    Spoon in the cactus mix, following the same gentle slope. Unpot the plants. Begin planting from large to small and back to front, starting with the blue chalkstick, then the jeweled crowns, the stonecrop, and the echeveria. The chalkstick makes an interesting backdrop for the other rosette plants.

    Place in the twig for a nice accent. Use a small funnel to cover the cactus mix with the decorative gravel. Attach a length of twine to the teardrop and hang it in a window. Water with a spoon or a dropper, making sure to spread the water out evenly and that none sits at the bottom of the glass.
