Where every piece of junk has endless possibilities!
This is a gift I gave my mom for Mothers Day. It is amazingly simple and the neat thing is, if your mom doesn’t have a green thumb you can use fake succulents and it looks just a cool.
Which ones are real, which ones are fake? Can you tell the difference?
Place a few of the rocks on the bottom of the tea cup. this will help with some drainage. Then fill half way with potting soil. Remove the succulents from their containers and plant in the tea cup. Cover with a little more soil and some of the rocks. Water well immediately.
Simply cut your floral foam down to the right size for your tea cup. Cut the stems of the fake succulent to the right size. Place the succulents in the floral foam where you want them and cover the foam with the rocks.
That is really all there is to it.
In the end I went with fake succulents in all my tea cups because I didn’t feel right putting a living plant in such a small container, my real succulents went in terra cotta pots.
