Who would have thought that the funny, cactus-like plants that my great-grandmother kept in her kitchen windowsill would be trendy? In my never-ending attempt to be stylish and current, (where did I leave my fanny pack anyway?) here’s my take on the succulent trend.
I love their texture and the fact that they thrive under my neglectful care. They’re the perfect houseplant for me.
I found my little beauties at Lowes but if your neighbor has them in their flower beds, ask if you can cut off a few pieces. They’re really easy to grow from cuttings.
How to grow succulents from cuttings
- Cut off a piece of the succulent plant about 2-3 inches long
- Let the cutting dry for a few days until a callous forms on the cut end.
- Plant in loose soil. Roots will grow from the calloused end.
