Thanks for watching and check out our other videos!

Here's what you will need to complete this project at home:

- Flower pot,

- Bucket that will fit inside the pot

- Cheesecloth (enough to fit over the top of the bucket with a little to spare)

- An empty 1 gallon nursery pot

- Scissors

- Fishing line/string

- Small fountain pump with tubing (enough tubing to attach to pump and rise above the pot several inches)

- Rocks- ranging from small to large

- Soil

- Plants

- Optional: branches, or other decorative items.

A couple of quick tips: 1. Make sure your pump works before you begin the project! 2.) Do this project in the spot you would like it to stay when its finished- it gets quite heavy when it is full of rocks, water, and soil!, 3.) Make sure that the tubing is back far enough when the water is running so that it doesn't spill out toward the front of the bucket or else all the water will run out and it can harm or break your pump. You also will want to make sure that none of the rocks wick water out toward the edges- this will also cause water loss.
