Not only did I order terrarium plants online, but I also ordered succulents! I was looking for an excuse to buy a ton of succulents and I thought my birthday would be a great opportunity. :) I found a great family nursery on etsy called SANPEDROCACTUS. I decided to buy their package of 20 succulents and they arrived in perfect condition!
They arrived in little 2 inch pots and I transferred them to cute containers I found on clearance at Target. (They were in the $1 section but on clearance for 70% off so they were 30 cents each!)
I picked up some pebbles to fill in at the bottom to help with drainage then planted them with cactus soil. I took them to my little birthday get-together and decorated the space with them and then encouraged people to take them home at the end of the night.
I loved the way they looked arranged in a grid!
I did keep some for our house and any that had little growths, I cut them off and planted them in some of the little 2 inch pots. I hope to grow some of them into full plants!
If you're looking for bang for your buck, I would recommend buying them in bulk on etsy or ebay. They are so much cheaper than buying them individually at Home Depot or a nursery.
They make me so happy! I think I'm in danger of becoming a crazy plant lady!!
