Love Succulents But Lack A Green Thumb? Try These Trendy Home Accessories

We, along with the rest of the millennial population, are succulent-obsessed. The trendy plants are an affordable luxury that wield tiny powers. Namely, the power to make us and our small spaces feel more sophisticated. The only downside? They’re alive… And contrary to popular belief, not impossible to kill. Watching one of these tender plants waste away is a scarring experience that can leave even the most determined apartment gardeners feeling defeated (RIP, tragically overwatered desk succulent).

But even if you’re wanted in gardening stores across the city as a cold-blooded plant killer, you don’t need to lead an entirely succulent-less existence. The answer to your brown-thumbed prayers lies ahead with ten goods that won’t expire, even without water, sunshine, and TLC. Lovers of the millennial home garden trend need no longer live in shame over past plant indiscretions — they can just buy a succulent-shaped essential oil diffuser or chic ceramic tea light instead.

There is a lot of product out there — some would say too much. At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team, but if you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.
