I wanted to create an eye catching centerpiece for our new home that was also low maintenance. I seem to have a black thumb when it comes to flowers, so I went the simple route.. succulents and cacti! These are great if you’re a little bit forgetful when it comes to plants!

Add river stones to the bottoms of your wine glasses about ½” to 1″ deep.

Add a small amount of potting soil, plant succulent or cactus, and fill in remaining area with soil, leaving about an inch of room from the top of the glass.

Give them direct sunlight every day for at least 5 or 6 hours and water every 2 weeks. After watering, there shouldn’t be more than an inch of water visible in the stones at the bottom.
