As in…a love for succulent plants. 🙂
I have a quick little project to show you today. I wanted to some low-maintenance small plants for our front porch table. Low maintenance because of my green thumb. Or my lack of a green thumb. In fact, my thumb is quite withered and yellow.
Sorry for that odd visual. my thumb is actually pretty normal. As far as I can tell.
So anyways, low-maintenance plants are my thing. While I was looking for a plant like this, I passed by the succulents and saw a sign talking about how easy it is to keep succulents alive. Sign me up! I came home these three guys for $1 each…
The one on the left is a Spekboom. Did you know that the Spekboom “can be 80% of the elephant’s diet”? Well nooow you do. And I thought the only animals I had to worry about were deer.
I was at a yard sale awhile ago and saw these three small dishes for $1. I didn’t know what I would use them for, but I knew they would be fun somewhere…
They looked like they would be a good size for the wee little plants…fun little holders for them.
Since there had to be some form of drainage, I drilled little holes in the bottom of the dishes.
And here they are in their new shiny containers.
At least I know if an elephant ever shows up, we have his appetizer taken care of. Good ol’ Spekboom to the rescue.
