Succulent Love

We stopped at Lowe's today for potting soil so we could plant our spinach and Swiss chard in the Earth Boxes. While we were there I became enamored with these little succulents they were selling for $3 each. It's my goal to have more plants indoors as well as out, so I transplanted three into a pretty pot for our living room. I love the varying green tones and shapes.It may not be the terrarium I keep talking about, but this little arrangement is so pleasing and easy-peasy. Hopefully I won't kill these little sweeties!
I'm really just longing for live green things. Next up, I want to do an arrangement of ferns under a bell jar, or perhaps a spider plant. These might be harder in dry conditions, so again, I'm welcoming any tips you might have!

i LOVE succulents- unfortunately, they don't always love minnesota. that was one of the best things about living in berkeley, ca- just about every plant in the world thrives there.

Beautiful!! I just love succulents. I have a porch full, but I will miss them when I move back to Canada!

I've recently gotten really into the subtle colors in succulents just like these. And they're hardy little things too -- since I occasionally forget and neglect them.

I am loving these teraniums and heading to Lowes today, hope they too have stock. Wish me luck and thanks for the inspiration.
