Spruce up your garden with spray paint

Spruce up your garden with spray paint

One of the way’s I’ve added more color and interest to my window well garden is by using spray paint. On my post here I showed some wire fences I got in the dollar bins at Target. While I liked how they looked I thought they would be a little too dark for the window… Continue Reading

Propagating Succulents from Leaves in an Altoid Tin

Propagating Succulents from Leaves in an Altoid Tin

I mentioned about a month ago that I was propagating succulents in altoid tins while I was in Boston. This has actually worked out really well! The only plants that haven’t survived were the Kalanchoe Daigrmontiana but I think that is because I haven’t been watering them as much as I probably should. Continue Reading

Succulent Living Frame Update

Succulent Living Frame Update

I keep meaning to post an update on my succulent living frame to let you know what I’ve done with it but haven’t until now. Some good things and some not so good things have happened with it, so here is the story.  Continue Reading

Succulent Leaf Cuttings Mini Update

Succulent Leaf Cuttings Mini Update

So, a long long time ago I posted some photos of my succulent leaf cuttings and how much they had grown. They continue to get bigger and bigger. It really is amazing what these little plants can do! I went to my sister-in-law’s house last week where they have found a happy home while I’m… Continue Reading

Succulent Neglect Project Update

Succulent Neglect Project Update

If you remember, before I went to Boston I purchased a couple succulents and started the Succulent Neglect Project. I wanted to test them to see how much neglect these succulents and leaf cuttings could stand, at least to some extent. Well, last week I went back to Utah for work and checked up on… Continue Reading

Succulent Neglect Project

Succulent Neglect Project

I ended up buying a small Sedum Adolphi succulent before I left to give to my cousin. There were three in the container and only one fit in the pot I found to give her so I needed to figure out what to do with the other two. I decided I would put these succulents… Continue Reading

Succulents in Altoid Tins

Succulents in Altoid Tins

As I mentioned yesterday in my post about re-potting succulents, I am headed for Boston tomorrow for a few months. Naturally, all my succulents couldn’t come with me so my sister-in-law kindly offered to watch them while I am gone. However, because I’m obsessed, especially with propagating succulents, I decided I’d figure out a way… Continue Reading

Repotting Succulents

Repotting Succulents

Last week I re-potted all of my succulents. Why you may ask? Well, the first reason is that I am moving to Boston for a couple of months and wanted the plants to be easier to transport. Second? I felt like I needed to group some of the succulents differently. I didn’t re-pot everything but… Continue Reading

Plant a Succulent in a Log

Plant a Succulent in a Log

A while back I came up with this great idea to tun an old log in to a succulent planter. I knew I would need some special tools (which I didn’t have and didn’t want to purchase) so I called my Grandma. She has a wide variety of tools so we figured we could make… Continue Reading
