So, by now we all know I am a bit crazy over plants-in fact I just fertilized all my indoor plants and trimmed their leaves. I think they have become my children!! Well, I guess that is just the way it is-so there is a new kid on the block and that is the Succulent!
Tip 2: Succulents prefer daytime temperatures between 70-85 and nighttime 50-55
They sat in this windowsill for a day or two, while I mulled over what exactly look I was going for.
Tip 3: Succulents should never be allowed to sit in water. Indications of over watering are soft and discolored leaves.
I felt white would really be a great way to compliment the green, gray and lavender hues of the succulents, so I got out one of my many cans of white spray paint…
Tip 4: Succulents that are under watered will stop growing and may have spots on their leaves and shed them.
After the pots had dried, I took my painted pots outside and added soil and Spanish moss-
Tip 5: Succulents should be planted in a fast draining mixture of soil. Perlite is recommended, I did not have any so I am using Spanish moss-
I gently tucked each succulent into the prepared soil and pot and sat them on the wrought iron table outside.
Tip 6: Fertilize as you would any plant during the Summer months, during the winter months do not fertilize.
I am not so sure I want to leave them outside, so I brought them inside and placed them on my grey desk.
Names of these Succulents: The two on each end are Echeveria ‘Perle Von Nurnberg’ Middle one Echeveria ‘Neon Breakers’
I am still undecided so I moved them to my gold Tea Cart.
What do you think?
