I received this surprise gift yesterday from my
grand-daughter. It was purchased at the 125th
Music Festival in Austin, Texas. There are tiny
cactus plants in each one and are intended to
be on a chain or ribbon and worn as a pendant.

How long should they stay in these tiny containers
and how much to water them? They are 1 1/2" x 1/2".

Yes, GDs are totally precious Louise.
And so are the tiny gifts she gave you.
I have never seen succulents done this way. How do you water them or get them out? I would think you'd have to be careful about the level of humidity, lest they start rotting. I can't get over how tiny they are.

I have no idea of how to care for them. They didn't come with
instructions. The little ring is silver colored and I have a silver
chain that I can thread through it.

She works in a lawyers office in Austin and is planning on
taking her LSAT in February and hopes to become a lawyer
if she is accepted. Her degree in art is from UT-SanMarcos.
She still paints and creates jewelry but is fascinated with the
law profession and the music scene in Austin. She plays guitar
and sings. Her guitar is personalized with her artistic design.
I'll get to see her this weekend for Thanksgiving.

What a very talented young woman she is. Maybe she knows what the care needs are for the tiny containers.
Let us know what you find out. Thumbs up

Is it possible they are not live plants. I bought tiny faux cacti from pier one for my window sill. They look real to me. :whistling:

Edited to add: scroll down a bit for the care instructions.

I would like for someone to tell me the way to leave
a 'thumbs up' for members who have blessed me
in my gardening. I have been given several thumbs
up and I see the symbol along the bottom of the reply
section. Do I just click on a person's name or where?

Is this similar to the rating system by the star in eBay?
I remember my rating being 258 (about) from people
who were pleased with our trades. I bought mostly
piano music and kaleidoscopes.

Click on the little green icon in the posts. Here you see them at the bottom right of each post. They will turn dark when you have left the thumbs up. It's that easy.
