Yesterday I received some succulents that I had ordered in February. I have never had succulents before so this is new to me, but I think they arrived looking wonderful. I had attended a class on terrarium making last summer at a nursery, but it wasn’t until 2 months ago that I really fell in love with these interesting plants. My whole plan was to make up a fancy terrarium. I couldn’t find a decent glass bowl at the department store, so I decided just to pot them up, at least for now. I found some nice glass terrariums online that I might order. Can these plants be moved around so much or will they get too stressed ? I’m not sure. I’m glad the order came with a care sheet, it helps a lot being new to succulents.
The two in the first photo are Echeveria haagi tolimaensis and Echeveria Harry Watson. The second photo has Echeveria Perle von Numberg, Anacampseros rufescens and Senecio mandraliscae.
Soil used for the succulents.
All potted up ! I’m very happy with the way they look. Valley Succulents has a large and unique collection of plants to choose from that I may just have to make another order and use those for the terrarium.
And, my daughter can’t stop feeling the plants, she likes the softness.
