Common Name - CACTUS GARDEN
Cactus gardens are meant to be seen and admired close up, so choose either an ornamental or neutral container. For soil, use special “cactus mixes” sold in online garden suppliers or mix equal parts potting soil and builder’s sand or perlite. you could put tall plants in the center and work outward, placing small species at the edge and letting trailing ones spill over the rim of the pot. Once you’ve put the cacti in place and gently tamped the soil around them, add a top dressing of pebbles. This layer is usually about 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick and is more than just cosmetic. The loose stone allows air circulation while providing additional support for the shallow-rooted plants. As odd as it might seem, don’t water your garden for at least a week after planting. This gives the roots a chance to adjust. Some folks only water their cactus garden when the weather has reported rain in Tuscon, Arizona. As cacti gardens go, a dish with a few examples and some pebbles can be kind of boring.
