Decorating with Succulents: I’m Lovin’ It


Succulents are such a great plant for indoors.  If you follow me on Pinterest, you may have noticed my recent fascination with them.   Succulents are easy to take care of, cheap, easily propagate, don’t need much water and come in tons of beautiful colors and textures. Perfect for those who don’t have a very green thumb 😉

Decorating with Succulents at TidyMom

I picked up this container at Target to fill with a variety of succulents for our family room.  I stopped by my favorite local nursery, Hillerman’s Nusery & Florist, and they helped me pick out just the right combination for my planter and suggested some gravel to fill in over the soil

The beauty of succulents is that they can handle full sun and they can live in the ground or a container, almost any kind of container!

I love how they look!

A fun thing about succulents, if you want more of one that you have, no need to head back to the nursery…… you can break off a piece of it and stick it into the ground or into a glass of water and it will sprout roots. Then plant it wherever you’d like! Easy Peasy!

The key’s to growing succulents:


Do NOT over WATER.


ENJOY them!

Succulents are the perfect indoor plants for those with busy hectic lives and a brown thumb! You can easily find them at your favorite nursery and big box hardware stores.

 I’d love to hear how you decorate with succulents!

    Happy Almost Weekend Cheryl! Thanks for hosting. you make it sound easy to keep a plant alive…I’m good with outdoor gardens, I’ve killed every indoor plant since the day I was married. :(

    I just love house plants…but I have the blackest thumb ever. Every single one dies. I have some succulents in my bedroom, and I had to laugh at your comment to neglect them. It’s a good thing these ones are hardy because they have been severely neglected. Thank you for hosting.

    Thanks for hosting! I love succulents too. I have been buying vintage measuring cups and bundt pans and planting succulents in them (because I do not kill succulents) for gifts!

    I love succulents, too. There’s such wide variety in the colors and textures of them. I haven’t had any in quite a few years, though. When we moved from our last home, I gave away the ones I had and never replaced them. I believe a trip to the nursery is overdue!

    I’ve loved the look of succulents for a long time and always wanted to try them, but didn’t know where to start. I’ll definitely have to give them a try now, I love how they add a pop of color to a house. I’m not sure if I have enough light in my house though, I’ll have to investigate and see. Thanks for sharing!

    I haven’t had any succulents since I was a kid. They are lovely though. I should green up my indoors a bit with some.

    I love house plants! I have them all over the house. I also know how to kill a few, but most of them do survive!! :) Thanks for hosting! I have included my Loaded Baked Potato Rounds.
    Have a wonderful weekend!

    I moved to AZ 3 years ago and have had to relearn gardening. I am gradually replacing all my outdoor planters with succulents because of their easy care. Amazing how many different varieties there are!

    I love the look of succulents, but our house gets SO much sun in the summer that we’ve had the windows treated tor reflect sunlight. As a result, every succulent I’ve ever tried to grow has died in the winter despite my best efforts. I’ll just have to admire yours instead!

    I love succulents, too! I have two big pots of them outside all year long. I never do a THING to them. 😉 My kind of plants!

    OMG, I am a huge lover of succulents. I have a regular garden outside but have been getting more and more into having succulents inside around the house. One of my favorite new succulents is string of peals, it’s an actual succulent vine that looks like it has little green peas strung along on it. It’s just beautiful, but poisonous to animals so I have to keep it up high where my cat can’t get to it.

    Succulents are so pretty in antique silver!
