It's a great time of the year to bring in a little touch of the garden. After cold weather or too much rain (or too little) in some parts of the country, wouldn't a little touch of living green add some warmth?!
You can grow succulents in any number of containers, and silver is a
really pretty choice. Complemented with white, the silver
adds a bit of reflective light and show offs the rich green.

Sitting on a dark gray-brown honed marble top,
the simple Mercury glass candle holders are the perfect
vessel for some small succulents.
You could use vintage silver pieces as well. Just be aware that
moss, dirt and plants actually touching the silver can damage it.
Old silver pieces used to be so inexpensive and easy to find
at Goodwill and thrift stores, but the prices have certainly changed
since blogs have come along. Some days you can
still get lucky and find a few silver pieces at a decent price.
Succulents thrive where other plants would simply
give up and turn brown. Put them near a sunny window, let them
have some breathing room, and do not over water them!
I planted them exactly the same as I showed in a previous post.

for the full instructions.
The only difference for these was that I lined the containers with some plastic
wrap, then insert the succulents which I had planted in small peat pots.
The plastic goes around the outside of the peat pots, so when you water,
it will keep the moisture away from the silver.
Even if you can't keep the plants alive and well for years, you should be able
to enjoy them for a few months. Or just before they begin to look a bit on the worn out side,
take them outside and bring in some of new succulents that have been outside instead.
Rotating the plants will help keep them all healthier.
See Y'All Soon~
