Most Trader Joe’s shoppers bow down to the all-powerful Two-Buck Chuck. But now the grocery chain is selling something even more appealing in wine bottles, if you can believe it. TJ’s is currently offering an entire succulent garden planted in a wine bottle.

Trader Joe’s goers started seeing these wine bottle gardens just before Christmas, but other stores waited to roll out the succulent planters until after the holidays. Each half wine bottle comes packed with five unique succulents including Mexican Snowballs, Zebra Plants, and Jade.

And each planter has a random assortment of succulents, so you can grab one for yourself and one for your friend and have completely different arrangements. Each bottle planter appears to have a flattened bottom, too, so you don’t need to worry about it rolling away on you.

The wine bottle gardens (corks included) are going for $12.99 and make for a beautiful, long-lasting centerpiece — as long as you don’t overwater your new succulents. Luckily, the shallow layer of dirt won’t trap a ton of excess water that could cause root rot and yellowing. 

But, even so, always feel the potting soil with your finger to make sure it’s dry all the way through before giving your succulents more to drink.

Though the season of gift-giving has come to an end, it’s always appropriate to gift yourself something nice, be it a bottle of Two-Buck Chuck or a Two-Buck Chuck succulent planter.

Heck, get both — you’re still spending less than $15!

And if you like what you see, head to your local TJ’s sooner than later before all the wine bottle succulent gardens are gone.
