Florals 07 // Succulents and Terrariums

For our September collaboration, Lauren and Rachel (my dear friends & the lovely ladies of Sweet Root Village) and I decided to dabble in terrariums. I’d been wanting to plant a terrarium for months, and when Lauren visited Philly for the weekend and picked up these terrariums, it kinda sealed the deal. How beautiful are those ceramic bases? I need to figure out a way to DIY them!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Planting
a terrarium was easier than I’d imagined. First we decided which plants we wanted in each container.
Then we layered small stones and dirt, and buried the plants in their
new home. Gave them a little water, and covered them with their glass
roof. Now, the only challenge will
be keeping them alive and thriving…somehow, I manage to kill even
succulents.

    I think I found my next DIY project. We had a major dry spell in Tennessee and my garden has withered down, so perhaps focusing on indoor foliage is best!

    Hope you are well!!

    My favourite thing about succulents…the name. It's one of those words I like to repeat under my breath a few times…succulents…

    Beautiful post. I need to work on my green thumb.

    These are absolutely beautiful! Thanks for the encouragement that they were easier than you though – these things always sound so messy to me, and then I wonder if it's all going to be worth it or if they're just going to die on me in a couple of weeks. Are yours still hanging in there?

    I need to do this pronto! I have so many succulents sitting in their plastic containers, they keep drying out. These little containers look so nice!
