If you have an outdoor pond you probably also need to save your water plants over Winter. The nice solution here is to bring this little piece of outdoor gardening inside. There are many ways to do that but the creative one is to make some tabletop water gardens. This is a super easy and rewarding way to keep a little green on your thumb.
Here’s what you will need
- A glass container, bowl, or something similar
- Water plants such as taro, water lettuce, water hyacinth, duck weed, fairy moss etc.
- Plastic pots shorter than the height of your glass vessel
- Assorted rocks
- Potting soil
- Charcoal bits
- Pure water
The idea is quite similar to the idea of making DIY tabletop terrariums we already showed you. For the full set of instructions with photos visit Radmegan’s blog.
