    Succulent City

    Succulent City

    Succulent City is the name of my house right now. Every single flat surface in the house (except my desk, luckily) is covered with tiny pots of succulents. It's a bit.... ahem... overwhelming..... but it's so beautiful!

    So here's the update: I have bought a succulent business. All the inventory is currently in my living room. I am very new to being a business owner, luckily my partner is going to be mostly running it, and I will take care of the orders and the media. We are currently building a nursery for it, and very excited about growing the business.

    I am probably going to step back from collegenet for a bit so that I can focus on my next steps as a new business owner. I think 2018 is going to be great!

    My question to you is... Do you know what succulents are? (you'd be surprised, some people don't see them because it's too cold in their area), do you grow succulents? Do they grow in your area? I became obsessed with them when I visited the succulent garden at Balboa Park in San Diego. It was quite a sight to see, and some of them get enormous! They're all beautiful, like fractals and roses and mandalas all in one. Thanks for the support you guys, and all the wins, and I will be back shortly, hopefully with a business that is standing on two feet!

    Cheers! and Happy New Year!

    Hi iceberg,

    Wow, that sounds like a really cool business! I wish you the best of luck with it!

    I've seen lots of cool different succulent containers in recent years. I think my parents have succulents in their garden in front of their house. They are short, ground cover plants and they are green. I think like 8 years ago, I went to a garden store with my dad and we picked out all these different ground covers. One type took over all the others and so now it's the only one that's remaining and it has spread out. It looks pretty cool, but I'm not sure we picked the right spot for it because I think taller plants would have looked better in that location. But I still think they are interesting plants.

    Have a great day!

    Hello!

    Your succulent business sounds amazing and I wish you all the best! My best friend has her own succulent business in California, so I love learning from her. I have notoriously been known for killing my plants, and I went through I period of time when I killed all of my succulents.

    My friend helped me nurse my babies back to life and now I have healthy and thriving succulents. I have outdoor ones that line my porch and indoor ones throughout the house. They are really fun to replant and watch grow.

    I wish you all the best for 2018!

    Hey!

    Your business sounds awesome - and there's definitely a market for it right now!

    I think succulents are much "cuter" than regular house plants so I'd rather keep them. Over the summer, I went to an auction and won a whole flat of them, so they're all over my house! I bought a bunch of cute little pots to keep them in and they're the perfect decorations.

    Best of luck with starting your business!
