Find a great container with a lid, even a mason jar will work. Lay out your materials and get ready to get your hands dirty!
Spread a layer of charcoal on the bottom of your container.
Add some small stones or gravel for drainage.
Add your organic potting soil, deep enough for your plant's roots to spread out a little.
Gently loosen your plants from the pot by rolling the pot around in your fingers. Never pull by the plant to release it.
Place your plants, surround with soil and gently tamp down.
Water a little, cover and check in a few hours. Some condensation on the inside of the glass is normal. If you think you watered it too much, you can leave the lid off for a day or so.
Don't forget to add your personal touch!
