Hang the plant and admire your beautiful work!
Soak the plant for 10-15 minutes in water once a week (twice a week for ferns). Fill a buck with about 2 cups of water, place the string garden in the bucket and wait for it to absorb all of the water. Let the garden drain in a sink until it stops dripping before rehanging.
