Should succulents be one of the 7 deadly sins?

Sometimes succulents tempt us to do things we wouldn't normally do. While they're all fun and happy most of the time, every once in a while they can bring out the worst in people. Maybe they shouldn't actually be one of the seven deadly sins, but they sure can cause people to commit most of the sins.

Lust can be defined as a strong desire for something. How many times have you been browsing instagram then suddenly wanted to go buy a bunch of succulents? I know I have. This is a pretty common happening.


Lust frequently leads to envy -- desiring to have something that belongs to someone else. I know I've had this problem whenever I see gorgeous succulent gardens in Southern California. 


Trying to get as many succulents as possible, being selfish with your plants and not sharing with others... 


Gluttony is habitual green. There's no doubt succulents are addicting. Even when I have a lot it seems I always want to buy or propagate more.


While succulents often make you want to work hard in the garden, they tend to cause slothfulness in other areas. Have you ever found yourself avoiding other tasks by spending time with your succulents?


Wrath doesn't come along too often but it can definitely come! A couple things I can think of… Slugs eating my succulents, accidentally knocking an arrangement off a table...


A feeling or deep pleasure or satisfaction derived from one's own achievements. I don't know this is necessarily a sin, but I've definitely been proud of most of my succulent arrangements and projects.
