DIY Project: Growing Cactuses + Succulents

People are always asking me how I have so many cacti and succulents all over my house. Here's my secret: I buy them in bulk on Amazon.

There are plenty of sellers who will sell several dozen 1" plants. I buy them up, plant them in cheap little pots, and generally 2/3 of them make it after a year or two. If you're patient, you can get a great deal but remember - it'll take a few years for them to grow a few inches!

The last group we bought all made it through shipping but we had to spend a lot of time picking the tiny rocks out of their spines with medical forceps.
