Not So Green Thumbed

This will be a quick post, because it was a failure.

I started out with these 5 succulent plants.


I got them a while back at Home Depot, for around $2 a piece. I wanted to emulate some of the awesome terrariums I’ve been seeing in the blog world lately like this one


or, dare I dream, these ones from CB2.


Some mistakes were made on my part, like not transferring the plants for quite a while, and by the time they had spent a day or two in the glass container I put them in, they were dead.

I lived in denial for a couple weeks about it, but then leaves started to fall off the plants, and the parts of the succulents were very dry and brittle.

I dumped the plants and dirt in the garbage and resumed using the glass container as a candle holder on the coffee table.


Oh well. At least I can say I tried.
