HOME: succulents galore

I HEART SUCCULENTS.  Who couldn't love these luscious looking flower-like plants made up of plump leaves?  There are so many different ones to choose from and they're incredibly low maintenance (and low cost! cha-ching).  Being a plant lover, these are my favorite as I'm far from having a green thumb (more like a grim reaper thumb).

My collection has grown exponentially as of late, and I have them scattered all over my house.  From the window sills to the kitchen to the bathroom - they go great everywhere.  The more the merrier!

A couple of quick tips I've learned (at the cost of a few poor succulents):
1. Use cactus and succulent potting soil that is quick draining
2. Less is more when it comes to watering.  I use a spray bottle to avoid overwatering and give the plants a few sprays each week.


  1. I never knew these flowering species even existed. So thank you for this post. These look almost artificial, right? Such waxy and swollen leaves they have

  2. How wise you are to re use old cups and containers to transform them into beautiful pots for plants and containers for keeping different stuff on table.
