Materials: Driftwood pieces (natural, well-dried driftwood is lighter than average timber, and you won’t need to worry about pest problems). Look for pieces that will sit well on a flat surface. Succulents (Sedum, Echeveria, Crassula). I used 5cm pots (the smallest succulent container size available at a retail nursery); if you are using succulent cuttings, make sure the stems are at least 5cm long. Tillandsias (optional) Succulent and palm potting mix or natural compressed coconut husk (just add water to expand the block) Sphagnum moss Materials: Driftwood pieces (natural, well-dried driftwood is lighter than average timber, and you won’t need to worry about pest problems).
