Succulent Christmas Trees Are the Cutest New Christmas Decoration—Here’s Where to Find Yours

If you aren't in the Christmas spirit just yet, these succulent Christmas trees will get you there fast.

Sure, we just celebrated the first day of fall, but you’re going to start thinking about the holidays when you get a peek at one of our favorite new takes on a seasonal tradition. The cutest thing in Christmas is here for the 2020 holidays—succulent Christmas trees!

‘Tis the season to get creative and think beyond the traditional Christmas tree. We found plenty of crafty ideas, from tomato cages to teacups, but this one is hands-down our favorite.

Succulents for Christmas?

We got our sneak peek of this year’s daintiest tree courtesy of @TerracottaCorner on Instagram. This succulent Christmas tree, in particular, is made with nearly 25 echeverias, which are perennials. That means they’ll bloom every holiday season, just in time for the big day.

Another advantage of a succulent Christmas tree is that they’re lower maintenance than a traditional fir or pine tree. Succulents are also one of the most low-maintenance house plants of all, so they’re perfect for everyone, including those without a green thumb. Most succulents need low, indirect light and only require watering about once every ten days or so. (And the best part? These guys don’t shed.)

Where can I buy one?

As with most things these days, these plants are available online. There are lots of choices, but our favorite stands about 13 inches tall and comes from TerracottaCorner’s Etsy shop. The trees sell for around $130, which sounds pretty steep, but it’s as beautiful as it is petite, and you can re-pot the individual succulents for new displays every year.

Another added bonus for succulent Christmas trees is that you don’t need to toss them to the curb when Christmas is over. Here are several ways to recycle your real Christmas tree after the holidays.
