Ssucculents 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!

Eecht, 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.
