Cactus Inspiration


Now that we are living in the southwest, I’ve been looking for some fun ways to plant succulents and mini cacti for the back patio. I’m just collection photos and cannot wait to plant some colorful plants!

Cactus + Aloe Plants

Not only have I managed to keep the plants in my planter alive for 1 month, but they are GROWING! The aloe plant is loving this new spot in the living room. He is reaching one of his “tentacles” toward the window.

Here was the planter back in August:

Air Plants

I’ve seen air plants EVERYWHERE lately. I am so intrigued and ready to purchase a few of these cute little plants for my own home now. They seem just easy enough – & pretty low maintenance. No dirt needed, just indirect light and water 2 times/week!

I love the larger/COLORFUL one and the 3 piece set that comes in the Sputnik shells. I think I’d paint the shells with Rust-Oleum GOLD to glam them up a bit! Find all of these air plants on sale today at Joss & Main.

Succulents Planted

Harper and I just got around to planting some succulents in our new Claude Planter. (BTW, it is on sale for $7.99 at West Elm!)

We put my ancient ALOE plant in the center. This plant is seriously impossible to kill. It sat on a sunny window ledge all summer. (I had forgotten that I had placed it there in June.) The plant was so overgrown and also grew 2 little baby aloe plants! We trimmed it down a lot before planting.

We also bought a cute yellow flowering cactus + 2 new succulent plants for the new planter. All of these plants are pretty much maintenance free. Now all that we need is a sunny window!

P.S. $8 planter + $10 for cactus & succulents. & recycled dirt from backyard!

Do you get really into plants in the summertime? I keep orchids in my dining room and a cactus in my kitchen year round, but have been trying to think of a cute way to grow herbs on my windowledge…

The precious, little eggling looks and feels like an extra large egg, but crack its top and discover a garden ready to grow! Cultivation is easy — seeds are already sown into eggling’s fortified peat mixture, just crack it’s top (by tapping on it with a spoon), water and place in bright spot. Plants grow for up to five months in the eggling, after which it can be planted directly in soil.

What do you think? Sounds like fun!
