Hi, this is Yolanda Vanveen on behalf of Expert Village. In this series we're going to talk about how to make your house plants stylish. One of the first things you can do to add a little zip to your plants is to just add some rocks to them. This is a cactus and instead of just putting in a simple pot I have a beautiful decorated top, beautiful colors. But it's the stone that add so much excitement to this plant. It's made up slate or agits and they are just cut into little pieces and they both have a larger stone in the middle. So it almost looks like a little zin garden right in planet. That is one easy thing you can do with rocks. This is just a very small container but we have a little bit of an excitement to it by adding a little bit of purple rocks to it. It kind of highlights the plant that way so it looks like it's an oasis, this is beautiful. You can use marbles on the top of the house plants just like we use rocks. But I love using my marbles in my vases and forcing my bulbs on the top so this is so simple. I have a vase in some marbles and I put a daffodil in there and the water is just to the bottom of the bulb. Here we have a beautiful house plant. Those are just a few ways that you can use rocks, in the next segment we'll talk about using moss and likings.
