Plant Along at Home Kit - DIY Cactus Bowl

Regular price $49.00 Sale

Plant along with us! Shipped anywhere in the United States, Plant Alongs are a fun and educational activity that will brighten your home (home office, anyone?) and can live for years to come.

This kit contains everything you need to create your own stylish desert cactus bowl, plus all the tips and tricks to succeed. Purchase your kit for shipping anywhere in the continental U.S., then join us on Instagram live on Friday, May 1st at 3:30 PM Pacific Time for an interactive potting experience with our staff -- from the comfort and safety of your home. Don't worry, the video will be available to view later if you can't join us live!


Each kit includes a selection of three small cacti that will look beautiful together. These plants are easy to care for as long as are given plenty of light and allowed to dry completely in between waterings.

Your cactus varieties may include:

  • Purple flowering cactus (Notocactus uebelmannianus)
  • Scarlet crown cactus (Notocactus haselbergii)
  • Toothpick cactus (Stetsonia coryne)
  • Mini Cholla cactus (Cylindropuntia)
  • Bunny ears cactus (Opuntia microdasys)
  • Bristle brush cactus (Mammillaria pilcayensis)
  • Dominos cactus (Echinopsis subdenudatum)
  • Mammillaria albilanata cactus

Note, we are not able to ship plants to Alaska or Hawaii. If you live in one of these states you may choose the option "Does not include plants" and complete the project with your choice of plants from your home state.


We will be potting into a sustainably made EcoForms Eco Bowl, with coordinating saucer. These pots are made from renewable grain fibers, in a facility that is 100% solar powered, and with delivery trucks which run entirely on bio-diesel. 

We mix and bag our custom cactus and succulent soil by hand in our shop in Tacoma, WA. The bag you'll receive contains enough soil for this project, with some left over. Bring your bag back into our shop for $1 refills for life!

You'll receive a bag of decorative gravel to sprinkle over the soil to create the perfect desert vibe.


This kit includes our selection of potting tools. We carefully chose only the most useful tools for potting small house plants - the same tools we use in the shop. No tiny rake or useless shovel here. Your tool kit will include a potting scoop, a fan brush, tweezers (because cactus) and a mini flat spade.

If you already have your own tools, you may select "Does not include tools".


Follow us on Instagram at @thefernseed for our Plant Along broadcast on Friday, May 1st at 3:30 PM, Pacific Time. This will be live via Instagram Live and free for all to view. Get all your potting questions answered by our experienced staff! Can't make the live show? Don't worry, the video will be saved to view at your convenience.


You'll have the opportunity to include a gift message at checkout.


Supplies are limited, don't wait!


Sorry, we can't ship plants to Alaska or Hawaii. You may select "Does not contain plants" if you would like to do the project with your own plants.
