Plants - Succulents

We got a few really nice succulent plants this week - the stuff that looks like green peas are String of Pearls plants. An old fashioned plant that has found its way back in style with its clean, modern looks!

And some echeveria varieties potted up with some birch bark in glass cylinders - rustic modern. Echeverias are succulents which require direct sun, small pots, and sandy soil which drains well and dries out quickly. They are easily propagated by cuttings or removing the offsets (new plants that shoot out from the main plant). Let cuttings dry out for a week before placing on cactus type soil to prevent them from rotting.

I have to say, I am blown away by the luscious and unique choices you always have. For less than 15 dollars I can walk out of there with a bouquet that will blow away any host, mother in law or guest. Thank you, Sprout for being there on the corner of May and June and brightening up the West Side.
