I am not big on gardening or anything having to do with plants and flowers. Maybe it is because I live in an apartment, so I don’t have the space to have a garden of my own and I don’t have to work in the yard because our apartment complex takes care of it. Perhaps, gardening and lawn care is something I’ll become interested in once I own a house or have a space where I can plant, but until then I’ll make due with some great projects from Miracle-Gro!
The Gro Project features a collection of really fun garden projects that can be completed individually or as a family. It provides beginners information on gardening for those of us (like me!) that aren’t familiar with gardening and aren’t exactly sure where to start. I browsed through The Gro Project and found some really cool ideas that I plan on trying out when I get some extra money to buy the supplies. One of the projects I really liked was the Toyarium.
For the Toyarium, you need the following supplies:
- Fishbowl or glass container – that you don’t mind filling with dirt
- Favorite succulents and cactus
- Miracle-Gro Moisture Control Potting Mix
- Plastic toys or figurines
- A spoon
To make a Toyarium, you follow these simple instructions:
- Cover the bottom of the container or fishbowl with a layer of rocks
- Fill it 1/3 full with potting mix
- Use the spoon to plant the succulents and cactus in the potting mix, adding more mix to create a landscape
- Set the scene by adding toys. Use a sprizter only when it gets very dry – do not over water!
- Watch your Toyarium come to life.
I would love to have my own “Toyarium” to put in the living room as decoration, except I would leave out the toys so that it was just a simple Tarium filled with beautiful succulents and cactus.
