So many fun Halloween/fall-inspired decorations and arrangements are possible with succulents. Here are the few we’ve done in the past week or so. 

Senecio rowleyanus (string of pearls) and an itty-bitty red-tipped Sedeveria ‘Blue Elf’ make a darling couple atop this white pumpkin.


This concrete planter doesn’t scream Halloween, but the idea came from the Halloween party game where children, with their eyes shut, touch foods that are meant to bring to mind various body parts, such as spaghetti noodles representing brains or guts. Here, we have Euphorbia lactea variegata standing in for bones, Titanopsis calcareum for toes, Pachyveria glauca ‘Little Jewel’ for fingers, and Lithops for, well, bottoms.


An Altman Plants team member with some legit carving skills turned a pumpkin into a succulent-themed jack-o’-lantern. We like to think of it as a “rosette-o’-lantern.”


And now for something completely frightening…or not. Here we have Sempervivum arachnoideum ‘Cebenese’ being paid a visit by some truly terrifying craft-store spiders. The rosettes of this hens and chicks species appear to be covered with webbing, which in fact is made up of fine, cobweb-like hairs.
