ucculents and cacti for interiors are all the rage right now, I’m not joking. With the revival of Mid Century design, these plants cannot stay behind. Ideal for frequent travellers and the one’s amongst us who do not have “green fingers” as they are hard to kill. These prickly beauties can go a long way without water or other love. I give my own Aloe Vera a cup a month (if I remember) and it’s still going strong. So skip buying a bunch of flowers next time, and get some of these instead!
cht, ik maak geen grap, vetplanten en cactussen zijn weer helemaal hot. Er is een opleving gaande van Mid Century design en daar horen deze planten natuurlijk bij. Ideaal voor diegenen die vaak langer van huis zijn, of voor de types zonder “groene vingers” onder ons. Deze “kamelen van de plantenwereld” hebben heel weinig water of ander soort liefde nodig. Ik geef mijn eigen Aloe Vera 1 kopje water per maand (als ik er aan denk) en zoals je ziet doet’ie het nog steeds. Dus koop de volgende keer eens wat van deze beauties in plaats van de wekelijkse bos bloemen.
UPDATE 18-08-2015: WORKSHOP SUCCULENTS AND CACTI FOR INTERIORS
Recently, Greige Design from Lake Forest, California hosted a workshop where you could learn all about arrangements with (faux) succulents and cacti. Below are some images of the final results. I think they are absolutely amazing. Unfortunately, this workshop is not for me, being situated in Amsterdam. But for all of my US readers, I would certainly pay Greige Design‘s website a visit, as there will be more workshops.

- Mid Century sideboards are one of my things these days. Those high-quality sleek, minimal cupboards made of precious woods like walnut, rosewood or teak are not only aesthetic to the eye, but so handy and practical as well. Great for creating a vignette of your current favourite things, practical for storing…
- Worn leather furniture, usually in tan colors, add a touch of warmth in these mostly monochrome interiors. All these interiors have a minimal, Scandinavian vibe going on, which I love. Quirky art and tastefully arranged bookcases add a personal touch. Materials used are mostly wood, steel, glass and worn leather.…
Thank you for a most informative article. It is so important to have plants in a building and one very seldom thinks of having succulents in stead of flowers.
Hi Johann, thanks for your comment. Before this trend I used to think of succulents and cacti as “granny” plants, but now you see that they can be as beautiful as a bunch of flowers. It’s just the way these plants are combined presented that make the difference.

This is not the best way to grow cacti and succulents…
They must grow outdoor!
