Combination planters let you add color to even the smallest space, and succulents grow slowly enough that they won’t overtake the tight quarters. An eye-catching mix of succulents grows well together, needing the same care regime: little water, high light and a coarse, cactus-type soil mix. When you create an indoor container garden, make sure plants have similar light and water needs.
Incorporate succulents, such as Haworthia minima (left), a small evergreen plant with hard, fleshy blue-green leaves that are covered in white tubercles. It produces white flowers with pink tips. Blumz by JRDesigns, a floral and event design company, has placed it beside a potted cactus.
Your desktop doesn't have to be boring; A few elegant choices can dress up any display. Use a table lamp, like this lamp made of smoke glass and brass, in place of a traditional desk lamp. Pair it with succulents in a pretty planter, and you'll have something beautiful to look at, even when work is stressful.
This fun packing tape image transfer method is perfect for adding your Instagram photos to little flower pots! Take a laser-printed Instagram photo and firmly cover it
with packing tape, leaving a tape border around the edges of the image. Submerge the tape in water for a few minutes. Using your fingertips, gently roll the wet paper away from the back of the tape until it feels smooth. The ink will remain on the tape and the paper will wash away. Let dry completely. The tape will become sticky again; just stick your image to the front of your succulent pots!
When your succulents are complete fill a few empty planters with crumpled paper. Cover the paper with loose roving and arrange your succulents on top. You can hot glue them into place if you want them to be permanent, or just let them sit and rearrange them whenever you like.
