I recently made another purchase of succulents online. I’ve been seeing a lot of living wreaths lately and have been wanting a beautiful wreath to go on our front door, so I thought, why not? I opted to get my cuttings from Daniel’s Specialty Nursery. He seems to have the most variety of color and texture and I want my wreath to be amazing.
Well, let me tell you I was not at all disappointed when these lovely succulent cuttings arrived. As I carefully pulled them out of the box I was almost giddy! I really am addicted to these things… Anyway, I kept seeing more and more stunning colors and textures. I am so impressed with the variety! I can’t wait to get this wreath started!
I know there are a lot of different colors of succulents out there, but I had almost forgotten until the cuttings arrived. My plants have all gone back to their natural green over the winter because they haven’t had quite enough light. But, I know once the weather warms up and they get more sun they will be colorful too. If you recall, I ordered cuttings from Daniel almost a year ago and those were great too! I got a few that were the same or similar to that batch but for the most part these are really different that what is currently in my collection. I think at this point I probably have about 30-40 varieties living in my extra bedroom :)
I’m hoping to get the wreath put together within the next week, but for now the cuttings are just sitting on a piece of wood with paper towels on top so I can water them. I’m anxious for these to root and it won’t be big deal if they root a little before the wreath gets put together. I have high hopes for this wreath so I think it will take me a little while to decide just how I want to arrange it. When I do get around to putting it together I am going to do a tutorial to share with you all! I know there are several living wreath tutorials out there, but I thought I’d take a stab at it anyway.
Well, without further ado, I give you… the succulent cuttings! (Beware… this may be a little bit of photo overload, but I wanted to show you each of varieties I got!)
So, if you want to get your succulent collection started quickly with a lot of beautiful plants… consider buying cuttings!
