Debra, thanks for sharing this - I really love it. I have the perfect bowl and will definitely be copying this idea.
deb, this is just absolutely BRILLIANT.
and so thoughtful for you to provide the instructions.
the container has drain holes, yes? why will the rosettes "only last a yr or more"? plse also tell us what you use for a planting medium. and thanks so much. you just made my week, at least!

Beautiful composition, Debra. My succulents are now in their winter nursery (extra bedroom) being watered and 'lit' as per ideas from your books. Ah, to live in CA as opposed to Denver where my succulents could reach their true potential ;) Oh, that's right, they're not kids...
I'm glad you like it! Yes, the container has a drain hole, which I covered with a piece of window screen. Oops, I should have said "the arrangement will last a year or more." Those graptosedum rosettes will get leggy and deconstruct the composition, so in about a year (less, if the weather is warm and the plants are actively growing) you'll probably want to redo it. Graptosedum is easy to start from cuttings, so simply prune the tips and tuck back in.
