These low bowl succulent planters (about 16" dia.) are available at Lowe's here in San Diego for $23. The Mexican clay planters are much more affordable than the high-fired ceramic bowls at Costco.
Had they been available last summer, I would have used several of them in the SIP patio garden instead of the colored planters in the front row below. It would have been worth it even having to unplant them to install the bubble SIP plumbing for superior sub-irrigation.
Altman Plants is the supplier of the succulent bowls at both Lowe's and Costco (no longer available). They are located here in San Diego County. They call their plants "living treasures". I wouldn't argue with that.
It's understandable that succulents are now the hottest plant products here in drought stricken California. What's happening with succulents in your part of the country? Are they widely available? If so, what is the level of quality? Let us all know with a comment below.
Here are some more of them at Lowe's.

I love the architectural qualities of this and other succulent plants. What a cool (or hot) plant it is! Take your pick.
