turtle shaped succulents

Succulents are popular with plant enthusiasts. They are small and extremely easy to maintain, and their odd shapes are always a real eye-catcher. In the next trick, we are going to make a giant tortoise whose shell is made up of many small succulents. Too cute !

In the workshop :

  • Hanging planter with coconut fiber
  • Foam
  • Potting soil
  • Wire mesh
  • Pliers
  • Green acrylic paint
  • Wire
  • 4 small flower pots
  • 2 wooden beads
  • Delicious

At work !

1. Remove the coconut coir and fill the planter with moss and then potting soil, as shown below.

2. Cut the coir four times at regular intervals from the outside to the middle and fold the segments inward. Put the fiber in the planter on the moss and potting soil.

3. Now place a piece of wire mesh over it and cut the protruding wire with pliers. Fold the ends around the planter so that everything fits together.

4. Paint 4 small flower pots with green acrylic paint and tie the 4 pots to the wire mesh, opening upwards, with wire.

5. Now form two cylinders of different sizes from the wire mesh and fill them with moss and soil, as shown in the video. The smallest shape should be slightly pointed (it will act as a tail for the turtle). The larger cylinder will be the head of the turtle.

6. Turn your planter over so that the pots are on the ground and attach the head and tail to them (use the pliers). If necessary, you can also use additional wire for fixing.

7. Thread 2 wooden beads on wire and attach them to the head to form the eyes.

8. Now place your succulents on the turtle’s body. To insert the succulents, you must always spread the foam a little and “dig” a small hole.

A nice decoration for your exterior, whether it is a garden, a balcony or a terrace. In no time at all, your turtle’s entire shell will be filled with succulents. Awesome !
