I'm thinking about making a 3rd mini garden this summer that's kind of a homestead scene that has a tiny "veggie" garden with a few cute little rows, tiny scarecrow... thoughts/shared ideas/pics welcome!

Here's some little pots that decorate my bigger mini garden, some established for a while, some have a few new things added, some were just put together. The little Sedum bits haven't had a chance to take root yet, kind of this summers' before pics.

TYVM! Yes, they are wine corks. The blue paint is fading, but I kind of like that. It's looking less newly-contrived.

These little guys look better after a few weeks, the newer plants have had a chance to adjust & get going again, and there are a few new pots.

Kalanchoe marnieriana & a couple diff Rhipsalis.

Sedum kimnachii & a couple Sedeveria leaf-babies, a little snippet of Jade (Crassula 'Hobbit.')
Thumb of 2016-05-27/purpleinopp/7d45a7
K. marnieriana, Rhipsalis teres, Sedum sarmentosum, something else.
Thumb of 2016-05-27/purpleinopp/41f228
Echeveria harmsii, R. teres, S. sarmentosum.

Jade (C. 'Hobbit,' S. sarmentosum.)
Thumb of 2016-05-27/purpleinopp/a24725
Sempervivum or Jovibarba (not sure,) another mystery "something else," Sedum morganianum leaf babies (mama leaf is gone by now) and the other 2 babies are probably K. marnieriana but I'm not sure at that size.

A micro-Sedum that's a mystery to me, Graptosedum, Haworthia cooperi.

Micro pots. The red plants are jelly bean (Sedum rubrotinctum.)

Sedeveria leaf babies (in another wine cork.)

TYVM! The older ones are about 3 yrs old. I've snipped a few pieces off here'n'there but nothing has had to be repotted yet. The Sedum sarmentosum in the newer pots probably won't last long before it has to go. That can really get going.

Toying with the idea of wire holders for tiny pots, to stick in other pots & kind of hang above the plants in the main pot.

Love those ideas!

Did you make the pots? Or did you find cute little pots like that somewhere?

I can't take credit for the idea but glad you're enjoying being turned onto it! ;)

I propagated some babies from this snake plant leaf to use in mini while they're tiny. IDK how long that will be.

A new crop of tiny pots, various lids, painted. 2 of them are corks I already had but forgot to bring tiny pots in when it got really cold for 2 nights in Jan. & lost some plants. So I gave those a new coat of paint too & new plants. Not finished with these yet but it's what I could do yesterday.

Tiny homemade cement/cloth pots? Has anyone made any?

I'm really going to make some regular sized ones in a few weeks, finally, but it has occurred to me, why not make some micro's while I'm at it? If you already have, please share & inspire us!

I am in LOVE... you have to tell me how you care for them... I want to learn how to do this!

What are the conditions? sun exposure ? water? your geographic location? When you get this miniature is so easy to go wrong becasue everything equilabrates with the environment so quickly... I'm really really impressed and I'd love to know how you do it.

TY for the kind comments. It looks like I've done nothing to fulfill my dream of making micro cloth pots. Shame on me!

Turbo, I'm so much farther south than you are, the details of my mini can't be of as much use to you as you could get by asking for the experience of others in your climate/location/house-type situation. And I welcome your company in this discussion, but if you decide to ask your own questions, more people will see your questions in a new discussion, and your questions will get the separate attention they deserve.

Most of the plants I showed can survive outside here, in the right spot, but I don't think that would be the same where you are. You can also use the database here to find plants suitable for mini gardening, and select from those the ones that might be hardy where you are, if doing a permanently outside mini garden is your goal.
https://garden.org/plants/sear...

If you plan to bring inside for winter, look for those that don't need as much sun. Most of the plants suitable for mini gardening seem to be of the generally succulent type, so cactus/succulent forum is also a good place to ask for information about specific plants.

Thank you for reminding me weather is weather, and sometimes we're happier to admire from afar than struggle up close...

besides, since when do I need a reason to pull the cork out of a bottle of wine in addition to the fact there's wine inside?
