• Perfect Succulent Plant-Pot Pairings

    61,372 views 3 years ago
    Diana Clark scours antique stores and estate sales worldwide, for unusual and beautiful ceramic and stoneware vessels, then drills holes in the bottom. Next, with an aesthetic reminiscent of Japanese bonsai, she pairs the container with a succulent that echoes some aspect of the container's shape, texture or color.

    "When you use a single type of succulent," Diana says, "the composition just looks better and better as the plant grows, and you can enjoy it much longer without needing to edit or redo it."

    Diana fills a container all the way to the top with soil "so you don't see the inside of the pot," and after planting it, adds a topdressing of pebbles. To display her works of living art, she sometimes elevates them atop blocks of wood or wrought-iron stands.
