Melrose Trading Post

Last Sunday, June 24, the Republic of Succulents sold at the Melrose Trading Post, our first “public market” experience. It was a gorgeous LA day, so after the legwork of setting up, we kicked back in our orange and green beach chairs and greeted potential customers. Overall, it was an interesting and good experience.

Replanting & Grooming

You can maintain the beauty of a succulent arrangement by grooming it periodically. This means pulling off the dead/dried leaves from the plant and those that have fallen into the soil. Also, after sometime, the plants may have grown big and unwieldy. Check out this arrangement given to Tiffany & Adrian at their Housewarming Party over 2 years ago. Most of the plants have done well, grown. One didn’t do so well as you can see at the bottom of the picture. Replanting and grooming does it wonders – see the after!
