I had never seen anything like this. Apparently people are doing bonsai arrangements with Semps.

I think some sort of bonsai pot. I have an idea that I can't wait to do now. This summer I will be posting it!

I wonder if the last one is made using a small version of the moss/soil filled sphere?
Those are awesome Clint.

Any idea on what the white succulent (sedum?) in the center of that last one is? It looks too small to be Cape Blanco....

It does Clint...I just re-visited the last link and noticed that above that mini sedum there is a semp that is smaller, on the edge of it is some black and you can see what looks like a terra cotta edge, so I think this is a pot holder, designed for small pots, and we can't see the pot sides because the plants have grown over them, I could be wrong, as gypsy says!! nodding

I see a circular hole that looks like a place a pot would go. I want one of those!

Oh man, I forgot her ATP name...she goes by gypsy on DG, so people call her that on here somtimes, but in her signature it says "I could be wrong" - Always cracks me up, since so often online people can come off more serious than intended, or in my case, more coo coo than intended! Shrug!
Patty, I can't wait till spring, don't know about yours but my semps are looking so healthy! And, I only have 1 variety of Iris, and its looking great too!! Everything is looking happy and healthy! I tip my hat to you.

Check out this Sedum. I think this is the one from that photo. Not sure, but it looks tiny and it's CHEAP.

I'm keeping a list of these small ones and I especially like that this one is white instead of yellow. Thanks for posting it Clint.
