  1. These ideas are all really cool! I’ve always been a sucker for any kind of succulent ideas, especially wacky ones. I do wonder how people think up some of these ideas though?

    I like the wine bottle one, I think that is my favourite. How would you stop it from rolling over though?

    I’ve shared it on Twitter so more people can enjoy :)

  2. You’re quite an artist, I really loved these ideas. The one in glass bowl and with a bottle of wine are just amazing. I’m definitely gonna give it a go. Cheers!

  3. It s not typically thought of as a houseplant, but lavender can survive indoors under the right conditions. Give it bright, direct light for a few hours every day, preferably in a south-facing window, and water when the soil is slightly dry. Don t overwater lavender, though, or the plant will rot.
