In the Kitchen

Repurpose old colanders by painting them with your chosen hues. After repotting your succulents, you may place your finished project by the window near the sink or in one corner of the counter. 

RL Tip: Choose a strategic place where you can place your succulent so you can still work efficiently in the kitchen.

In the Kitchen and Dining Areas

Use white ceramics like a pitcher or gravy boat/sauce server as planters for your mini greens. Display it by the kitchen or dining area. To avoid clutter, use a mini shelf to keep your setups organized.
