Easy to grow and hard to kill…Indoor or out, the succulent has made a name for itself in home decor and we are loving it.
The succulent is a hearty plant known as the fat plant, and it retains water easily in arid climates or soil conditions. These plants are hard to kill even if you have a brown thumb. Since succulents live in extremes temperatures often times they end up lacking water. This can lead to a change in color. They tend to change to dull green color when there is a lack of sunlight. When they are well nourished and even shocked by climate change they will begin to blush; this changes the color from green to red, pink, orange, dark purple or black.
One of the many perks in having succulents in your home is how easy they are to grow. Succulents plants can blend into many different design styles indoors in home decor, or outdoor mixed in the yard or planters. They blend perfectly into a modern home, industrial or even traditional style home. For example a vertical succulent garden for the industrial modern abode…a space saving delight.
Outdoor succulent garden and planter ideas have no limits. These little beauties can grow basically anywhere and in anything. From broken pottery to old tree stumps the succulent brings new life to something forgotten, like this vintage bird cage. A pretty touch to a patio or outdoor garden.
Creating vertical walls of succulents for a patio or large empty outdoor wall will bring visual interest to that location. A simple frame can be filled with succulents and hung on the wall for a work of nature’s art.
With the vast variety of colors the succulents produce beautiful mosaics can be created in the outdoor garden. Whether horizontal or vertical the plants can be shaped along a pathway or climbing a retainer wall in patterns and shapes to add character and a serene feeling to your space.
Lining a walkway or patio in the more traditional way will always look clean and polished with succulents. Being low maintenance and very water friendly the succulent makes the ideal plant for a busy family that is environmentally conscious.
