Workspace Wednesday 35.

April 25, 2012 | Workspace Wednesday

I’ve been after some sweet little succulents to pretty up my desk for like.. ever, but apparently they aren’t too popular here in Singapore (something about them being hard to keep alive?). Unfortunately even under normal circumstances I’m a bit of a serial plant-killer, so had pretty much given up on a) finding succulents, and b) keeping them alive. But then I went to good-old Ikea and saw these lovelies, and thought it was really my duty to take them home and love them, and try really really hard not to kill them. And so I did. Wish me luck!


  1. I was the same – a bit of a plant killer. So I got some succulents as well. I’ve already kiled two. :(

  2. Good luck on your succulents! I don’t have a green thumb either. Managed to kill a bonsai from Ikea with a few days.

  3. I always thought they could survive anything, but just managed to kill one of mine… Good luck, they look great :)

  4. Hihi good luck with that! :)

  5. My roommate and I got a succulent for our bathroom in the fall, and it is still living! That means there must be hope for you! We may or may not have accidentally knocked it over once or twice, but it is still a happy little plant, despite losing a little bit of dirt. But, shh! You didn’t hear it from me. ;)

    By the way, I just wanted to let you know that I’ve been following your blog, and I am hooked! This is one of my new inspirations, and I check it very often (more often than I’d like to admit) because I simply can’t wait to see what’s next! Thank you for running such a wonderful blog. :)
