I am obsessed with succulents. Their colors, shapes, textures and resilience are incredible. They are the ideal investment for those who have a history of killing plants as they require minimum maintenance. I learned from a florist that a succulent will stay alive up for up to 6 months out of a pot with no root system as long as it receives mists of water (infrequently) on its leaves. And how cute are vintage tea tins??
I found these sweet vintage tea tins, and thought they’d make a great home for my newly purchased succulents.
UPDATE! You can now purchase a set of 4 tins or a set of 5 tins!
They do not have a drainage hole on the bottom, I plan to mist them with a little water from a spray bottle every few weeks as per my florist’s instructions. They also would be a perfect nest for an air plant (no soil required!). If you wanted to try this with herbs (that would require more watering), you could poke a hole in the bottom of the tea tins to let them drain.
