I have always been a fan of both as they are long lasting and more importantly hard to kill unlike the elusive orchid plants which no matter what I do I manage to kill.
I love plants in my home, they add a warmth to a room I find and are cheaper than buying flowers every single week. There are many different places and ways you can incorporate cacti and succulents in your home. Here are some of my tips...
01 When buying your cacti and succulents opt for different types, in various shapes, sizes and textures this make it more interesting to group pots together or plant more than one in a pot.
02 Use specialist soil from a garden centre specific to replant your cacti, it has the best drainage for your plants which do not like to be over watered.
03 Make sure to place your plants in a sunny spot, they can look great scattered along your mantelpiece, placed on top of a pile of books (like this image on my instagram) or on a windowsill.
Another great tip is to plant your cacti or succulents (how many times have I used those words!) out in different containers. I used terracotta pots that I painted with duck egg blue paint, a glass cube vase and oversized tea cup. You can literally use anything, a spray painted tin can, an old boot (think WallE) or maybe old vintage metal storage tins.
And voila pretty plants that are oh so fashionable and look great anywhere. :)
Hope you guys liked this little post, Im gonna try and do more room tours, diys and decorating tips on the blog & make them a more regular thing.
