A DIY Project That Is PERFECT For Those Of Us WITHOUT A “Green Thumb!”

Some people have the most gorgeous gardens, perfect planters, and wonderful walkways that could be featured in any gardening magazine. For some reason, everything they touch tends to bloom and flourish without a problem…meanwhile I’m sitting here with my yellowing grass and shriveling bushes wondering what I could possibly be doing wrong! Plants just need water, sunlight, and dirt…right?

Well, you’re in luck! If you (like me) were not born with the magical “green thumb,” there are plants out there that won’t die, no matter how often you (I) forget to water them! Oops. Hooray!

They are called succulents, and they are incredible. Here are some below:

They come in a wide array of colors, shapes, and sizes…and the best thing of all is that they are just as beautiful to look at as a garden full of freshly bloomed flowers! It’s so exciting. While they do need a LOT of sunlight, they don’t need as much watering. The leaves will absorb water from the air around them…they water themselves!

Choose a cute tin or small pot to use. It’s easier to decide on a size for the pot once you know how big your succulent is, so choose carefully!1.13b1Pick out little stones, colored pebbles, or even pearls to accent your little plant! I love these to brighten up the office. They are low-maintenance and really bring a rustic cheer to the atmosphere!

Put the soil into the pot first and make sure that it is very moist. Add your succulent, and cover the soil with the stones or pebbles! It’s as easy as that! To water them, just spray the leaves or the soil with a spray bottle full of water. Don’t over-water them, either. Only water them once they are completely dry.

These are just too cute, and they will last a lot longer than traditional flowers. I love them because they are so easy to care for AND they are adorable! Start your mini indoor garden today!
