This DIY project has been postponed for several months. One of the reasons was I had a hard time looking for sphagnum moss which is one of the materials needed to keep the plants in place. With the assistance of my daughter, we finally finished our pink bird cage planter. We planted succulents in it. My original idea is to put flowering plants like vietnam rose but I just worked with the available plants in my mini garden.
This is it!
We are planning to create another that will look like this one.
I am pretty satisfied with my window garden. While the idea of expanding urban green space at home is good because we still have a vacant spot at the rooftop, I am afraid that it might be difficult to maintain. So, I opted for smaller and easy-to-care house plants to maximize the small space.

Let’s proceed to the list. Just Google the names if you want to see how the plants look like.
- Golden Sedum
- Hens and Chicks (Echeveria elegans)
- Aloe Vera
- Burro’s Tail (Sedum morganianum)
- Zebra plant (Haworthia attenuata)
- Echeveria “Lady Aquarius”
- Jade Plant
- Flaming Katy (Kalanchoe blossfeldiana)
- Queen Victoria Agave
- Black Rose
I’m keeping my fingers crossed in completing the list. Happy Gardening!
I am currently in the mood for beautifying my indoor garden. In fact, I tried making a macrame hanging planter out of cloth strips last weekend. FYI, macrame is an art of knotting cord or string in patterns to make decorative articles.
This is my finished product:
If you are an urban gardener like and want to try other means to arrange your plants, here some suggestions for you
1. Hanging Planters

2. One Pot Herb / Flower Garden
(I am so inclined making this one, perfect for my empty large terracotta pot)
3. Vertical Box Planter
4. Windowsill Garden
5. Mason Jar Planters
This will be a very short post…
I worked in my tiny garden earlier this evening. Since I was not able to purchase a bromeliad yet, I decided to get few small plants for my container err dish garden or whatever they call it. All three plants were neatly arranged in a rectangular pot. Don’t worry I you can see the actual setup once I posted a photo of my new project. I also transferred the snake plant in a bigger pot.
Here is the most recent photos of my garden.
Notice the three “babies” beside the dish garden? they are my newest finds from my
favorite plant supplier. The photos now are much clearer, that’s why the dirt in the pots are visible which reminds me to clean it with a sponge later.
caladium heart, snake plant, and I think the one in the smallest pot is a money plant.
The hanging plants need to be trimmed already
My next project will involve succulents. My succulent dish garden before did not thrive maybe because of over-watering.
