If you’ve kept up with magazines like Dwell, Domino, Real Simple, and others, you’d know that patio succulent gardens are all the rage in gardening circles.  Most container garden articles have glorious photos of succulents overflowing terracotta pots or stoneware.  Sure they look great, but not necessarily always (although beautiful) the “look” for a modern home.  Mobility is a must for any home, constructed pots from fiberglass, acrylic, etc. are always better choices versus stone, marble, and other heavy pottery material.  You risk not only damaging your floors but quite possibly your back in the process!  Color is very important as well when choosing your succulents, below you will find some beautiful succulents of all sizes and colors and also arranged in quite simple and unique manner where anyone can turn their home into a modern, eclectic - paradise!            

                                                            

Grow Happy, Healthy Succulent Gardens

  • Use fast draining soil when planting in containers.  Like other plants, succulents still need nutrients, so they will not grow well in a mixture made entirely from sand and gravel.  It is best to use a mixture of sand, gravel, and light compost.  You can generally buy specially mixed succulent soil/planting mix at your local garden center.  It is worth the money.  Plus, one small bag will do, unless you plant a dozen containers.
  • Find containers with drainage holes.  They have a small hole in the bottom of the sphere, which drains out into the pedestal.  That makes these succulent pots easy to move around.
  • Avoid re-potting succulents too much. It’s a good idea to select a slow-growing or small specimen for a small pot.
  • Place your newly designed containers in a sunny area.  Succulents staying indoors for a long period of time should be near a sunny window, away from a direct draft from the air-conditioner or heater.
  • Water your succulent containers when the soil is dry.  The amount and timing of water varies by species.  If you buy a plant with a tag, look up that species to see if your plant will need more water at one time of the year versus another.  In general, if the plant starts to look shriveled, it needs water!
