Tiny Succulents in Tiny Baskets

I know succulents have become a bit cliché since they’ve overtaken Pinterest, but I’ve always loved them. I didn’t know what they were called at the time, but my grandma had hen and chicks growing on the rocks and bricks that lined her garden and I was fascinated by them. Little clusters of spiky plants growing with no soil! How do they do that?

When I spotted some tiny baskets at a local craft store, I knew some tiny succulents would be the perfect filler. A trip to East Austin Succulents to browse their endless greenhouse (and some handsome horticulturists) gave me plenty to choose from.

On the recommendation of the horticulturist, I lined the baskets with plastic bags that had a few holes for drainage. Besides that, this DIY didn’t involve much more than shopping.

    1. I’ve had pretty good luck with succulents. I’ve had one on my kitchen window sill for years that I always forget to water but somehow survives. East Austin Succulents is worth a browse if you’re in the area.
