Lined with a little Spanish moss (also found at the thrift store) and some potting soil he was all ready for some succulents poked in at random. Planting succulents really is that easy. They don’t have a large root system, can be poked in just about anywhere and survive with very little water.
I just love the mix of color and texture in these fun-to-grow plants.
This is the day of planting.
And here he is today. Succulents grow quite fast, it’s only been a month. I can’t wait to see what he’ll look like by the end of the summer.
Both Costco and our local Fred Meyer carry large flats of assorted succulents so I not only had enough for this planter but had enough leftover to poke them into several pots around my yard.
I’ve been known to link up to the following great parties!!!
