IKEA and succulents.

A perfect pairing, don't you think? We recently scoured our beloved IKEA store (in person!) to suss out all the things we can use for displaying succulents. Some of these ideas are obvious, some are a little out of the box. Oh, and if you need some advice on how to pot or repot succulents, this easy DIY guide will help.

Watering Can

While you're at it, might as well get a stylish watering can, because those succulents won't water themselves!


Laurie Gunning Grossman, Hunker’s editorial director, caught the California boho minimalist bug. So, she bought a cream-colored couch. And she also lives with two kids and two dogs, so we’ll see how that decision pans out.
