    I LOVE this! I am such a fan of fairy gardens and using a tea cup makes it super adorable. My kids have teacher appreciation gifts to make for tomorrow and I think this will be something their teacher will really enjoy. Thank you for the inspiration (and plant names).

      Give it a try, succulents are really easy to grow.
      Best of luck,

    oh my gosh, this is so adorable! I am so glad you showed how you placed rocks in the bottom for drainage!!! No one ever treats succulents right! They need dry soil with good drainage. Love these.

    I got some really cute teacups on clearance and thought about putting a plant in them. Instead I’m going to try your fairy garden idea. My husband drilled a hole in the cup so I’m hoping that will help with the drainage, but my concern is how much sunlight do these succulents need in the house? Your teacup is so cute and adorable. Thanks for any help.
