Place some small stones or pebbles on the plates. Wet a handful of soil and place it on top.
Place the plant in the center and cover the roots with more moist soil.

Place moss on top and some rocks for decoration. Mist soil, plants and moss with water.
The system should be self-contained once the glass is on top, but if it begins dying out give it a light watering or misting occasionally.


Place the vase over the planting and wipe any dirt showing on the plate with a damp paper towel.
