Design Sponge is a blog I visit regularly
and I got really excited when the book,
Design Sponge at Home, came out.
I perused it immediately and even
attended the book party!
I just had to try out the crafts in the
DIY Projects section.
One of the projects is making your own terrarium.
If you recall, I made my own TADA! terrarium
using blah jars & bottles earlier this year.
The book suggests using ferns and succulents. I have never tried planting succulents. I greatly considered them because they are fairly easy to maintain. So instead of a terrarium, I'm planting them in these ceramic pots:
I use them for growing herbs in the summer, but they're
empty & in storage the rest of the year.
So here I am, trying to grow succulents.
I'm starting off with a Jade plant that I
TADA! Just the right amount of
green I need indoors.
Here's how I planted it:
My jade plant fresh from the market
I transferred it into my ceramic pot
Add some moisture
Then top it off with some moss and
white pebbles from Sprout Home.
I certainly hope it lasts throughout
the winter because something green
and alive helps chase the winter
If you have any tips on growing
succulents, please send them my way.
