Succulent Problem

For those who don't follow my Twitter, I am rapidly developing a minor succulent addiction. There are so many. And they are so pretty. And they are sturdy.

And I went and bought a couple at the garden shop a few weeks ago, and when you go to repot those suckers, each one turns into like four because they come apart and each one is a whole plant.

Now I know why people do all those cute little sedum baskets and planters in birdhouses and whatnot. Because they've run out of pots.

This led to the following conversation:

ME: I'm gonna be in the studio punching drainage holes in stuff.
KEVIN: 'Kay.
ME: If you hear a scream, I missed!
KEVIN: ....sigh.

My Little Pony Planter

Sometimes you manage to kill two birds with one stone...

I can't imagine I'm the first person to think of this, but rough directions here.

This particular pony had pin-dot AND some child had taken a marker to her, so I have no particular qualms. (It was a Snuzzle.) The succulents will root or not, but they'll at least take awhile to die.
