Love the look of plants but can’t seem to keep them alive? Meet the succulent. These guys are hard to kill. They don’t need much water, at all. Plus they’re so pretty! The variety of succulents and cactuses make them ideal for mass groupings. Throw a bunch of different ones together and watch them form something eye catchingly beautiful! These DIY succulent and cactus gardens are great for indoors or outdoors in nice weather.
I love that you can put a bunch together for a cute display or have just one and it looks just as nice. These are really cute on a bookshelf or desk. I’ve found a lot of DIY ideas for succulents that would work in most homes.
Looking for live succulents? You can buy them online if you can’t find them locally.
