How to Make a Living Succulent Picture (vertical gardening) Cara and Will Meyers, owners of DIG Gardens in Santa Cruz, California, are on top of the vertical-gardening trend. "Vertical gardens are a great use of space, especially if you have a small terrace," says Cara Meyers, who leads workshops on designing and assembling picture-frame planters in DIG's urban courtyard.
Step 11: Let It Root After planting, keep the living succulent picture flat and out of direct sunlight for a week or two to allow cuttings to form roots along the stems. (For additional security, support stems with floral pins or crafts clips.) Gradually increase light levels to full sun exposure. Do not water the first two weeks.
