I have been wanting a beautiful arrangement of succulents for a long time--they are low maintenance and add some much needed live plants to our home. With the demise of my orchid, gifted from my realtor (found out I was over-watering-although I followed instructions!), I replaced the flower with succulents from the same floral shop. I love how it adds life and greenery to the room, not to mention enhances our home's feng shui:
Here's hoping they last much longer than my poor orchid!
