There was some concern about how these would actually work as there is no drainage for the water. I wasn't completely sure if these plants would stay alive or not. Do mugs work for succulents? I had no idea. So this has been the longest Pinstrosity experiment yet, but today I wanted to show you what these look like at this exact moment (or...about 2 minutes ago when I took the picture):
The succulent in the blue mug bit the dust (haha, that was the "hope" mug...does that mean I let my hopes die? Haha! Okay, lame jokes done), but these others are doing great! I hadn't realized just how much they had grown until just now. Cool beans! Once they get much larger I'll need to transplant them into a larger container, but these mugs have been the perfect starter pots for now!
Yea for mugs!
