I prefer to buy my succulents and sphagnum moss at the local greenhouse. I feel that the plants are healthy and I am supporting local. But they are readily available at most stores with a garden section as well.
Framed Succulent Planter
Using chicken wire, an old frame, fresh succulents and sphagnum moss I created this one of a kind planter that can be hung or propped up to be displayed!
So cute and easy!
1. Take the back off of your frame.
2. Attach chicken wire to the inside edge using a staple gun.
3. After thoroughly soaking your sphagnum moss in water, squeeze it out and fill your open chicken-wire frame.
4. Attach a cut-to-size piece of plastic to hold the wet moss securely in place.
5. Reattach the back piece of the frame.
6. Slowly begin adding your succulents in the front, through the wire by first making a hole in the moss and carefully placing the roots of the succulent into the premade hole.
7. Secure each succulent to the chicken wire with a small strip of wire.
That's it! Hang or prop your Succulent Frame for display and enjoy!
