For the love of Succulents and Cacti

It’s been a bit, but wanted to chime in quickly on something unrelated to upcycling, diys, or crafting. I wanted to share my new collection that I started this late spring/early summer. I started collecting succulents and some cacti. I truly love these plants. They are really my kind of plant. They are quite resilient. You don’t have to pay attention to them much just water them every 2 weeks or so and that’s about it. On occasion, you would need to transplant them into a bigger pot to allow them to grow more. They are just perfect plants for my not so green thumbs me.

I’ve always loved these types of plants. They remind me of the desert which I love. I love hot dry heat. Perfect for me. I’ve always told myself that I would retire somewhere either in Arizona or New Mexico. That would be perfect for me. Or being by the beach is not too shabby either.

So here are some shots of my collection. I really love how it’s grown in the last month alone.

I just love them. They have such unique styles and looks. Now these are just some that I have, but I do have more. Below are ones that are my favorite succulents.

These are my favorite. I am so drawn to them. Love the colors. The cluster of succulents in a pot was a birthday gift to me from my mother in law. It is so pretty. I really enjoy it and have it on our outside patio table. It’s a great collection so far and I would love to add more.

I have some pictures of some cacti that I am adding to this group. Here they are.

These are so fun. I really want to get more. I love the spiky prickly ones. I can’t wait to see them grow.

So as you can see I have a great start to my collection. I am sure I will be adding more as I find them at my neighboring stores. Till then stay tuned and I will keep you posted.
