Last week at Lowe's, we happened upon a pretty great plant sale...most things were 50% off. I gravitated toward the succulents (or as I like to call them, babies) and was thrilled to see that they were included in the sale. They had some pretty cute, already-made planters with rocks and succulents inside, and I came very close to buying one of those...but then I decided (with some convincing) that it would be much more fun to buy plants and create my own little garden! My mom found a bowl for me at home and tonight I finally got to it.
I really had no plan when I was buying plants, so my selections perhaps weren't perfect for this project, but...whatever! It was my first try! I watched this video, which pretty much let me know that I could jam as many plants into the planter as I felt like.
My design isn't perfect, but I think it will make a nice, low-maintenance (perfect!) addition to my bedroom. :)
*I may have accidentally broken off quite a few "arms" (leaves? what are you supposed to call pieces of the succulent?) and am under the impression that I may be able to grow new plants from those...will be looking more into that tomorrow!
