There are many ways to get creative with how they're displayed, with an unlimited number of possibilities.
You can put them in a pot, set them on the soil in your garden, add them to a bed of rocks, or even in your greenhouse - the sky is the limit so start brainstorming ! Go ahead and check out this tutorial so you can get started adding these cool hypertufa hands to your garden.
