I bought some succulents at the Pasadena Flea Market at the Rose Bowl on Mother’s Day (we had a fantastic time by the way… the place was HUGE!). These little lovelies were only a dollar each, which is awesome because they are typically $2.50-ish in stores around here. You can see the little cuties on Instagram. When I brought them home I knew that I wanted to plant them in some thrift store vases that my brother gave me when he moved. Planting succulents is pretty simple. I DO NOT have a green thumb. I repeat. I DO NOT have a green thumb, and I’ve managed to keep some alive for quite some time now.
Here are the thrift store vases I had. I had glass, green glass, and milk glass. I planned on placing them all outside on my patio in effort to make it more homey and an extension of my home.
When planting succulents you can opt to mix potting soil with some gravel. It’s easiest to just get down and dirty and mix it with your hands. Transfer the plants into your container with your newly mixed potting soil and water it.
For two of the containers, I sprinkled gravel on top to cover the soil.
They turned out quite nice!
