The Easiest to Grow
This succulent is especially easy to care for because it's fake!
I shared them yesterday included in my St. Patty's Day Decor.
They look and feel just like the real thing...and no care what-so-ever!
I just stuck a few in some foam in a silver bowl, covered it with spanish moss and called it done.
Succulents look amazing in silver containers such as this mercury glass.
Lots of silver containers.
I've got several little silver containers I'd like to put succulents in and I think the faux variety
are the perfect choice as I really don't want soil and water in my silver.
Very nice in a birdcage too.
Another in mercury glass. It's very special...isn't it?
I added some succulents to the windowsill in my kitchen too.
These are also faux!
I bought this little long serving dish at Pier 1 recently.
I've had my eye on it for awhile. It's perfect for serving appetizers but I knew it would be
perfect as a tray to catch water overspill from plants growing on my windowsill in the kitchen.
I plan to put a few pots of herbs here....but...then I found these little pots of faux succulents
and thought...they'd do for now.
I actually think I might go back and get several more of these long serving dishes to put in other windows around the house.
How many times have I wished I could put an african violet in the window without worrying about
This little tray is just the thing.
Pretty and serviceable.
If you are looking for faux succulents by the stem, Hobby Lobby has lots of variety.
The best selection of real succulents I've seen was at Greenhouse Nursery in Norman, Oklahoma.
I saw lots there last summer. I don't know what their selection is at the moment but I'd bet they will
have plenty in a couple of months.
I really want to do some outside plantings of succulents this spring/summer.
I'll be making a trip to Greenhouse soon for sure.
Are you making all your outdoor garden plans?
Mine is going to start with a big clean up.
Lots of trimming to do and beds to clean out.
Since I had my sewer line repaired a large part of my backyard is red dirt now.
This means Franklin is getting daily baths.
He is not happy about this. He tolerates it well...but does not understand why he is being
singled out for baths.
The other dogs have the good sense to stay out of the red mud.
I just love em...in spite of having to give that Franklin a daily bath.
