Honor the sun-loving, drought-tolerant nature of these tiny cactus relatives in mini desert or beach landscapes. Conceal their pots under sand adorned with stones, coral, starfish or shells inside glass vases and bowls.

I remember when this was the new rage. It is a great idea & I want to get another fish bowl going soon. Trudy (water lettuce, peace lily, spider plants & plain philodendron ivies make good water gardens)
