Succulents for Mother's Day


I saw about doing these terrines with succulents for gifts. So I decided these would be my gifts for Mother's Day.

I went to Lowes to get some supplies for the project, then I was just about to head to a nursery for the succulents, when I spotted a cart full of clearance priced succulents. All mini for $1. (4 mini potted) and so I got a loot and decided I can save on this part that would have costed me so much. After all it is the thought that counts.

I headed to GoodWill to find several vessels.

I decided to glue these together so it can have some presence after I'm done.

These were also at a $1. each. The terra cotta pot alone would have cost more at some places.

This is such a cute glass like terra cotta pot, and I added a stand to it.

    How often you water them?

      They really don't require a lot of watering. You can mist them once in a while, or water them some, not a lot a couple times a month or less. They do need sunlight, but indirect sun. Mine in my back patio do so well on their own. I rarely even do anything at all. The indoor ones are the ones that require more care.
