drooling over these ssssssuculent succulents

I spied this photo on Pinterest tonight. Can you believe how big these succulents are?  I love how sculptural they are, their weightiness. I have never seen anything like this in my life. Then again, living in Canada our succulents die off in the fall and regrow every spring, so they stay fairly small. It didn't occur to me that they could keep growing endlessly!  Gorgeous!

This photo is from the website of a succulent farm in California called Succulent Gardens. They grow over 400 varieties of succulents!

Succulent Gardens sells these succulent wall hanging kits for DIRT CHEAP. For a 12x12 kit that comes with the frame and over 100 cuttings, it's only $106. Whaaaat?   Crazy cheap, eh?  I have to do my research about how well these bad boys will overwinter inside the house.

This next one is a little weirdo...

bye for now...


  1. I'm into the wall ones and am thinking of DIYing one , I just wonder how you maintain it and if it's messy.

  2. Chloe, here's a video from the Succulent Gardens website that shows exactly how to put the cuttings into the frame. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=u4QksnFKPc0

    Apparently it's not messy if the roots are secure and the plants are close together. They hold in the dirt.
