  • Large glass jar with a lid
  • Potting soil
  • Pebbles
  • Small, indoor container plants (you can find these at your local hardware or garden store)
  • Water
  • Decorative elements like shells or dry moss


  1. Line the bottom of your jar with a layer of pebbles. Top this layer with potting soil.
  2. Place the small indoor plants in the soil. Add just enough water to make the soil damp but not soggy.
