Sadly, I have a very brown thumb for keeping succulents alive i  my home...poor lighting? Getting the water too much, too little? Not sure. So, after receiving crochet succulents from both endymion and craftylittlemonkey, I made a couple of my own to fill the void in this cool planter. Good news, they can't die! I even had an old brown square I'd crocheted ages ago to use as dirt!





Thanks for looking. (pattern from 5littlemonkeys.com)

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

craftylittlemonkey Maybe it is time for us to expand to full sized unkillable house plants. Smiley

These are fab! And a bit more realistic than turquoise ones.   Wink

I love how real they look in the photos. Great job! I definitely think my terrarium that sits on my desk at school will need to be filled with crocheted succulents... since I managed to kill just about all of the real ones almost immediately.
