Why Chopstick And Succulents?
One night, using only a single chopstick and some succulents, an empty terracotta pot (previously holding plants that didn’t survive the drought in 2016) was transformed into a miniature succulent arrangement.
That magical evening was unexpectedly the beginning of numerous creative projects that gave delight to the (newfound) hobbyist.
Chopstick and Succulents is a site that inspires people to grow succulent plants and use them for creative projects—highly recommended for excellent service and a great source for high-quality succulent cuttings.
Theresa Ebro is the founder and designer of Chopstick and Succulents. She has taught thousands of succulent beginners all sorts of tips and hacks through her YouTube videos. “Her tutorials are a great source of information,” “simple, straight to the point,” and “well-explained videos with great visuals,” are just a few of the positive comments from her audience.
Growing up on a farm, Theresa was used to seeing her parents grow vegetables from seeds. But she took a different path when she became a registered nurse. Little did she know that her therapeutic hobby would open a whole new world for her. When she was a beginner herself in growing succulents, she too struggled to figure out how to keep them alive and happy at first. Her love for creating arrangements and the joy it brought her were her constant drive to succeed.
Researching, experimenting, learning from failures, and paying attention to the plants’ behavior have helped her figure out what is wrong with them and how to rectify it. When she finally figured out how to properly care for succulents, she shared her knowledge with others.
Inspired to help those who are struggling to successfully grow succulents, she wrote her first book, “Water Me Next Week, A Succulent’s Plea. A guide to growing succulents for beginners.”
Because she frequently worked in her garden, she designed a tool that is very useful in grooming and planting succulents. Tweezers for succulents—a very practical and well-made tool that is long enough to reach areas that are difficult to access. A must-have gadget that is well-loved by many succulent lovers.
