This is Attila’s cactus garden. It is so lovely. When I first saw the photos of his cactus garden, it’s like “oh my… this is so cute!” I especially love the eyes he added to the cacti, making these two little creatures so lively and adorable. And the little bee and butterfly that . . . → Read More: Attila’s Super Cute Cactus Garden
It is always encouraging when some friends and blog readers tell me how much they enjoy Gardening on Cloud 9 and get inspired to start growing some plants at home, or even better, shares with me the fun they have with the tabletop gardens they made.
A few days ago, I have received from Madeleine some photos of a Jurassic tabletop garden she has made. With rocks, sand, and tree barks, she has made a very fun, creative Jurassic park garden for her grandson. The tabletop garden is very well decorated, I especially like the little pebbles placed on the sandy ground as the colors and shapes make the whole picture more fun and interesting.

This is my tabletop garden – Doraemon Bonsai. Yes, it doesn’t look like anything close to those elegant oriental potted trees that we usually call as bonsai. But since bonsai is the art of recreating the beautiful scenery we find in nature in pots and trays, I really do think that this is a bonsai, for it is reliving a scene in the nature (of Doraemon’s world) Continue reading Tabletop Garden – Doraemon Bonsai
This moss garden – In the Wonderland – has bought me so much joy. From collecting moss in public park to choosing the right garden container, from making sand art in between the soil mix to cutting up my bracelet, necklaces and earrings, it has been an unexpectedly fun, dare-to-try experience. While I love my moss garden, it is definitely the process that I enjoyed the most.

Don’t these little shots of succulents look cute? We can either put a few of them together on a tabletop or scatter them around in the house, either way, will add a slice of nature and some refreshing colors to our homes and offices.
Actually my idea of making this set of four succulent gardens all started with a succulent that I bought in CitySuper 1.5 years ago . As time passed by, the white little rocks in the container began to turn greenish and look dirty (as shown in the photo on the right). Continue reading Tabletop Garden – A Shot of Succulent Please!
After experimenting with growing wheatgrass for about two weeks, I had a pretty good idea of how to grow the grass well in a container, and was more or less ready to make a cat grass tabletop garden as a birthday present for my cat loving friend. And because I wanted the cat grass in the container to be ready for the cats to snack on by the time I gave this garden to my friend, I needed to make this tabletop garden a week in advance.

This is the second Tabletop Garden – Double the Love that I have made, and it is now in Randon Art Workshop. While people can buy this tabletop garden in the workshop, to me, it is more for promotional purpose than for sales. Hopefully, the city dwellers, especially the younger generation, can find more fun with the green! Continue reading Tabletop Garden – Double the Love v2
This tabletop container garden is my gift to my mom for Mother’s Day this year. When I was designing this garden, I wanted it to be an easy-to-maintain garden that requires little time and attention from my busy mom. I wanted the garden to be something cool and fun, while the plants in the garden must be hardy enough to survive on little attention. I don’t want to get my mom discouraged because she thinks she kills the plants in the garden after a few weeks.

This plant that has some very round green leafs mounted in the center on a long stem is called Pilea Peperomioides. It is a plant native to the Yunnan province in the South of China. And due to its origin and the resemblance between its leafs and coins, this plant is also known as the Chinese money plant.

To match the name of this tabletop garden – In the Outer Space better, I have taken away the moss and covered the pots and soil with black stones instead.
Which one do you like more?
