I scored this vintage mid century planter for $13 at a flea market! What should I put in it? I need the perfect thing. I’m a succulent gal, so a cactus or succ is what I want. I’m thinking something tall since the pot is small. Ideas? #SucculentSquad #SucculentLove #Succulents #SuccerForSucculents #CactusClique #Cactus
@karmynsprops oooo that is a good one!
Humm I love the Pencil Cactus Euphorbia tirucalli or any kind of euphoria they are so pretty an get tall
Or you could just ship it to me which would be the best possible choice I feel...💫✨️🙃🌿❤️🔥
Ooooo get you a tiger claw!!! They grow up incredibly tall based on pot size
I love your new pot! It’s really cute!
I have one thats similar to that color and a SOT looks beautiful with it!
Wow good find
Some type of jade would be pretty☺️
@BuoyantSandleek I don’t have any euphorbias yet! And @FirstCanna I do like color!
@WisePōhutukawa I’m not sure what a tiger claw is, but I feel like something tall would look good!
oh wow that planter is so lovely! maybe a mini cactus?
A euphorbia obesa would be pretty cool in that
@RJG it definitely has your cacti identified incorrectly. 😂 but that’s and awesome one. I love that type. It’s going to start growing like crazy it appears. You’ll have multiple heads soon probably. That one looks so awesome too. Actually if @jana85 can find a loph for sale that would also be a cool one to put in the vintage planter. Or the one you have. Both would be really cool
@PapaHempseed you’ll end up putting that devils lettuce in it if it’s sent to you. 😂 . I like that planter also. I might go to antique stores to look for old ones like that now.
@SunnyLancefern that’s the second vote for that!
@SirLiquorice I don’t have any euphorbias yet so I’ll look into that. I LOVE how adorable lophophora are but idk if I can find one to buy. I have to pretty much order everything online because nobody in eastern Kentucky sells desert plants. I was lucky to find this planter because nearly all the vintage ones I find don’t have holes in them! They usually sell for $10-$15 though, which is cheap!
@Jana85 that would be super cool to have one of those in that pot. But a obesa would also be pretty awesome. But the LW would be super cool since it’s extra rare and exotic
@Jana85 just message him on instagram and he will send pics and prices depending on how old and large you want to buy.
@SirLiquorice thank you so much! Do you also have a recommendation for a cactus that blooms pretty reliably? I love the flowers but I think the few cacti I own aren’t prolific bloomers.
That rebutia is also cold tolerant I’ve noticed some mine survived 15 degrees for a long time while others died and froze half to death. It had no issues with the cold. And the flowers last a few days and more just keep growing and blooming. So definitely one of the very best for flowers. Actually almost any rebutia would be a good choice for lots of flowers. https://planetdesert.com/pages/search-results-page?q=rebutia
@SirLiquorice that’s super helpful! Thank you so much!!
@Jana85 honestly, I have never heard of many of them. I believe the sellers make up their own names to trick us collectors!!
@Jana85 I got some cold hardy cacti that bloom pretty often... and you really wouldn't have to worry about them in Kentucky winter...
@SubAlp is this the same thing as a climbing Aloe?
@fairficus slightly different. They look more stiff/straight/symmetrical, but I like those too :)
