I’ve noticed lately that succulents are all the rage in DIY circles. DIY succulent wedding favors, succulent wreaths, succulent terrariums, succulent planter tables, succulents in little animals … I COULD go on and on, but I won’t.
So as part of my self imposed Pinterest Challenge, I decided to hop on the succulent bandwagon, if you will.
So, I started off in search of succulents. I had already collected a few vintage ceramic containers to put them in. While looking for ideas on Etsy, I found The Succulent Garden, run by Daniel in California. I was a bit skeptical about ordering plant cuttings from across the country, but after reading mostly positive reviews from a ton of people I ordered the 6 Succulent Cuttings Surprise for about $11.00. Considering that succulents cost between $4-5 each, I figured this was a good deal. I was suprised when they arrived only three days later in a cute little box. The 6 cuttings were each dipped in rooting hormone and wrapped in tissue, and came with instructions for planting. I also added a sweet chartreuse succulent I got from the Elephant’s Trunk this past weekend. Below is a pictorial review of how these cute little plant orphans became part of my DIY windowsill succulent garden. I guess you could say this DIY was a succ-cess!
