- A heavy duty plastic bag
- Succulent and Cactus potting mix
- A small purse or other container
- A mix of succulents and or sedum
- Sharp scissors
I used a heavy duty zip lock bag, but you can use any clear plastic bag.
You can find succulent/cactus potting mix in nurseries, garden centers and in the garden departments of big box stores.
When choosing a container, consider how you will hang or display it and what kinds of plants would look good in it. The technique I used for this purse can be used for shoes, bags, gloves...and many other things I haven't yet considered.
I have used a combination of succulents and sedums because they are drought tolerant. If you want to use your container for an event, or don't care how long it lasts, you can use almost any plant that you can squeeze in to the container.
