An indoor rock garden is an exciting garden theme to try. You not only get to choose what plants to put in your garden, but also what styles of rocks and stones to use.
Cacti and succulents are a natural fit for a rock garden, because they grow naturally in dry, rocky areas. Consider adding a water fountain as an additional feature. Running water makes a lovely, relaxing sound that will complement the rock garden nicely.
Most rock gardens will include succulents or cacti. It's important not to plant these in ordinary potting soil, because it will increase the risk that the roots will start rotting. Use a special succulent and cactus potting soil that contains a higher sand content and drains the water better.
Be careful collecting rocks without permission. There are rules that govern rock collecting in various parts of the world. Make sure you're aware of these so you don't get into trouble.
You can also include minerals in your rock garden to add some interesting colour and patterns. You can pick these up at craft markets and shows. They come in all shapes and sizes and can be absolutely magnificent!Return from Indoor Rock Garden to Garden Themes
