succulent planters/terrariums

Post by blennieluvr on Mon Feb 10, 2014 4:11 pm

As requested, here are some terrarium pics.  Most of these, I just threw in containers for the winter until I get more stuff to make them more cool and unique.  The orange ashtray one I gave to a friend for a gift.  Smile 









Right now, I hope to sell a few of them to help raise money for my bike ride for MS which I plan to do again this summer.  We'll see if anyone actually wants to buy any.  If not, they're fun to work on anyway.  My biggest obstacle is finding low cost containers so keep your eye out all you garage salers!  Smile

I think they are cute. Do you look at Goodwill? They have two spots that they keep glass like that.

I haven't looked at Goodwill but that's a great idea.  I can stop in there before and/or after looking in on the HSC tank!  LOL

I totally missed these, they are adorable! I'm so bad at plants, are these easy stuff? I could put a couple on top of the piranha tank, there's light and most important, my cat doesn't go there.

They're pretty easy. The main thing is not watering too much. Maybe I can bring some to the swap. lol

They are very easy to keep. The less water the better. You can even just mist them heavily instead of watering. If the leaves dry up they need more water. If you find tiny little cattle skulls in the sand around them, then you REALLY need to water. Another great advantage is that they attract Jackalopes, and any that miss the edge of the bowl, will feed the pirahnas.
Cammie's are nice.

I know I have a little glass cube and a bowl, old betta stuff that look like it would work for you, if I remember I will bring them to the swap. And yes please save me 2-3 small ones.

I have small ones that are only 3" but I'm guessing you want something a tad bigger. I'll try to bring a few to the swap and you can pick.
