My first succulent plant class!
So happy I finally had a chance to plant succulent!
Although I tried to plant myself, I even have a good book.
But when I saw Claire's class information, I still want to join.
Because it is in HsinChu and the time is okay for me, also the classroom seemed good.
However, the most reason I though was because I could have fun with lot of people!
Just like my stamp courses, some people are good enough and don't need to come to class.
But after being a student, I knew "learning in a class" is really different!
Then I made a registration. I also called Sara to join together.
The weather was good that day, giving me a good mood on my way to classroom.
Today Claire will teach us how to complete three bonsai.
All the succulent plants and pots were prepared.
We started with a easy bonsai which using eggshells as pots.
Claire prepared three different succulent plants for us:
Bear claws, pussy's ear and one(I don't know it's English name...)
Bear claws is really cute, I love it so much!
We put some earth into that eggshell and then put the succulent plant.
To fix it, we then put some aquatic around it.
Actually it was not difficult to achieve!
Another reason for joining this class was there were many varieties of succulent plants!
Most of these succulent plants were not easy to find, especially one inch big plants like these.
Thanks to Claire, now I had them all.
After we could comlete the first easy one, then we started to make the second and the third one.
For these two, we need to learn how to assemble those succulent plants.
one was a green ball pot and another was white square pot.
Claire gave us all the succulent plants we'll need and let us build up our own bonsai.
So that even we had same pots and same plants, but all the bonsai won't be the same.
To assemble succulent plants and to choose the pot are the one of fun points for planting.
They all have different colors and shapes, you could easily build up a small forest!
I chose three succulent plants to put into the green ball pot.
They all have similar shapes which lookes like roses.
I put one in red, one in green and one in white together.
And the others all put into the white square pot.
I let the sackcloth came out and it will looks like a little bunch of flowers.
The sackcloth and the succulent plants really match to each other, doesn't it?
After finished the three bonsai and we then have a afternoon tea.
Claire prepare a lot of beautiful masking tapes and also some tools for us to decorate our bonsai.
After decoration, the bonsai became very cute!
These are my works that day. I felt so happy!
Now the most difficult part is to take care of them.
I hope they are all well after one month, three monthes...
