Succulent Art

Just a spritz of water here and there and succulents take care of themselves. These artistic sculptures utilize wireframes and other methods to keep succulents in place.

  1. Dear Mala,

    Thanks for your interest.

    Although I took the images of the succulent garden in San Diego, Pat Hammer, Director of Operations of the San Diego Botanical Garden created the figures.

    You are welcome to use my images (with credit to inspirationgreen.com) but if you desire background as to the garden figures you would need to talk with the San Diego Botanical Garden. http://www.sdbgarden.org

    Let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

    Nice mag.

    Best, Keiren
