There’s so much to love about succulents. You can get them with lacy leaves, spiny, green, white; leaves so plump you want to pinch them.
This was a super-easy project. I just filled some vases I already had with soil (and one giant margarita glass from T.J. Maxx for $7), and planted a variety of succulents from the hardware store. I love the terrarium effect, and it’s great for a windowsill or centerpiece, or on a credenza or mantel.
Now for the real truth, in the spirit of full disclosure: I took this photo a while ago. I totally killed all of these. I am NOT a green thumb, though would love to give this another go. For Round 2, I would get some serious input from a nursery, move them closer to a window, and water them less.
