A Succulent is Forever...

Posted: Mar 24 2014

If we had a dollar for every time one of our brides expressed remorse over the fact that her wedding flowers won't last forever, we would have enough money to take next wedding season off (not that we'd want to - that's when we have the most fun!).

And while it is an indisputable fact that your anemones will eventually flop and your poppies will lose all their petals, there is one faithful bloom that, with the right care, will only get better with age - and that, my friends, is the echeveria succulent.

Did you know that succulent cuttings will form new roots, and eventually grow new plants, if you place them in a pot of sandy soil? That means that the echeveria blooms from your bridal bouquets and centerpieces can be propagated, and will eventually grow into big, happy, potted plants.  Can you think of anything sweeter than having a houseplant that originally came from your wedding flowers? Click here for step-by-step instructions on how to propagate your very own echeveria plant.
