Succulent Hanging Planter...❥


I have decided to start a succulent collection....
Many years ago (and I'm talking about 25!) succulent and cacti were a popular garden plant in rock gardens.
And all those many years ago I had one.
But as time and trends changed it went...I gave them all away.
And the cacti garden was removed when the a puppy I was babysitting ended up with a face of prickles.  I remember the hours spent removing them....and I think my children remember many a time meeting up with a cactus too.
But I met a cute little sedum...
And my succulent love was rekindled.
That was a year ago....

It was a tiny little plant then...
but look at it now!
This is Sedum morganianum.
It's commonly called Donkey or burrows tail.  
It is a native plant to Mexico and Honduras.

Here in New Zealand we call it the jellybean plant.

Because one little jellybean like piece will grow...

...into this!  And then you have a brand new plant!

Where I live it grows on my covered and sheltered deck year round.
It is also commonly grown as an indoor houseplant.
This plant does require sun or bright light.
Keep out of wind and handle with care as the little nodule leaves will fall off if knocked.
It has clusters of star shaped rose pink flowers in the summer.
And the trails will grow up to 60cm in length.
Finally - do not overwater it.
And it will look fabulous all year!


And if you would like step by step instructions on how to make the rope hanger,
you'll find it HERE.

If you are curious about the mosaic...
that is an old mirror that I upcycled into a mosaic artwork.
Just another idea for your covered patio or deck!

  3. Wow I can use one of these jellybean plants because I'm always killing mine off so this will give it a chance to grow back.
