One Leaf or Two?


A teacup garden is pretty much essential to any tea lover’s abode.

To make one, gather your supplies:

– succulents or other cacti
– soil
– pebbles
– tea cups, tea pots, or any small container such as vintage tins or stacking dolls


After filling your container with a handful of pebbles and gently separating your succulents, place 1 or 2 plants in each and add soil.

To care for your succulents, water sparingly, allowing the soil to dry out completely between waterings. Give them as much natural light as possible- an unhappy succulent is usually one that doesn’t have enough light!

Since Spring is clearly a little ways away, adding this greenery to my apartment was a great way to carry me through the rest of this crazy polar vortex winter we’ve been having.
