Here are some of my accent plantings, more to come soon. These first 4 are all hosta in Erin pottery. From left to right the cultivars are 'remember me', 'dragon tails', 'cherish', and 'blue mouse ears'.

those are lithops or more known as 'living stones'. they flower really nice in the fall. i have a few for about 3 years now.

hope that helps

Interesting plants and pots.

I really need to make more accent pots, I just never seem to get around to it :rolleyes:

Tell me about that Lithops. Does is reproduce easily and are the flowers all the same color?

We'll have to see if Eric can jump back in with some answers on those Lithops. I just happened to be wandering through home depot and saw some succulents. I stopped to look at them and immediately knew they were perfect for this tiny (1 in. sq.) accent pot I had sitting around for a few months.

lithops grow in a weird way. they start shrivelng in spring where the new body emerge, and as soon as the old body is dried-up, watering cycle begins. water till compost is totally saturated and water again only when its totally dry. they flower in fall, with a small daisy like flower, about 3/4" diameter in yellow or white. after flowering, stop watering till the next spring. easy! lol. i grow them indoors all year round in a southern exposure windowsill.:D

hope that helps
eric

Very nice accents. Do you use regular soil in these plantings or bonsai soil?
