Plant Succulents in Wall Cracks

May 13th, 2012 –

Before – Meet India my foster dog! She goes to her new family tomorrow!
Some plants I already had and some found – the great thing about succulents is that is it easy to take cuttings. I have a pair of scissors in a pocket knife on my keys and I am not afraid to use them!
Here you can see how they’re tucked in! I put the rocks there just to unify the look. Hope it lasts!

I have seen crazier things with these shallow rooted plants, so we’ll see. I stuffed dirt down as far as it would go, but there’s a chance it will all fall out and the succulents won’t have enough in their root ball- I’ll update in a month!

Update after the summer: Some of these lived, and it was the smaller ones that were able to take shade from the bigger ones. I don’t believe this is the best summer¬†experiment.

These have really done well! I am so surprised , but then again that is the magic of succulents!
