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
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!

Despite of the improved air circulation, the damp and rainy weather in the past . . . → Read More: Cat Grass Day 21 – Mold Problem Solved

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.

We know that good drainage is the key to healthy plants, but the containers that we find most attractive are often the ones without drainage holes. So, to broaden my choices of containers, I decided to go ahead and try to drill drainage holes in the containers by myself.
Because this was my first time drilling drainage holes, I chose a wooden Japanese bowl as my container for I knew that it would be much easier to drill holes on wood than on glass. And as expected, this was so easy.
