I was originally going to name this post 'Artificial Succulent Planting' - but that really doesn't sound the most appealing to start off a blog post. Basically, succulent means 'a plant having thick fleshy leaves or stems adapted to storing water' - so a plant similar to the cacti family.
I have recently developed a habit of changing my room around an awful lot and rearranging things. Considering my room is very small, this is not the easiest challenge but I've been inspired by browsing through tumblr and pinterest.For example, only the other day I took my wooden bedside table out of my room and decided to use one of my many mountains of magazines as a new 'bedside table' and put my lamp on top. Making more space for me and also because I just feel like a proud Mother when I look at my magazines... I'll post photo's of this soon but I'm still in the process of perfecting it all :)
Anyway back to the plants, I bought these lovely mini artificial succulent plants not long ago for my windowsill - as before I just had a few candles and figured I needed to replace my candles with something more summery (the candles can come back out in the Winter). They came in a set of 3, with each plant being different and sitting on a bed of pebbles and sand.
They just look really pretty and a reasonable price of £7 from Sainsbury's! :)
Coincidently, I went to a Garden Centre with my Mom today and decided to buy a real succulent! It was only £1.99 and is called 'Haworthia Attenuata'. I'm looking forward to it growing, even if it does look so cute in its teeny pot! Also potentially buying more so I can plant them in a little group to form a mini succulent garden. I am going to hopefully try and find a glass pot similar to the artificial ones above to plant it in too.
