Beautiful Succulent Christmas Trees Might Be The Best Way To Put Up A Tree This Year

As part of the holiday tradition, millions of people set up and decorate Christmas trees each year. But sometimes, that’s not the best option. If you’re someone who loves having a beautiful tree but you have small children, pets (especially cats), no time to spend decorating, or you plan to be out of town for Christmas, perhaps there’s something better.

People have discovered an amazing alternative to a traditional Christmas tree in the form of succulents. In case you don’t know what those are, they’re live plants. But instead of watering them once a week, occasional misting and air are the only two things they need to grow and thrive.

As a bonus, you can keep a succulent tree out well beyond the holiday season. Also, you can make a tree or for added convenience, purchase one or more. These 15 examples show just how gorgeous succulents are as an alternative to a conventional Christmas tree.

1. Three times the beauty

Sure, you could put up just one succulent Christmas tree but for added enjoyment, consider a trio of trees. Known as the Alpine succulent tree, these have just the right amount of color. Top them with a miniature star and you’re good to go.

2. So festive

The pop of red color makes this a popular choice. As shown in the photo, you can set the succulent inside of a small clay pot. This particular succulent is made from more than 100 cuttings, giving it a one-of-a-kind appearance.

Most succulents don’t grow taller than 13 inches. But this one measures 18 inches high. This is so pretty that you can use it in place of a traditional Christmas tree and then as home décor all year long.
