Sand in a light layer will help filter the soil erosion and prevent the water from carrying it out the bottom of the container. Over the sand pour 1″ to 2″ of Vermiculite. Vermiculite is a material that absorbs water for the roots to access and helps keep them fed in between watering. Adding a layer of peat moss will supply nutrients. Fill the pot to 3″ from the top around the root ball of the plant you are securing in the container. Pack the soil lightly and water well.
