Cactus makes very good tabletop gardens. There are many species of cacti, some with outrageous colors, some with small yet flashy flowers, and some with weird shapes and sizes. We can use cactus to make a very big tabletop garden crammed with various types of cacti, or we can use some baby cacti to make a petit tabletop garden as small as a coffee cup.
Ideas of cactus garden are limitless. Just be creative and give it a try. I guarantee that you will find a lot of fun in making tabletop gardens with cactus too!
I went shopping in the morning and got myself 8 pots of cacti. There were so many different species of cacti in the market. Many of them were very beautiful, with pretty flowers, flashy colors, funny shapes and sizes. If I didn’t make any effort in stopping myself from buying more, I probably would end up with many more cacti than what I have now.
Before actually starting to plant any cactus into my garden, I tried to get a better idea of the garden layout first. Since my container garden would be viewed from the front, taller plants should go in the back.
Phallic cactus – The phallic shape of this cactus didn’t hit me until I brought the cactus home and got the plant out from its pot… haha
Originally, I wanted to cover my cactus tabletop garden with a layer of small, off-white stones. But since I couldn’t find any on hand, I used some bigger stones instead. The tabletop garden actually looks pretty cool with these big stones.
