hippo planter

My poor planter. I bought some great Sempervivums last year that did wonderfully for ages. Then one day, they just died. I’m not sure what happened. Over watered, under watered, under sunned… could be anything. However, while running some errands over the weekend I found myself in the garden section of Lowes. A hanging basket of succulents sat staring me in the face. For $14.99- sure! I split the plants between the original hanging basket and my hippo planter, all decked out with some new soil. I left the hippo outside for a day or so to let the plants settle, and brought it inside tonight. I hope it does well this time. Its pretty much my favorite planter ever, one of the best 50¢ purchases I’ve ever made.
