  1. Thanks for these great ideas to pot succulents. I have just started growing them. I live in the tropics, West Africa. Always looking out for new ones.

  2. The opaque containers of anyone’s choice are my favorite way to plant succulants inside over winter since they are so cute in the mason jars, w/ color!, or little colorful terra cota pots and tea cups! Less mess with these than in clear glass containers and we don’t need to see the soil and underneath as much as the sweet plants and holders!

    1. Oh hey fellow desert dweller! We love it here but you’re staying cooler than us so that’s a perk to our triple temps in April! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. I love succulents and so badly wanted them to be apart of my wedding but couldn’t find a florist that offered them! These are adorable, maybe since I couldn’t have them at our wedding we can just have them at home. Thanks for this post!

  4. Love you ideas. Have some succulent plants that need to find a new home and now they have found several just waiting to be used. Thanks loads.
