Teacup Succulents by Jess | Aug 28, 2010 | Decor, Handmade, Sustainability, thrift, vintage | 14 comments This is something I *have* to try! Perhaps I can steal borrow an old teacup from my mum and pop a few of our succulents in there? *** Want more Epheriell-y goodness? Subscribe to Epheriell Designs!

I have used pottery cassarole dishes to plant mini gardens in the past but I really do like the delicate look of the teacups. Thank you for sharing the idea, Log in to Reply Deb (Two Cheeky Monkeys) on August 28, 2010 at 5:47 pm Cute idea! You could just go to the op shop Jess, that way you won’t get in trouble with your mum, LOL. Log in to Reply Jessica on August 28, 2010 at 5:53 pm Haha Deb! Mum has a collection of mugs and teacups – but they’re all hidden away in the cupbord.. bet she’d neeeever notice ;D Log in to Reply Bri on August 28, 2010 at 6:34 pm They’re so super cute. I LOVE succulents, and I love vintage teacups – what a great combination! I must do it myself too! I assume though you’d need to drill a hole in the bottom.. so i won’t be using any “too good” cups 🙂 Log in to Reply Tasha Chawner on August 28, 2010 at 6:48 pm I have a gorgeous tea-cup that I was gifted – and if I didn’t have such a ‘black’ thumb I’d give it a try!!

Log in to Reply Drought Smart Plants on August 29, 2010 at 1:25 pm Love it – I’m off to the thrift store on Tuesday to look for some tea cups, and I have just the tiny succulents to put in them.

I used to collect teacups and now have a bunch of pretty ones that I never quite knew how to display, so this is the perfect solution for me – thanks! Log in to Reply Jessica on August 29, 2010 at 5:25 pm I managed to find one appropriate teacup at the flea market today – I’ll be off to the op-shop to find some more during the week! 😀 Log in to Reply leyla on September 1, 2010 at 9:18 am Even though I don’t have a green thumb, anyone should be able to keep succulents alive….which is why it’s so frustrating when they die. Ugh…. Log in to Reply shen at girlyspazms on September 8, 2010 at 6:33 am very cute! Now, I need to head over to the thrift store and see what I can find for containers. Succulents have been very popular lately. I love them. and actually made a blog entry about my gardening endevours too. http://girlyspazms.blogspot.com/2010/05/succulents.html That was almost 5 months ago, and they are still doing pretty well. Thanks for the cute idea! Log in to Reply Peggy on May 9, 2012 at 4:28 am pardon my dead brain, but do you rinse off the soil and use only the rocks to plant these? Log in to Reply Jess on May 9, 2012 at 8:11 am I didn’t, I just used soil as usual and popped rocks on the top for decoration! Log in to Reply Pam Dearborn-Gagliardo on February 9, 2015 at 8:39 am Wonder what to put in bottom of cup for drainage? Don’t see myself drilling holes. Love idea!
