I am in love with Shop Succulents on Etsy. I’ve been wanting an item (any item) from their shop for some time. So, you should understand how excited I was when they sent me their Teardrop Succulent Terrarium Trio Kit for me to enjoy and share with my readers.

I must say these teardrop vases are even more gorgeous in person. The photos don’t do them justice.

The kit that Shop Succulents sent me comes with 3 separate succulents:

Perle von Nurnberg – Waxy pearly-purple/bluish colored rosettes
Echeveria Derenbergii – This perennial evergreen has frosted bristle- red tipped leaves and blooms a bell shaped tiny flowers with painted red tips during the winter season.
Echeveria Runyonii “Topsy Turvy” – A pale blue-gray rosette with leaves that curve upwards

The kit also comes with Crassula Tetragona (slender, rounded emerald green leaves), soil, and the 3 tear-drop glass vases.

Each succulent was packaged in separate boxes and labeled, which made it easy to move it directly from its box into the vase.

Setting up the terrariums was super easy. First, I placed the soil in a vase and dropped in 3 of the Crassula Tetragona in the back of the vase. I, then, made a hold in the soil (in the front of the vase) and placed in a succulent. Just repeat for the other 2 succulents and you’re done. So simple a cave man can do it (hmmm…).

it's so simple setting up these terrariums; use a small paint brush to remove soil from the inside of the vase or the petals of the succulents

I'm not sure if I'll be able to keep these together... they might be split up throughout the house...

Care Instructions:

Keep terrarium out of direct sun! Indirect or filtered light only so the plants do not get burned. Water sparingly…our designers use a spray bottle and lightly spray the soil once or twice a week. If you do not have a spray bottle just be careful not to leave any standing water in the globe. Be sure to water the soil, not the plants. Succulents do not do well with standing water on their leaves.

I think the best part of these terrariums is that they can be hung from the top with rope, ribbon, fabric, or anything else you want to use. I’m trying to figure out the best place to hang these (once I stop moving them from surface to surface). Make sure to visit Shop Succulents to buy these and see all the other beautiful terrariums they have.

So, do you love these? What’s your best tips for taking care of succulent terrariums? Be sure to drop a comment and let me know.

Till next time,

XOXO

    ooooh I’ve always wanted to get some of these. I guess I’ll put them on my list. I remember seeing a video on these, people pay a ton for someone to design them in the bigger glass containers they are so pretty and peaceful looking.

      Hey Elle!
      Thanks for visiting! Just from the last couple of days of playing around with these succulents, I’ve become less intimidated by them. I actually know first hand (now I do) how easy it is to do this yourself. Try it out: get a nice vase, good soil (ask your garden center), some succulents, and arrange to your heart’s content. It would be really cool if you got some green moss to add to the top of your soil.
