Having plants in the house is a great way to spruce up your space and bring an airy feel into your home. However, having fresh flowers with short life spans or plants that require daily watering can be hard to keep up with. A popular and attractive way to get the fresh look you love from live plants, without the tedious upkeep, is to decorate with succulents and cacti. Not only do succulents add a touch of tropical greenery to your space, they are also extremely sustainable and low maintenance as they only require watering one or two times a month.

We’ve seen succulents grow in popularity recently and are loving the unique ways people are incorporating them into their home interior. So, we’re bringing you some of our favorite ways people are decorating with succulents to inspire your own home decor.

These terrariums make for the perfect succulent containers and add an eye catching element to whichever space you choose to add them to.
