Yes it is easy. Somewhat like a terrarium with no lid and there is no algae problem without lid. Just a good layer of pebbles which look nice before dirt, then you may add more pebbles on top layer. Looks pretty this way. Just don't over water.

With smaller seeds started off inside, it's best to broadcast them across a shallow tray with seed compost in it, because all you're doing is getting them to germinate and, once they've got 2 sets of leaves, pricking them out into small pots in ordinary potting compost individually, letting them develop good ...
Definitely transition it to soil. Your plant is using up the energy reserves in the large seed.

Use a free draining mix, and keep the plant well watered until it ...
I don't spend any great deal of effort on these, but one or two have landed where I see them.
