    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.

    Hi.. I have been doing this for years with my tillandsia!! I do have a problem with troll skin staining! Some brands can be especially difficult when removing stains. Do you have any advice on how to clean really set-in stains? Thanks!

    Thank you! I have a troll doll I was trying to do this with, but it wasn’t working. I’d put holes on his feet for drainage. Going to try pea gravel.
