You know it is a special event when I gift my succulent babies. In this post, I share a creative container succulent gift project in this post was created for a friend with love!
Creative Container Succulent Gift Project
I have so much fun in the dome. During this planting event, it was 80*F in the dome and only 30*F outside. Be sure to scroll down to see how cute these turned out for the baby shower!

Where to Get The Pots
If you are a member on the GardenChat Group you’ll remember I asked for suggestions when planting these cute little containers. We had some great suggestions but ended up going with baby succulents because I have lots of those in my dome greenhouse.
My friend purchased the containers on Amazon. Each container was wrapped professionally and the containers arrived ready to use. I am starting to think that the painted terra cotta is better for growing succulents. In the past, I’ve been using plain terra cotta containers but I hope to start planting mine to protect my succulent babies.

Picking The Right Succulents
I grow many different succulents in my home and garden. My geodesic biodome is becoming a Conservatory JUNGLE when it comes to unique plants including a wide selection of succulents I’ve picked up along the way. My biggest obstacle over the years has been keeping track of the plant’s name. I am working on that! I have been creating the right environment to get some amazing new plants from the old ones that I simple to propagate. For the project in this post, I want to give a plant that will be enjoyed indoors and hopefully inspire them to grow more. Here are the 3 varieties:
- Jade Plant because of it’s diverse form and is excellent indoors and outdoors
- ‘Black Gem’ (x Alworthia pentagona): A hybrid of Aloe speciosa x Haworthia cymbiformis.
- Kalanchoe (Kalanchoe blossfeldiana)is a great plant to grow indoors and blooms easily. I shared more about the ones I grow in my website at: Kalanchoe.
- Aeonium ‘Kiwi‘, Aeonium decorum ‘Kiwi‘, Aeonium haworthii ‘Variegata’, Aeonium haworthii ‘Tricolor’, Aeonium haworthii ‘Dream Color’
I hope these recommendations help you decided which succulent is best to grow indoors.
Photos From The Project
I had so much fun with this project. The only thing I wish I would have included as a small removable plastic container but we were using what we had on hand.
All smiles because I love giving my succulent babies space to grow. In the photo below I am enjoying the afternoon being crafty with succulents.
I had so much fun putting these together and I just know they will be the hit of the party. The photo below features kiwi succulent and a Hen & Chicks in the background (which I do not recommend for inside growing).
Look how cute they turned out for the Baby Shower ( photo below). I love the little sign encouraging the guest to watch them grow. These turned out just perfect.
I shared this video on Facebook. Be sure to follow me other there for more fun events and GardenChat group updates.
