decorating with succulents

Succulents. You plant them once, they look cute always and you water them never. They like bright light and watering every now and then, allowing the soil to dry in between watering. Boom. Done. Consider yourself green thumbed. I love them.

The best thing about succulents is they can look good in anything and anywhere. Plant them in a teacup, glass tumbler, small votive or even a mason jar. Add to a bookshelf, next to your kitchen sink, on your bedroom windowsill or on top of the entertainment center. Whatever the canister and wherever the placement, a succulent can help add a green element to a space with little to no maintenance. 

Be sure to plant them in either potting soil specifically for succulents or a 50/50 mixture of regular potting soil and perlite. After that, it's only a matter of finding the perfect planter! 

Here are some ideas.
