Mixed Succulents in a Barrel

The Rare Barrel brews beers, especially sour beers, which seems to be the latest craze. But here we see they put some succulents in a barrel instead. Delicious!

That’s a very nice paper cactus, by Jordan Shone whose website refers to her as:

I am a paper engineer / set designer currently living in the South West. My work brings together my obsessions with collecting, detail and colour in the realms of 3D.

That’s as close as I could get before the scurried off.

Who designed them? Allison Cole.

Where can you get them? Cactus Jungle.

They’re right up the street from us!!! And they came and visited and took pictures and blogged and everything.


So how did we find out about their product? Did we walk right up the street and take a look? No! We went to a trade show in New York and found them there. And then back home here.

What do you think of their stuff?

Found this random photo of a garden planted in a re-up-cycled meter box. I wonder how many of these are now available since the advent of the smart meter?

The original artist is Andrew Manocheo from Chicago and the piece was featured in Sprout Home in case you don’t want to re-up-cycle one yourself.

Why, it’s Bone China of course.

That’s ridiculous. I mean, I suppose there’s a botanical theme to it and all…

People ask us – is the Cactus Jungle open on Easter? Yes! And then they ask if we have blooming cactus? Yes we do!

I wonder what you would think of fancy succulent planters? Would you always like them, like some of them, or hate them all? But wait, don’t answer yet! What if I told you that they were fancy Troll succulent planters and fancy Brick succulent planters. What then?

You say you would first have to see a picture???


Here they go…


Trolls get Spiked!

The bricks have some Echeverias and a Haworthia too. The trolls are mostly planted with Haworthias, and a Euphorbia too.

Random Cactus cupcakes posting. My sister posted these to my Facebook timeline but I don’t know the original source. Are they for sale? I don’t know! Is there a recipe? Still don’t know. Delicious? I assume so.

Since my sister is vegan, do you think that means these are vegan? Since they were posted on facebook do you think that means they’re viral? Since they’re Cactus do you think I can name all the species?
