Planting Succulents


Our house needed some greenery, so yesterday Sydney and I spent the afternoon planting. Syd loves flowers and gardens, but unfortunately all we can fit on our balcony is a small herb garden in a flower box. So she was so excited when I broke out the dirt and an assortment of containers from our china cabinet! Planting indoors is still lots of fun, actually more fun than outdoors when temps are inching close to 100! I also took her to the store and let her pick out the plants. Of course she was immediately drawn to all the cute little succulents!

I think she liked planting in the tea cup the best, especially since she decided her favorite plant would go in there.

The succulents in assorted containers are perfect grouped together as a centerpiece on a table….

Or separated and placed in different rooms around the house. And the best part is, they are easy to keep alive!

  1. my mother and I were just planting succulents today, she has a master green thumb. She has this aloe looking plant that neither of us can figure out what it is. upon searching online through photos we stumbled across your site with the photo containing the dark green aloe with white thorns/ nods on them. do you by any chance know what species or name that plant has? My grandmother wants some and my mothers plant hasn’t put out any little babies yet. thought i could be proactive and hunt it down and surprise both of them. Any help would be greatful and appreciated. Thanks in advance!

  3. I love succulents. They are so beautiful and easy to maintain. The creative containers you chose are wonderful. I am not surprised that your daughter saved the tea cup for her favorite plant. Thank you for linking to Artsy Play Wednesday on Capri + 3.

  4. I too have a center piece of succulents on my table. I think they are interesting to look at and a nice alternate to fresh flowers.
