You may recall. last month, that I tried my hand at growing succulents. I thought they would be a cinch since they don't need much care. Also, my confidence was high since I was able to grow orchids and most people have trouble with those. But, it was not meant to be. I may have over watered them because the soil kept looking so dry. Or maybe they didn't get enough sunlight since I didn't have them close to a window. But whatever the cause, I gave up on them.
Here they were in their glory. (May they rest in peace now.)
I decided that if they died, then I would simply replace them with fake ones. So, that is what I did! And let me tell you, I don't miss the live ones at all now.
Can you even tell a difference????? I know I can't!
The secret to making them look so real is using real clay pots with real soil. These succulents came from Hobby Lobby.
I just picked out a variety of different ones (they are sold individually) and brought them home.
I pulled out the dying ones, and plopped in the fake ones in the very same pots of dirt! Couldn't get any easier than that.
And behold, I have a great looking succulent garden in my kitchen now.
Only this time, they require nothing more than a little dusting every now and then. Talk about easy! Now, that's my kind of plant.
So, what do you think? Good thing I'm not afraid of fakes.
Thanks for stopping by.
