Succulents in vintage plant pots

To me, the current trend for succulent house plants is very retro. Remember in the 1970s when we all had huge cheese plants? We had one in a large copper coal scuttle that sat all raggedy up to the ceiling for years and years. Then there were tumbling plants sitting in three-tiered macrame, reminding us of our foreign holidays. When we set up home in the 1990s, we all had yukkas and money plants, a gentle nod back to the 1970s which was mirrored in fashion and homewares.

But I thought I ought to try one more time especially as I am the proud owner of a wonderful vintage plant stand and a large collection of Dialene Better Maid plastic pots. Well, they were Adams when I met him, but until now they have sat empty.
