This is the main window where I have my cactus and succulent collection. It faces south and is unobstructed, winter and summer.
You can see, that like most of my windows, I try to get a lot of use out of the space. I haven’t, as in some of the more creative posts I have seen online, put shelves on the walls of this little alcove yet. That may come next.
Another way to get creative with space is to put smaller pots in between large ones. The longer I have house plants, the bigger they get ( naturally). But that leaves opportunities to place smaller pots in between the tallest ones. Where there’s a will….
Finally, this is another little cactus and succulent spot, again in a south bay window this time. These plants are larger, or in mixed containers and are too big for my little alcove but still need the sunny south window. They share it with my large tropicals, with some smaller succulent plants tucked in between.
