If you are like my friend, and you don’t have the ability to keep a house plant alive, then you should try your hand at succulents.
Succulents only need water when you remember to give it to them! With their unusual shapes and sturdy leaves, they can become affordable pieces of art in your home. Nowadays there are very funky pots on the market, or you can even paint one yourself. (Click HERE to view a link to “40 different ways to paint your terracotta pots”.)
To buy funky pot planters, visit popandscott.com for the real designer look, or visit the online Etsy shops ShadeonShape or Kolbiewood. They are my favourites, and also make lovely gifts.
