This is a novel idea for a succulent plant. It is made with a thick book and succulent plants. Succulents take very little moisture. They are great for arid places or inside in the winter with the dry heat. They are like a cactus. They take moderate light and are exceptionally easy to grow.
Approximate Time: A couple of hours

I heard about this idea a couple of years ago but never investigated it so actually seeing one for the first time here really impresses me! It's adorable and oh so recycle green! You should make oodles of these and sell them, Elaine! The planters are called Honbachi (book pot).
I don't have any books readily available that I would want to do this to but am due for a trip to the Goodwill soon and will find an approriate one to use from there. ;-)
This DIY planter is an envelop style made from chicken wire and lined with moss. It looks quite nice hanging on your fence or elsewhere in your garden. Learn how to make your own by following the steps and their accompanying photos on this page.
