Nicole’s Crazy Succulent Project

Saturday morning at a garage sale, Nicole discovered two of the most gnarly succulent plants imaginable – paying $3 for each of them.

Carefully cutting them up and replanting, it took her 3 tries, 2 days and a total of 7 hours to replant these guys. Check out the process pics:

Taking apart the larger plant took careful cutting. 

Close up of the roots. They grew crazy directions, which is why it took hours to replant them.

Doing this in the over 100 degree heat only serves to prove that the “weird plant lady” moniker is slowly approaching.

Many pots of succulents later. The bread tray planters are for cultivating more in the kitchen, the little pots are for gifts and the big pot is for the balcony.

Oh, and one last thing to note: this is the first project Nicole has completed solo… so, round of applause here people.
