Because they are beautiful and "kill proof", they are by far my favorite thing to plant, and since it's spring time I thought I'd share my tips with you on how I plant mine.
Tip # 1: I always buy succulents in sets of 3's:
1 focal succulent, 1 structural and 1 textural.
How can you tell the difference you ask? Easy!
Focal Succulents are usually taller or bigger than the other varieties. They bring the height to your design.
Structural Succulents are more hardy looking and have a sleek modern looking design.
Textural Succulents are the more delicate, low lying succulents.
1 pot/cup/mug/bowl/dish (it does not need to have drainage holes)
in order: structural, textural & focal.
Fill the bottom of your pot with potting soil.
Now you can start planting.
I always put textural succulents in front, if not they might get lost behind the more hardy plants.
And that's it!
Easy enough right?
How to care for your succulents:
1) MIST them with water when the soil is dry. They do not require a serious hose down. Just a light mist from a spray bottle is all they need.
2) And sunshine, outside is perfect or next to a bright window.
