Gift Ideas for Indoor Cacti Gardens

Guest Author - Connie Krochmal

Buying gifts is easy for those indoor gardeners on your shopping list. All sorts of garden related items are suitable, especially when they happen to be cacti and succulent lovers.

Start with some of the colorful mini strawberry planters. Small enough for a windowsill or tabletop, these are made of terra cotta. These gorgeous clay pots are often painted in lovely shades, such as cobalt blue.

These pocket planters allow indoor cacti and succulent growers to make the most use of their indoor growing space. Be sure and buy the terra cotta ones. The cheap plastic ones are tacky and donít cost that much less than the real thing.

For gifts, ceramic pots are just perfect. If they donít come with matching saucers, buy these separately.

Cacti and succulent lovers can always use cache pots. These make great
gifts. They allow indoor cacti and succulent gardeners to dress up their ordinary pots without repotting the plants. Cache pots come in a wide range of sizes, styles, colors, and materials. While some are suitable for year-round use, others are of seasonal interest. Materials include the usual plastic along with ceramic, porcelain, resin, and metal.

For those with climbing type indoor cacti and succulents, pot trellises make great holiday gifts. These provide much more than support for the plants for they can be quite attractive. The materials include unpainted bamboo as well as black metal. The styles can vary as well from classic style obelisks to a traditional teepee shape.

Many indoor cacti and succulent growers love to dress up their plants. So, colorful gravel, pebbles, and stones make good gifts. These are usually sold in small plastic bags, weighing around a pound or so. Colored sand is also a possibility as well.

Indoor cacti and succulent lovers also need more seeds and plants. If you donít know what kind they want, give them a gift certificate either to a mail order company or local garden center/nursery, so they can choose what they want.

For indoor gardeners, Logeeís is a good choice because they sell lots of different kinds of indoor cacti and succulents.
