BOTANICALITY

Best of Show votes are now being accepted through May 31st.

Vintage-style three compartment metal drawer with succulent plantings and mini chalkboard.

I ran across these drawers the other day, and thought they’d look great planted up - too bad I only found a pair of them!  Check them out in my Etsy shop!

These are the new terrariums planted with succulents and moss.  I think they look pretty sweet, too.  Check them out in my Etsy shop and save 10% until August 16th with the code “loyal10” at checkout.

I spent the morning taking sample shots of quite a few new terrariums - all of these are a pretty nice size, too.  Check them all out here: BOTANICALITY.

Oh, and save 10% until August 15th with the code “loyal10” at checkout. I just made my 50th Etsy sale last week!

So, what exactly did this year’s BOTANICALITY SPRING BOTANICAL ART SHOW winners take home?

Well, flora-file, bromeliace, and cactguy (that’s me) put together some awesome prizes that included:

-custom winner’s certificates

-original photographic prints

-Bromeliads

-succulent cuttings

-cacti

-air plants (Tillandsia)
