Combine the trendiest plants from Instagram with the spookiest holiday of the year, and the result is pure genius. Target's Halloween succulents are the creepy and cute decor you need right now. It's never too early to decorate for Halloween, and this spooky collection, which will be available in early September, deserves a place in your home.

Kicky little succulents have been the internet's favorite plant for a long time, in part because they're so hardy and easy to grow in just about any container. Scroll through any feed and there's sure to be a little succulent hanging out on a desktop, or a bunch of them arranged on a bookshelf. And because there's a ton of creative ways to DIY succulent planters, as noted in Bustle, these low-key plants can grow in old tea tins, Mason jars, and even birdcages.

In a move of total brilliance, Target took hold of this houseplant trend and made it super spooky. Their Halloween succulents are as cute and creepy as you might imagine. Some are simply realistic-looking faux succulents in adorable Halloween planters, including pumpkins and ghosts. But in a weirder twist, some of its other succulents include eyeballs, mouths, and even bones. These fanciful, freaky creations deserve a spot in your home this Halloween, and perhaps year-round if you're all about the haunted home look. Best of all, these succulents are all artificial, which is good news to anyone who struggles to keep even the hardiest plants alive. Read on to see which of Target's Halloween succulents should invade your home this year.
