Found vases. Layers of gravel, charcoal, sand, soil, moss, small plants, pebbles, seashells, sea glass, figurines. Water with ice cubes infrequently.
Seltzer bottle, cut in half, holes poked, fishing line attached. Place dirt and coleus directly in planter or place another pot inside the bottle. These have lasted from September to March and the plants are still thriving!
