PLANT a mini desert gar­den

Some plants like it hot. Some need the cold. Some plants drink lots of wa­ter, and some use hardly any. Plants that like it dry are called XEROPHYTES.

Pups and cut­tings

- If you have suc­cu­lents grow­ing in your gar­den, they might have ‘pups’. These baby plants grow off the sides of their ‘mother plant’ and you can use them for your mini gar­den. Other suc­cu­lents will grow from a leaf or stem cut­ting. Let cut­tings dry out for about a week be­fore plant­ing them into pumice or sand.
