From Country Living

From mermaid tails to dolphins, sea-inspired succulents can give your home a beachy vibe this summer—no matter how far you are from sandy shores. If you’re looking for another succulent shaped like an underwater creature and a fun gardening craft, you’re going to want to DIY a “jellyfish” succulent.

What are jellyfish succulents?

While some types of succulents grow in a variety of adorable shapes like hearts, bear paws, and bunny ears, jellyfish succulents require some crafting (which, if you love a good plant-related DIY, is a huge plus). Jellyfish succulents are a cluster of succulents assembled in a hanging basket with cascading vines.

How do you make jellyfish succulents?

Step 1: Gather materials

According to Tropical Plant Party’s YouTube video above, you’ll need:

Step 2: Fill the basket about halfway with potting soil, and add fertilizer to the top.

Step 3: Add in vine plants like Dichondra, facing outward.

Step 4: Fill in the rest of the pot with soil, making sure it’s packed in.

Step 5: Attach a weed barrier by using a needle to stitch it in with wire.

Step 6: Flip the basket upside down and rest it on to an empty pot, then trim any excess weed barrier.

Step 7: Attach succulents to the pot using pins, making sure the base of the succulents are in contact with the moss so they will root.

Where can you display jellyfish succulents?

Hang them on trellises, patios, pergolas, or balconies. OR attach them to a flagpole or signpost if you don’t have one of those!
