You can use whichever succulents you choose. Just make sure that they are small enough for your sconce. These beauties were left over from another project of mine.

I purchased this sconce at Scott Antique Markets after falling in love with its dreamy shade of green.

Maintenance:
1. Add two ice cubes every two weeks to each plant to hydrate your plants.
2. Keep next to a sunny window.

This is the perfect container garden for inside your home. Succulents do not need a lot of room or a lot of water to grow. Just place it next to a sunny window and they will be super happy.

Ok, everyone…I have a little confession to make…

I am a container hoarder. I prefer the word “collector” though. My potting shed is full of containers and I’m sure that my husband would be happy to see them all go.

But look how happy they make me!

Shopping for new containers is one of my favorite things to do. It is also one of my favorite ways to break the rules. I call it, thinking outside the pot. There are so many containers out there that are just begging to be filled with flowers and it is our job to find them.
