Once you've finished eating the chocolates from the heart-shaped box they came in on Valentines Day, you can recycle the box for use as a pretty container to hold easy-to-grow succulents.
Simply wipe out the bottom of the box with a damp cloth, add succulent potting mix or gravel to the bottom one-third to one-half third of the box, and then nestle in your choice of succulents to fill in the space. Gently loosen up the roots of your succulents and remove any dead roots or old dirt stuck to them before planting.
You can leave room for an interesting piece of wood or decorative rock if you like.
Moisten the soil after planting, and then water only occasionally (misting the succulents is best to keep the box from getting soggy). Succulents can live for one to three months without water, so water sparingly.
Place the succulents box in a bright, light spot (succulents love sun and warmth) and enjoy!
