I really LOVE succulents! They grow so easily & have beautiful colors & unique textures!

HOW TO CREATE SUCCULENT SEASHELLS:

Select smaller sized succulents for this project. Succulents like great drainage so provide some pebbles in the bottom of the shell, then fill with light, sandy soil.

Gently place the plant in the shell, and use a chopstick to arrange the soil around the roots.

Add a bit of water to the roots (avoid watering the leaves of these plants).

CARE:

These fleshy desert plants store water in their leaves, hence they need very little watering! (Although, be sure to provide them with water during the hot summer months.) They enjoy bright light, although some succulents do not like direct sunlight. If the plant begins to turn white, move to a bright area without direct sunlight.

(Succulent seashells would look GORGEOUS as a favor at a wedding, don't you think? Here is an example!)

Happy Gardening!
