Sweet, Sweet, Succulent Wagon

It’s hard to believe it’s been over ten years since I first jammed some extra succulent cuttings in a wagon we snagged at a garage sale for super cheap, or maybe even nabbed it off the street I don’t remember. I’m not going to make you look at the boring picture of it with holes […]

Driftwood Succulent Centerpieces

Back February 2016 I experimented with chunks of driftwood, succulent cuttings from around the yard and sphagnum moss. Our friends Neal and Tina were going to be getting married that May and we volunteered to do flowers and decorations for their rustic redwoods wedding in Felton.    Matti did the tricky work of screwing the driftwood together based on […]

Best Indoor Succulents

I’m not one to usually post other people’s stuff, but when Uncommon Goods asked me if I’d post their indoor succulent infographic I checked it out and it’s legit. I’ve also been a huge fan of Uncommon Goods and their cool stuff for many years. Above is a little view of my strange indoor collection that sits on our […]

Succulents in the Gutter

Originally posted: October 20, 2016Update: the gutters now have carnivores, begonias, oxalis  and bromeliads. It’s still a spider web party back there.  A few months back I begged Matti to build me gutter gardens, so I could produce mass quantities of strawberries, lettuce and other edibles. As soon as summer (the rain free time here SF) […]

Tim’s Tillandsias and Lithops

Yesterday I blogged about Tim’s rad butterfly world, but check out his sweet deck greenhouse of Tillandsia insanity! Not sure what this guy is, but it’s popping a massive flower. The butt cheeks of the plant world: Lithops. They’re fun, but don’t water them until they really look like they need it. Lithops are relatively easy to […]

Succulent Container Madness!

I’ll shove a succulent in almost anything, whether it be a grill that nobody’s used for years, or an old wagon I picked up for five bucks at a garage sale.  The possibilities are endless! First off,  I want you to know that in many cases these are not permanent plantings (this is especially true […]

Crested Succulents

Originally posted: November 28, 2011 We’re starting to get a sweet collection of cresting succulents these days. Check out this Graptoveria ‘Fred Ives’. Good color and adds a lot of punch amongst the green and gray succulents. Parents of this cultivar are Graptopetalum paraguayense and Echeveria gibbiflora. Crazy how some plants can cross breed between genera. I think this […]

Driftwood King and Kid

It’s hard to believe we first blogged about driftwood back in September of 2011. We just got back from a trip to Mendocino, so we’ve added a few new pics to the old post including our driftwood kid.  Mendocino rocks in so many ways, but its creative uses of driftwood push it over the edge […]
