Last month I brought a few succulents home. I had big plans to put them in a vase of pebbles until I visited the garden store and they said that would surely kill the plants. I decided to keep them in their pots and surround them with sand here. The only problem was that one of the pots was too big for the vase and I had to take the plant out of the pot.
I wasn’t sure if the plants would live. I’ve always killed succulents in the past. I’m happy to say they have survived and are doing very well!
I’ve been watering them about a quarter cup split between the two plants each week. And I moved them to the bay window where they get the most sun. You can probably tell from the picture that one of them is looking much prettier than the other.
I still have a lot of sand leftover so I’m on the lookout for a larger glass vase that I can use and will start this experiment over. I’m happy this hasn’t been a complete failure. After all, the plants are still alive. If I can keep them healthy for a few more months I might purchase some more succulents. The nursery has so many fun options.
