    You did not mention adding any soil. You do need something besides gravels don't you?

    What kind of succulents do you use, will any do? Thanks

      Any should work, I usually pick smaller varieties so as they grow they don’t become to top heavy.

    I never had success growing succulents, so I will use the fake ones . Really like these!

      Thanks! I know how that goes, I have a few I’ve kept alive for years but quite a few more that didn’t make more than a couple months…

    I'm wishing I had saved my trolls. I will have to keep my eyes peeled to see if I can find any. They are just so cute!!! Thanks for sharing!
