Succulent City

Defense mechanisms. We all have them. The lack of plants in Arizona has surely forced me to be fascinated with succulents. When I lived in Kansas I could honestly care less about them. Or maybe that had more to do with the fact that I was a KID and obsessed with boys and makeup. The world may never know.

Well regardless of how it started, I love them now. They come in so many colors and shapes, and can be arranged in stunning ways. Here are some of my recent finds:

and then of course you have MY succulents:

In mah little owlie there. I actually separated the one that is in the right red pot above, and put half of it in the owl. Can I tell you that I about had a heart attack ripping the two sections apart? I don’t see how you can destroy a plant like that and still get them to grow afterward. But it seems to have worked.


My ever-so-talented Mother planted this cute little pot for me while she was here, using clippings from the yard and some that a friend brought over. They’re actually planted in a trash can that I had in college. Resourceful! I guess these aren’t all “succulents” as much as they are “cacti” but you get the point. They’re small.

You don’t have to live in the desert to keep succulents. I guess you can grow them in anything. I am not even going to attempt to tell you how to care for them based on the fact that I have only kept plants alive for a whopping 3 months now. But it appears that you have to water them. And give them sunlight. But not too much of either… or they will diiiieeee. That ambiguous enough for you?

That Martha Stewart succulent tower looks like a coral reef. I want to dance around it and sing the soundtrack to The Little Mermaid. So pretty. I love your little red pots! Are they grobals?
