Opposite of A Green Thumb? Give Succulents A Try!

Are you death to all houseplants, I sure seem to be! The lack of green in the landscape outside my window leaves me wishing I had more of a green thumb and less of a brown one. The answer? Succulents! Succulents are pretty much foolproof (from what I’ve heard), and I’m thinking even I could keep a few alive. I did some research and found a few great ideas and inspirations I put into the slideshow below, click through and tell me what you think!

Psssst… this article has some great information too!
