I planted this little guy in a Dollar Store jar with some pea gravel, soil, and aquarium sand. A year later, still thriving!
Get funky. I planted this succulent in some gravel and soil in a birdbath. Just be sure to avoid extreme temps and don't let it gather too much water if you do this outside.

Glass domes and terrariums are showstoppers when filled with succulents and mosses. This dome from World Market would look great with succulents nestled inside.

      @Jackie You bet. Just don't overwater. Some succulents are low growing, but if you look at my repurposed container garden - and specifically the pipe box - you will see a succulent that grows tall (I don't know it's name, unfortunately).

    I love succulents, but can't have them inside as I have 5 rescued cats and they tend to eat plants. So I found some artificial ones at Dollar Tree store. They are lovely in a basket that I bought at the thrift store at which I volunteer. I am now going to "plant" some miniature succulents in the bottom of an old oil lamp with moss and small rocks.
