I am really digging on succulents right now. For a self-professed "black thumb", a plant that only needs sunlight and water "when you remember" is the perfect option. You can even break a piece off and, if planted, it will live forever as it's own entity. Not only are they low maintenance, but they are truly lovely as bouquets, place settings, favors and other decor. After use, just replant and voila! You have your very own succulent garden.
