Let me start by saying that I planted these succulents for a centerpiece over naptime, which I always pray will mean 2 full hours of both children sleeping simultaneously but usually results in one falling asleep right as the other needs my boob in his mouth (again). My point is, this is a super easy project.
Succulents are awesome for a couple reasons:
They’re hearty – because they need to be watered about once a week, I *think* I can swing keeping them alive
They’re beautiful – I love the contrast between the soft and hard lines of different varieties next to each other
They’re versatile – I could put succulents in any room in my house and they would look fab
I chose three succulents, all different textures and heights but kept them in the same green color family. Then I picked up a rectangular planter at Target. IMPORTANT – when choosing a planter, make sure that there’s a hole in the bottom to ensure your new lil plants don’t drown. You will also need potting soil and something to cover the hole in the bottom of the planter. I used a tea bag but a coffee filter or little piece of mesh screen would work, too.
