I've never been very good at keeping indoor plants, they tend to die a long and slow death. I love having fresh flowers inside but as far as plants go, up until today I had only one lonely succulent occupying our home.
Now, as some of you long time readers may have worked out, I have a (ahem) bit of a thing for Crown Lynn crockery. In particular cups and saucers. I have a small pile of cups with no saucers so I thought that they would be perfect to house a some succulents in.
I put a few stones in the bottom of each cup and filled with potting mix and a succulent each. These need limited watering so they don't require a hole in the bottom for drainage.
I now have my three Crown Lynn cups potted up with a pretty succulent and they will sit quite happily I think on the Granny Cabinet.
I have more cups to fill and maybe the odd Teapot too.
How are you with indoor plants? Flourishing or flailing?
Any ideas for different types of planting "vessels"? I always liked the look of plants in old boots by the front door.
