Martha Stewart Living, June 2012
Sprinkle an inch of cactus soil in a clean glass bottle.
Divide the succulents into single-stem plantlets, each with roots.
Using chopsticks, place the plantlets in the bottle one at a time. Use the chopsticks again to nestle each plantlet into the soil.
Once the plants are situated, keep them indoors and out of direct sunlight. These desert plants require only a drop of water every two weeks or so.
Clean glass bottle
It's easy to see why the popularity of succulents has skyrocketed in recent years. The plants look modern and require little maintenance -- just several hours of sun and not too much water. To showcase their beauty at home, go beyond the terra-cotta pot with this display idea.
