I’m using a dowel, just a simple little tool that we sharpened a little bit on the end so that it’s easier to make a hole for the plug to fit in. The plants that I’m using today are: Sedum adolphii ‘Golden Glow’, Sedum japonicum ‘Tokyo Sun’, and in the center when I’m finished you’ll see the Aeonium ‘Kiwi’. I was kind of going with a gold idea, maybe a Christmas-type star. These are mainly Soft Succulents I’m using today, so this is something that would not go outdoors during the winter in a cold climate, but it is excellent outdoors in the summer or they make great houseplants. You could certainly use a selection of hardy succulents for a display for outdoor all year-round. There are lots of succulents that are extremely hardy and can take very cold temperatures, so you could have them out all year long. As far as care tips go, you want to water when the moss is dry.
