Begin by planting your succulents in a small glass container with soil, horticultural charcoal and small pebbles. Position the small container into the center of the larger glass container. Then add the first color and layer of sand. Using a funnel, continue to add layers of sand, alternating the colors as you desire until reaching the top of the smaller container. To give some contrast to the sand, add talus to the top of the soil in the smaller container. The last step is to add some decorations on top of the sand, such as seashells, gems, stones or any other item you desire.
