Succulents aren’t just for desert climates — they can make a naturally gorgeous statement in any home or garden.
They’re inexpensive, available year-round, and have many uses. The trio in the raku serving piece are a niche counterpoint to the short flowers in the vase behind them. Scale is the key to success when it comes to using succulents.
Don’t be intimated to cut off the roots of these echiveras. Rootless, echiveras can last indoors for months at a time and help soften any tabletop as well as give a contemporary twist to your accessories.
Here is what you’ll need:
-Enough 2 to 3-inch specimens to fill your container. We used three echiverias with bloom spikes.
Just remove the plants from the pots, being careful not to bruise the bottom foliage. Shake off potting soil.
Then using shears or sharp scissors, cut the roots off flush with the bottom row of leaves on the plant.
Each should then rest on a level surface.
You won’t need soil or water in the tray. All you have to do is mist well every few days and enjoy!
