Wire baskets are a great option because they allow your succulents to drain properly every time you water them.

Pallets are having a moment now and it’s because they are so versatile! They also have an appealing rustic look. You can use them as wall frames bare wood just as they are or paint them to suit your fancy.

Reuse at it’s finest! This is a clever way to use almost discarded materials and give them a chance to shine.

Here’s a more elaborate display. But if you have an old window frame, up-cycling it this way is a good choice.

    Here in Boston, the Museum of Science has a ginormous wall of plants. They use moisture loving plants and keep them wet by means of a recirculating pump behind it, but succulents would look better, IMO, and would do away with the recirculating pump and the associated mess. They use a solid backing and attach rock wool to it. They then wet the rock wool (so fibers don't get everywhere), and plant the plants with no real space between them.

    I would love to do this on a normal home sized scale, as the one at the museum is at least ten meters high and five meters wide. My thought was to use a sheet of plywood as the background, and staple a plastic moisture barrier to it. Then I'd use the rock wool in place of soil, and cover with a second sheet of plastic to hold everything in place. I would wrap the plastic around the sides of the plywood and staple it in place, as staples hide a multitude of sins. Just cut a slot in the plastic and plant the succulent in the rock wool with little or no space between them.

    Anyway, thank you for your wonderful instructable and now I have even more ways to display my plants!

    Hi - You're very welcome & so right about the succulents. They make great components for living walls. I have quite few of fleshy succulents that I brought from Santa Barbara to my new home in Tucson. They're doing just fine here but I have to grow them in the shade & water them a bit more often. Tough enough for the desert! Nell
