Yesterday I found myself in a very decorative and creative mood so I decided I had to "make something"
Through all the internet research I quickly landed on a succulent wall because a moss wall is made of dead moss and I wanted something green and alive for our living room.
We had a few succulents in teeny pots in our living room already and I had seen some around that grew in the wild. Adding all those together I figured I had enough to fill a frame.
As you can see I still have some space left over but I have seen some growing around in peoples rock gardens so I might just go and ring to see if I can scrounge up some "baby succulents" or some leaves to grow my own as these seem to be very easy to grow once you have some of your own.
I of course went a little overboard and bought a big board and planks measuring 50cm x 75cm and created a really big box. in hindsight I guess its a bit to deep and a bit to big to hang up but it has to lay flat for a few weeks anyway so that all the roots can take hold.
Tools used for the succulent wall:
- wood for a box (do not go overboard like me)
- a frame to make it nicer if that is your style (still thinking about mine)
- chicken wire
- cactus or succulent earth
- gluegun (glue the bag to the box)
- plasic underground (as you can see my dog just finished her food so I "upcycled" the bag for a new purpose
lets see what the outcome is and if I can maybe put it upright on a chest in the house somewhere instead of hanging it on the wall (it has become way to heavy for that now)
But if these take hold and start growing I might use them as a breeding staple to get some more and try some smaller wall hanging decorations.
