The big idea: “DIY” succulent wedding favors doubling as place cards.
The specs: propagate succulents; create, assemble, find tiny planters; grow 90 by August then let love grow.
Suggestions, encouragement, and random facts welcome!
First step, as always; research. I’ve scrolled past some Pinterest posts regarding succulent propagation and care, the information was out there. Turns out, multiplying your succulents is (supposedly) really easy! Simply pluck leaves, lay them on dirt, spray with water, and wait.
I had one very specific obstacle to overcome, the cats. The succulents do best in a low, flat tray of dirt with lots of indirect sunlight. Open tops aren’t exactly an option with curious paws about, so I bought shallow Tupperware and cut out several openings on top; thus deterring said paws while letting in sunlight.
I started these plants two weeks ago, I may be seeing roots but it’s hard to tell, one consistent tip I learned in my Pinterest research: patience.
