How To Make A Succulent Sphere or Globe

Recently, I ran across this unique succulent collection which is a current Amazon Best Seller and was thinking of a fun way to use them all. One of the great things about growing succulents is you can plant them all together to create some unique looks.

Sure you can plant them individually, or put several in a pot. However, a succulent globe or shpere gives an entirely different look.

Being a little skeptial I spent some time reading through the comments. There were lots of 5 Star reviews along with some not so glowing ones, but overall this succulent collection gets 4 Stars. Looks like a good place to start.

Earlier we shared the idea of making a succulent hanging basket. But the idea can go in another direction. Instead of a hanging basket, how about creating a hanging succulent globe by using two hanging baskets to create a globe, orb or sphere!

You could hang the globe in the garden or placed it on a decorative pot to make an interesting focal point.
