Equipment

Ingredients

  • Glass Carafe with Cork Stopper
  • Aquatic or Semi-Aquatic Aquarium Plant (we used a Java Fern)
  • Aquarium Gravel
  • Purified Water

Instructions

  • Carefully slide a handful of rocks along the side of the glass to the bottom of your glass carafe. Add the plant and then gently slide more rocks down the sides over the plant's roots. If needed, gently use a wooden skewer or a chopstick to push the foliage around so that you can slide rocks down into the bottom without hitting the plant's delicate foliage.

  • Either partially or fully fill your carafe with purified water depending on whether your plant is semi-aquatic or aquatic.

  • Push your cork stopper into the carafe as tightly as you can.
  • Don't place in direct sunlight. Someplace with good, indirect light works best.¬†
