Our rental townhouse is severly lacking in green space. As in... we have a small dirt patch about 9 inches by 2 feet and that is our 'yard'. Basically it's enough space for our gutter downspout to train into. The view is not pretty, folks. Concrete and vinal siding as far as the eye can see.
I've been saying for months that I wanted to find small succulant planters and have a small collection of plants in our living room. Succulants are great because they're hard to kill; both for me and our cat. While shopping at Ikea a few weekends ago we came upon these planters AND the succulants to go in them.
They take hardly any work and they look fabulous. The cat has stopped trying to eat them, even! A great way to bring the outside in.
