Hey everyone, I am making plans to make a couple of potted succulent "mini gardens." And I was hoping y'all might be able to tell me some names of cool looking succulents?

Thanks!

You might try a Spineless cactus, I think that is a succulent. Is it going to be in a pot?

Yes, it is going to be potted. I bought 3 different cactus yesterday. They are "mini cinnimon cactus", "thimble cactus", and "chamaelobivia hybrid." But I dont want to put them all together, because I want it to be a variety of different succulents.

Thanks, Austin

It looks so cute! Keep in mind a lot of succulents cant take our heat or sun. I found this out the hard way. Also, small pots heat up so fast and so high that they might need a good deal of protection during the hottest months.
