Cuddle A Cactus
Planning a tiny cactus garden
Choose a shallow container with a lot of surface area. Trace the container onto a piece of paper and take it along, so you have the actual size in mind as you choose your prickly new pals. Don't feel you need to fill up every square inch of space. Leave plenty of room to create surfaces and textures with sand, gravel, rocks or ceramics. And the best part is that this garden will be very forgiving. I've always followed my grandmother's rule of thumb: only water the cactus garden when it rains in Texas.
