Mixed Succulents + Ceramic Planter

$49.00

Our mixed succulent arrangements are the perfect plant gift. They present as a stylish, living succulent bouquet with gifting in mind. We consider the season, colours, plants with similar requirements, texture, habit and form in the creation of our mixed succulent planters. Typically a feature ‘thriller’ plant is surrounded by dense, ‘filler’ succulents and finished with soft ‘spiller’ plants trailing over the edge. Each arrangement is unique relative to the pot it is paired with. We might pair a soft feminine arrangement with the speckled, pastel coloured planters and a stronger, sculptural arrangement for the matte, black and green planters subject to plant and pot availability at any given time. Our ceramic planters are 10cm w x 9cm h and we use a quality cacti mix that is top dressed with small river pebbles. You will receive an arrangement similar to images shown.
