Succulents are a great way to add an earthy element and even a little color to a room--not to mention they are long-lasting! According to Succulently Urban owner Marialusia Kaprielian, succulent cuttings can live out of soil and without water for more than 5 weeks.
Here are her top 5 tips for creating a succulent centerpiece:
- Slate or Stone - Succulents can be simply laid atop flags of stone or slate with a little moss and maybe some wildflowers to add color and texture to the piece.
- Glass Vessels - Place a single succulent in a glass vessel with pebbles or gravel. Kaprielian's suggests a clipping of the hardy succulent, Graptopetaulm paraguayense.
- Terrarium - Get creative with your terrarium by adding colored sand. Sedums and sempervivums work great in small terrariums.
- Bouquet - For a more elegant look, pair succulents with your favorite flower of the season and place in a vase. Echeverias can be prepared on wires or skewers to create a "stem." Be sure to watch the video for tips on creating a succulent bouquet!
- Grapewood - Aeoniums, sempervivums and pachyveria are perfect choices to grace a stump or log with their plump leaves resting along side colorful deer moss.
