Adelaide’s employees willingly help anyone who comes to visit the succulent-potting station. Customers can choose from a variety of glass planters, and the floral shop offers a wide selection of succulents to choose from.

For those of us whose thumbs tend more toward the brown than the green, hardy succulents provide a way to appreciate the joys of gardening, minus the plant bloodshed.

Happily, Adelaide’s La Jolla recently introduced a succulent-potting station, complete with employees on hand to assist in creating the perfect terrarium. Customers can visit the floral shop anytime during business hours and walk out with an attractive succulent garden, or they can opt to attend one of Adelaide’s terrarium-building workshops. Another option is to set up a private workshop — perfect for bridal showers, ladies night out, etc.

Terrariums, for as elegant as they can look, are easy to assemble and easy to maintain. Succulents can grow nearly anywhere, and as such, they’re not picky about how many or how few you want to squeeze into your terrarium. And, should one of your terrarium residents bite the dust, the inexpensive plants are easy to replace — just drop a new one right in its spot. Adelaide’s employees can advise on placement and terrarium visuals.
