I want to share two too cute succulent containers that Megan put together. They are amongst my favorites in the garden and holding up great.
The succulent container (center) has been outdoors since the beginning. It is filled with Pork and Beans, Sedum rubrotinctum, and one big Aeonium spp. We were given this plant as a cutting when we first started our garden and debated on possible species. Anybody know for certain? I am guessing either Aeonium schwarzkopf or Aeonium arboreum var atropurpureum.
Megan and I picked up the wooden box at a garage sale. It had a lot of character, latching lid, and was dirt cheap. To keep it from closing, I drilled in halfway a 1 inch screw near the hinge. Now the top will not close and the succulents are safe.
This succulent container is planted solely with Baby Toes, also known as Fenestraria rhopalophylla ssp. aurantiaca. I always want to give them a tickle to see if this succulent can laugh. Currently, it lives indoors by one of our West facing windows. The ceramic container is filled with a cactus soil mix, colorful rocks, and beach glass. In the very center, you can see the bud that eventually flowered.
