Succulents // the perfect house plants


Succulents // the perfect house plants


Succulents are definitely amongst my favourite house plants. Not only are they very much on decorating point at the moment, but they’re also reasonably easy to keep alive – which is excellent news for an (unintentional) plant slayer like me.

I popped into Dubai Garden centre last week looking for something completely different, but their gorgeous display of ready potted succulents caught my eye. I am so glad they did because that is how I got to know about ENABLE – one of Desert Group’s admirable CSR initiatives.

ENABLE is an agricultural social enterprise that empowers people with disabilities to cultivate their entreprenurial potential by providing work and training opportunities. The ENABLE team produce a range of home and garden products, each carefully put together using a variety of durable plants and environmentally friendly materials, including organic soil.

Don’t you love a product with a feel good factor? I certainly do. I encourage all Dubai residents to support this heart-warming cause. Follow ENABLE on Instagram and visit the website to find out more.

Oh, and before I go, I found this useful guide on keeping your succulents alive, which should help to ensure the longevity of your gorgeous ENABLE products.

Maybe even buy some pieces thereafter. Do u rent? Or just create to buy. Would love to know either way as I am interested. Thank you and looking forward to hearin from you. Warm regards, Faarah

      Hello Faarah, thanks for your message. Unfortunately I don’t supply succulents at all, but you will definitely find some at Dubai Garden Centre.
