Hola, amigos! Welcome to Fickle Prickles - The online store where the weird and the wonderful of the plant world meets the funky and the unusual of the gift world!
Tutorial - Hanging Succulent Easter Gifts!
First of all - Happy, Happy Easter! We simply cannot believe it is that time of year already!
We came across this incredibly cute and inventive tutorial by Lisa Tilse that we just had to share - Easter gifts that include succulents (and not that evil but delicious chocolately goodness that goes straight to your thighs...)
Simply click on the photo above or here to go to the tutorial. There are many variations on this idea that you could try - You could place the egg in a egg cup if the word macrame scares you away, or you could simply place them in an egg carton... You could also use them not just as gifts but as decorations too!
These succulents can last several weeks in an egg shell before they will need to be potted up. Just remember to place them in a well lit area and to water them sparingly. Ultimately you could put any species of succulent in there, but we think the rosettes of a Sempervivum would look really cute, as would Sedums like rubrotinctum or dasyphyllum.
