Succulent Garden.

Tuesday, July 19, 2011

I never fully understood the obsession with succulents until this past weekend.  My sister, Katie, and I were strolling around an outdoor mall in Miami this weekend and saw succulent arrangements selling for $30+. I didn't want to spend this amount and immediately thought to just do it ourselves.  Quickly after, Katie and I were running all around Miami and picked up these perfect hanging candle holders from CB2 we'd seen endless times before.  From there we headed to Home Depot (in the pouring rain) and picked up gravel and an array of succulents.  The next day we got to work and arranged the succulents within the candle holders with dirt on the bottom and gravel on the top.  As you can imagine, the hardest part was arranging the cactus!  We successfully completed this project and only spent about $7 on each arrangement.  I would love to hang these somewhere and I absolutely cannot wait to do other succulent arrangements.  They are the perfect plant, both indoors and outside, that add life to a room and are easy to maintain.

Great idea! Perfect way to add a touch of green to the apartment without a major live plant.

LOVE. I'm been succulent obsessed for a while now. I tried planting some in deep, wide vases, but my terrariums didn't last longer than a few months. :( I used charcoal and everything (there's a design*sponge tutorial that recommends using it). I might just have to try, try again!

P.s. your redesign looks beautiful!!
