No planting required here. Just place the air plants on top of the colored glass.
Add the reading mermaid and you are done.
How to Take Care of Your Fairy Garden
The Mermaid Planter just requires a generous mist every week. Or you can lift them out of the glass and submerge the air plants in water for 10-15 minutes. Then make sure the water is not pooling in the center of the plant before you set it back in the glass.
This would be a great excuse to invite friends over and have a cocktail before you start. Then after you 'bottom up', rinse out the glass and start planting. What a great hostess gift this planter would make as well!
