Easy Succulent Garden (in a milkglass dish)

I love adding live plants to my home.  Love the color and decoration that they bring and also love that they are good for you in purifying the air.

So when I saw these succulents on clearance at Wal-mart, I snatched them up.  Succulents are very popular right now and I have been wanting to add some to my house.

I chose this milkglass dish that was one of my yard sale finds (picked up for $1 or less).

Mi-summer always leaves me longing for the beach, so I added some shells and starfish with my little succulent garden and a white lantern to a wicker tray I have on my coffee table.

I love the succulents matched together with the shells – they just work perfectly together.

    I too have decorated my bathroom with a beach theme. Love the colors and shells. I not really successful with plants of any kind. I do have a holiday cactus that I inherited from my mother in law. It has been in the family over 100 years! Still have it alive after 3 years…but it’s never bloomed. Let me know what I’m doing wrong!

    The milk glass looks great with the succulent! Anyone growing succulents should bear in mind that they need soil that drains well, such as potting soil mixed with sand. :)
