- carnivorous plants (used here: Venus flytrap, pitcher plants, sundew)
- wide, shallow container with no drainage hole
- dried Spanish moss
- water that's low in salts and minerals (rainwater is preferred; if not available, use distilled or reverse-osmosis water)
- fluorescent lights (if you're keeping indoors and don't have an atrium or sunroom)
- pinecones, pine needles, decorative objects (no alkaline materials)
Step 1: Plan the Layout
Place the plants, still in their pots, in the container and arrange them until you're pleased with the look.
Step 2: Water Your Garden
Add about two inches of water in the bottom of the container.
Step 3: Add Decorative Material
Place dried Spanish moss, pinecones and other items that will give your garden a boggy look.
Just in time for the scariest month of the year, some unusual, but very memorable poisonous, odoriferous, carnivorous plants.
